Last week, while trying to compile IceCast2 from CVS on several Debian
machines (sid, woody, sarge), I encountered a problem where autoconf
told me to file a bug report, which I did with Debian's reportbug

here's the answer from Ben Pfaff, who's in charge of Autoconf at Debian,
which you may find interesting to read.



PS: I've not tested his suggestion yet.

It's buggy.  It uses AC_CHECK_TYPES, which only exists in recent
versions of Autoconf, but fails to specify AC_PREREQ(2.50).  You
can add that line to configure.in, or you can rename configure.in
to configure.ac.  You should report this bug and the fix to the
icecast developers.
