     13 1. Autoconf 2.61 (currently 2.59).  Advantages? [[BR]] (LH) Well, for one, it fixes an issue with the declaration of exit() that is pervasive across many basic autoconf tests which construct and compile short code fragments.[[BR]] Along the lines of Andreas' comment below about libtool, there are many comments in autoconf macros to the effect that cl support really needs some attention. Are we up for this? Might save time in the long run.

    1515 1. Automake 1.10 (currently 1.9.6).  Advantages?
     
    1919AW: I will start with this on my settings now, using Bonmin as the example.  At some point I will also create a pseudo "!CoinAll" project which we can use to test the new coin.m4 etc on.

     21LH: I've been using autoconf 2.61 across several platforms for about 10 days now, with no noticeable ill effects.

    2527AW: I'm going to look into this.

     29LH: Some care is required. We need to get our compilers and compilation flags set correctly before calling COIN_INIT_AUTOTOOLS, else various macros down in the guts of autotools will 'help' us by providing defaults which are often incorrect (particularly in non-GCC environments).
