bug#16292: Emacs trunk does not use `...' for quoting names anymore

Please note that when I mean two config.log files use /usr/bin/makeinfo, I really mean the logs contains the path to the makeinfo I'm using.

Hi I am the user in discussion,

The output is in the attached file. Probably the Emacs pretest got pre-compiled info documents?

Some relevant information:

- Output from makeinfo --version:

makeinfo (GNU texinfo) 5.2

- Which makeinfo I am using:


- The other two config.log files for each Emacs version, both use /usr/bin/makeinfo

I also installed texinfo 5.1 and the result is the same.

Hi again,


Thanks for that info - I've passed it along to the bug thread.


From the bug thread there is this request from you. Could you check this?

Thx - Drew


I built from source with makinfo 5.2. However, makeinfo 5.2 works fine for Emacs pretest (emacs 24.3.90), but not for Emacs trunk(24.4.50):

bzr branch bzr://bzr.savannah.gnu.org/emacs/trunk

Here are the steps to build:

- ./configure --with-x-toolkit=gtk

- make

- sudo make install
