[MPICH] Autoconf and MPICH

I just tried it, and it prints those things but it still creates a
configure. So, just ignore those lines.

Thanks Rjeev,

I've copied it over and ran it in the mpich toplevel directory.  Now it
replies :

user at host ~/mpich $ ../../download/autoconf-1.7/autoconf-1.7

configure.in:2019  <http://configure.in:2019> : AC_COMPILE_CHECK was called
before AC_AIX
configure.in:2019: AC_TEST_PROGRAM was called before AC_AIX
configure.in:2020: AC_COMPILE_CHECK was called before AC_MINIX 
configure.in:2020: AC_TEST_PROGRAM was called before AC_MINIX

Any ideas?

You can get autoconf 1.7 from www.mcs.anl.gov/~thakur/autoconf.tar.gz

have copied it over.

I am working with the mpich-1.2.6 build system, and trying to rebuild the
configure script.  I'm running autoconf version 2.59e (debian), and when I
run autoconf I get the following error:

user at host:~/mpich_please_work$ autoconf 
aclocal.m4:414: error: m4_defn: undefined macro: _m4_divert_diversion
aclocal.m4:414: the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1

I believe that I read somewhere that I should be using an old ( 1.7) version
of autoconf.  I'm not sure of the validity of this statement, and I cannot
find a version of autoconf dating back that far to verify it.   Does anyone
have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
