Is that the same for Mdk 9.1?

I can't understand why newer versions of auto conf/make weren't shipped
with 9.0 - RH was using them.

Yuk. Extra layers to faff. Install the newer versions of
autoconf/automake - they will work with older versions of software -
they just throw up more reports of things which have changed.

I hope that doesn't mess things up for other tifflib stuff as well.

Honestly, just get the newer versions of autoconf and automake and be
done with it. Saves all of this messing around.


The world is throwing away oppressive regimes
Which don't allow people to choose.
Wars are fought to topple these people.
Yet the folks who do this, still use Windows.
Double standards or not understanding why they did it?
