       autoreconf - Update generated configuration files


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


       Run  `autoconf'  (and  `autoheader', `aclocal', `automake', `autopoint'
       (formerly `gettextize'), and `glibtoolize' where  appropriate)  repeat-
       edly  to remake 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'

   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
              consider all files obsolete

       -i, --install
              copy missing auxiliary files

              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]

   Warning categories include:
              cross compilation issues

       `gnu'  GNU coding standards (default in gnu and gnits modes)

              obsolete features or constructions

              user redefinitions of Automake rules or variables

              portability issues (default in gnu and gnits modes)

              dubious syntactic constructs (default)

              unsupported or incomplete features (default)

       `all'  all the warnings

              turn off warnings in CATEGORY

       `none' turn off all the warnings

              treat warnings as errors

       The  environment  variable  `WARNINGS' is honored.  Some subtools might
       support other warning types, using `all' is encouraged.

   Library directories:
       -B, --prepend-include=DIR
              prepend directory DIR to search path

       -I, --include=DIR
              append directory DIR to search path

       The environment  variables  AUTOCONF,  AUTOHEADER,  AUTOMAKE,  ACLOCAL,
       AUTOPOINT, LIBTOOLIZE, M4 are honored.
