AUTORECONF(1)                    User Commands                   AUTORECONF(1)




NAME

       autoreconf - Update generated configuration files


SYNOPSIS

       autoreconf [OPTION] ... [CONFIGURE-AC or DIRECTORY] ...


DESCRIPTION

       Run  ‘autoconf’  (and  ‘autoheader’, ‘aclocal’, ‘automake’, ‘autopoint’
       (formerly ‘gettextize’), and ‘libtoolize’ where appropriate) repeatedly
       to  remake  the GNU Build System files in the DIRECTORIES or the direc-
       tory trees driven by CONFIGURE-AC (defaulting to ‘.’).

       By default, it only remakes those files that are older than their  pre-
       decessors.   If  you install new versions of the GNU Build System, run-
       ning ‘autoreconf’ remakes all of the files by giving it  the  ‘--force’
       option.

   Operation modes:
       -h, --help
              print this help, then exit

       -V, --version
              print version number, then exit

       -v, --verbose
              verbosely report processing

       -d, --debug
              don’t remove temporary files

       -f, --force
              consider all files obsolete

       -i, --install
              copy missing auxiliary files

       -s, --symlink
              with -i, install symbolic links instead of copies

       -m, --make
              when applicable, re-run ./configure && make

       -W, --warnings=CATEGORY
              report the warnings falling in CATEGORY [syntax]

   Warning categories include:
       ‘cross’
              cross compilation issues

       ‘gnu’  GNU coding standards (default in gnu and gnits modes)

       ‘none’ turn off all the warnings

       ‘error’

       -I, --include=DIR
