    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.

Are we up for this? Might save time in the long run to get the changes we need into the autoconf source tree. Not to mention the warm fuzzy feeling of contributing back to autoconf.

    4141Lou's suggested handling of --enable-doscompile?

     43LH: I've attached versions of [attachment:coin.m4 BuildTools/coin.m4] and [attachment:configure.ac CoinUtils/configure.ac] which implement the --enable-doscompile idea for msvc (cl/link) and mingw (gcc/g++/ld with -mno-cygwin). If you omit --enable-doscompile, you'll get a standard cygwin build. Msys is missing; I don't have that environment to play with. The files also cope with absence of a Fortran compiler, as mentioned in the mailing list. These files expect to see autoconf 2.61.
