Description Gaetan Nadon 2009-10-26 13:28:49 UTC
The following lines are used in 161 makefiles:

# Strings to replace in man pages
  XORGMANNAME = X Version 11

SED = sed

        -e 's|__vendorversion__|"$(XORGRELSTRING)" "$(XORGMANNAME)"|' \
        -e 's|__appmansuffix__|$(APP_MAN_SUFFIX)|g'

By adding to XORG_MANPAGE_SECTIONS macro:
  XORG_MAN_NAME='X Version 11'

we can write in all these makefiles:

# Strings to replace in man pages
        -e 's|__vendorversion__|"$(PACAKGE_STRING)" "$(XORG_MAN_NAME)"|' \
        -e 's|__appmansuffix__|$(APP_MAN_SUFFIX)|g'

AC_PROG_SED will test for an appropriate sed program that does not truncate lines and set the SED variable accordingly.
