18.5.1 Changed File Names

If you have an ‘aclocal.m4’ installed with Autoconf (as opposed to in a particular package’s source directory), you must rename it to ‘acsite.m4’. See section Using autoconf to Create configure.

If you distribute ‘’ with your package, rename it to ‘install-sh’ so make builtin rules don’t inadvertently create a file called ‘install’ from it. AC_PROG_INSTALL looks for the script under both names, but it is best to use the new name.

If you were using ‘’, ‘’, or ‘acconfig.h’, you still can, but you have less clutter if you use the AH_ macros. See section Autoheader Macros.
