[07:51:12] <wjp> hi Fingolfin
[07:52:23] <Fingolfin> hi willem
[08:09:32] <wjp> I think I know why configure fails
[08:10:26] <wjp> it doesn't do the "checking for suffix of object files" check before any compilation checks
[08:11:02] <wjp> so since it can't find the produced .o files, configure thinks the compilation failed even though $? == 0
[08:11:45] <wjp> so we're probably missing some important 'call' early in configure.ac
[08:31:56] <wjp> ah
[08:33:00] <wjp> it seems to be getting hopelessly confused by the AC_PATH_XTRA in the linux*) section near the top of configure.ac
[08:34:31] <wjp> I guess the macros aren't designed to be put in conditional blocks
[08:36:38] <wjp> and to top it off, we're not even using the output of AC_PATH_XTRA at all
[08:46:13] <wjp> r5946 should fix it, I hope
[08:46:47] <Fingolfin> will try
[08:46:48] <-- ettin has left IRC (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
[08:46:48] <Fingolfin> also
[08:47:07] <Fingolfin> it seems we might be doing something wrong, since autoconf apparently doesn't pick up the app name "exult"
[08:47:26] <Fingolfin> we call different macros than DOSBox for that. I think our way is the old obsolete one, actually
[08:47:33] <Fingolfin> might be a good idea to revamp configure.ac a bit?
[08:48:24] <Fingolfin> wjp: in particular, AC_INIT: we have
[08:48:28] <Fingolfin> AC_INIT(exult.cc)
[08:48:35] <Fingolfin> but compare that with http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/manual/autoconf-2.57/html_node/autoconf_16.html
[08:48:39] <Fingolfin> (or with the way DOSBox uses it)
[08:49:28] <wjp> hm, seems outdated, yes
[08:49:40] <Fingolfin> instead we use the outdated form of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE
[08:49:48] <Fingolfin> these days we should just do AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(), it seems
[08:49:53] <Fingolfin> if http://www.delorie.com/gnu/docs/automake/automake_24.html is right
[08:50:58] <Fingolfin> well, maybe you can overhaul it a bit... ? :)
[08:51:04] <Fingolfin> me, I have to go now, get some work done... ;)

[16:23:43] <h0h0-com> do you know me?
[16:24:04] <wjp> not as far as I know
[16:25:52] <h0h0-com> I'm asking because someone has been posing as me. A google search brought me here
[16:26:02] <h0h0-com> but it isn't that important, I was merely curious
[16:27:44] * wjp searches; 31 march?
[16:28:18] <h0h0-com> that could be correct
