NAME

       autoreconf - Update generated configuration files


SYNOPSIS

       autoreconf [OPTION]... [DIRECTORY]...


DESCRIPTION

       Run  'autoconf'  and, when needed, 'aclocal', 'autoheader', 'automake',
       'autopoint' (formerly 'gettextize'), 'glibtoolize', 'intltoolize',  and
       'gtkdocize'  to  regenerate  the  GNU  Build  System files in specified
       DIRECTORIES and their subdirectories (defaulting to '.').

       By default, it only remakes those  files  that  are  older  than  their
       sources.   If you install new versions of the GNU Build System, you can
       make 'autoreconf' remake all of the files by giving  it  the  '--force'
       option.

   Operation modes:
       -h, --help
              print this help, then exit

       -V, --version
              print version number, then exit

       -v, --verbose
              verbosely report processing

       -d, --debug
              don't remove temporary files

       -f, --force

       -i, --install

       --no-recursive
              don't rebuild sub-packages

       -s, --symlink
              with -i, install symbolic links instead of copies

       -m, --make
              when applicable, re-run ./configure && make

       -W, --warnings=CATEGORY
              report the warnings falling in CATEGORY [syntax]
