I'll upgrade my code according to the GNU hello 2.10 codebase then. It will be
interesting to see the changes. I had based my own build system on the 2.7
It seems that the 2.10 GNU hello works correctly with OpenBSD 6.1 and Ubuntu
16.04 and that my problems were either local or with old version 2.7.
I'm trying to learn were the variables are set e.g. PACKAGE_NAME and
PACKAGE_URL to generate manpages for my own program.
