Description Jeff Johnston 2007-02-26 19:33:42 UTC
When an Autotools project gets refactored, the project is moved to a different
location.  This causes problems because the top-level config.status will have
directory information that isn't moved.  Either all the config.status files need
to be changed or else a full reconfiguration should occur on the next build.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnston 2007-03-19 22:48:24 UTC
A fix has been made to add the project name into the configuration settings
file.  If the project name doesn't match the current project name, a full
reconfigure is performed.  Older projects will not be reconfigured the first
time after this fix is applied as no reconfiguration is performed if the project
information is missing, however, the configure settings file will be rewritten
in the new format.
