On page 158, paragraph 3 of the 2.63 Autoconf manual, it states:
"If a macro doesn’t use AC_REQUIRE, is expected to never be the object
of an AC_REQUIRE directive, and macros required by other macros inside
arguments do not need to be expanded before this macro, then use m4_define."
So the Autoconf manual is encouraging users to use m4_define, however,
when I define a macro using m4_define in a .m4 file in the m4 directory
of my project, aclocal ignores it by not m4_including it in the
generated aclocal.m4 file. It appears to require the use of AC_DEFUN,
rather than m4_define in stand-alone .m4 files.
Is this a bug in aclocal?
I'm using the latest beta version of Automake - 1.10b.
Thanks in advance,
- aclocal problems,
