Description Gaetan Nadon 2009-09-01 06:53:27 UTC
When running autoreconf -Wall on any configure.ac using XORG_RELEASE_VERSION, the following
warning is emitted:

	configure.ac:34: warning: The macro `AC_HELP_STRING' is obsolete.
	configure.ac:34: You should run autoupdate.
	../../lib/autoconf/general.m4:209: AC_HELP_STRING is expanded from...
	xorgversion.m4:33: XORG_RELEASE_VERSION is expanded from...

Replacing it with AS_HELP_STRING resolves the warning. Using autoconf verison 2.63.

From Autoconf manual:

    Replaced by AS_HELP_STRING (see AS_HELP_STRING). 

Both xorgversion.m4 and xorg-macros.m4.in are affected.
