#89 closed enhancement (fixed)

run_autotools fails silently if autoconf is not present

Description

If there is no version of autoconf installed on the machine, then the script exits with no error message or indication of why it failed. This means that when running a script like prepare_new_stable (for example) that calls run_autotools, the calling script exits with no error message and fails to perform any clean-up actions. It looks like the reason is that the script implicitly assumes in several places that the autoconf command is present and that what needs to be checked is just whether it's the right version.

Thanks. You should get an error message with trunk rev2362. Will make it into stable some day.
