dist, MANIFEST checking, and POSIX

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



Configure contains the following line:

	awk '$1 !~ /PACK[A-Z]+/ {print $1}' $rsrc/MANIFEST | split -50

'split -50' is an obsolete form, apparently, and is disallowed entirely
by the new version of POSIX so it may disappear from some systems soon
(see the thread starting at
http://lists.debian.org/debian-glibc-0308/msg00120.html, as well as
It seems we're supposed to use 'split -l 50' instead.

However, this part of Configure comes straight from Chk_MANI.U in the
dist package. Wayne, would it be possible to update the modified dist
package on trn.sourceforge.net with this change?
