AUTORECONF(1)                    User Commands                   AUTORECONF(1)



NAME
       autoreconf - Update generated configuration files

SYNOPSIS
       autoreconf [OPTION] ... [CONFIGURE-AC or DIRECTORY] ...

DESCRIPTION
       Run  `autoconf'  (and  `autoheader', `aclocal', `automake', `autopoint'
       (formerly `gettextize'), and `libtoolize' where appropriate) repeatedly
       to  remake  the GNU Build System files in the DIRECTORIES or the direc-
       tory trees driven by CONFIGURE-AC (defaulting to `.').

       By default, it only remakes those files that are older than their  pre-
       decessors.   If  you install new versions of the GNU Build System, run-
       ning `autoreconf' remakes all of the files by giving it  the  `--force'
       option.

   Operation modes:
       -h, --help
              print this help, then exit

       -V, --version
              print version number, then exit

       -v, --verbose
              verbosely report processing

       -d, --debug
              don't remove temporary files

       -f, --force
              consider all files obsolete

       -i, --install
              copy missing auxiliary files

       -s, --symlink
              with -i, install symbolic links instead of copies

       -m, --make
              when applicable, re-run ./configure && make

       -W, --warnings=CATEGORY
              report the warnings falling in CATEGORY [syntax]

   Warning categories include:
       `cross'
              cross compilation issues

       `gnu'  GNU coding standards (default in gnu and gnits modes)

       `portability'

              unsupported or incomplete features (default)

       `all'  all the warnings

       `no-CATEGORY'
              turn off warnings in CATEGORY

       `none' turn off all the warnings

       `error'
              treat warnings as errors

       The  environment  variable  `WARNINGS' is honored.  Some subtools might
       support other warning types, using `all' is encouraged.

              prepend directory DIR to search path

       -I, --include=DIR
              append directory DIR to search path

       The Debian project regards the full documentation for autoreconf to  be
       non-free,  so it is not included in Debian.  Nevertheless, the non-free
       distribution that accompanies Debian includes the manual in  its  auto-
       conf-doc  package.   Otherwise,  you may be able to access the Autoconf
       manual online.
