#28 closed enhancement (wontfix)

allow autoconf and automake from non-path locations

Reported by: andreasw Owned by: andreasw
Priority: minor Component: configuration tests
Version: 0.5 Keywords:


Allow that PMs can set the environment variable AUTOTOOLS_DIR for the correct verions of the autotools, even when those are not the first in the PATH. This could be done by overwriting automake's AUTOCONF and AUTOMAKE variables.

Actaully, this is not an option. The version of autopath and autoconf are used must be in the path, since the tools call themselves.
