NAME
       autoreconf - Update generated configuration files

SYNOPSIS
       autoreconf [OPTION] ... [CONFIGURE-AC or DIRECTORY] ...

DESCRIPTION
       Run  `autoconf'	(and  `autoheader', `aclocal', `automake', `autopoint' (formerly `gettex-
       tize'), and `libtoolize' where appropriate) repeatedly to  remake  the  GNU  Build  System
       files  in  the  DIRECTORIES  or	the directory trees driven by CONFIGURE-AC (defaulting to
       `.').

       By default, it only remakes those files that are older than their  predecessors.   If  you
       install	new  versions  of  the	GNU Build System, running `autoreconf' remakes all of the
       files by giving it the `--force' option.

   Operation modes:
       -h, --help
	      print this help, then exit

       -V, --version
	      print version number, then exit

       -v, --verbose
	      verbosely report processing

       -d, --debug
	      don't remove temporary files

       -f, --force
	      consider all files obsolete

       -i, --install
	      copy missing auxiliary files

       -s, --symlink
	      with -i, install symbolic links instead of copies

       -m, --make
	      when applicable, re-run ./configure && make

       -W, --warnings=CATEGORY
	      report the warnings falling in CATEGORY [syntax]

   Warning categories include:
       `cross'
	      cross compilation issues

       `gnu'  GNU coding standards (default in gnu and gnits modes)

       `obsolete'
	      obsolete features or constructions

       `override'
	      user redefinitions of Automake rules or variables

       `portability'
	      portability issues

       `syntax'
	      dubious syntactic constructs (default)

       `unsupported'
	      unsupported or incomplete features (default)

       `all'  all the warnings

       `no-CATEGORY'
	      turn off warnings in CATEGORY

       `none' turn off all the warnings

       `error'
	      treat warnings as errors

       The environment variable `WARNINGS' is honored.	Some subtools might support other warning
       types, using `all' is encouraged.

   Library directories:
       -B, --prepend-include=DIR
	      prepend directory DIR to search path

       -I, --include=DIR
	      append directory DIR to search path

       The  environment  variables AUTOCONF, AUTOHEADER, AUTOMAKE, ACLOCAL, AUTOPOINT, LIBTOOLIZE
       are honored.

       The Debian project regards the full documentation for autoreconf to be non-free, so it  is
       not  included  in Debian.  Nevertheless, the non-free distribution that accompanies Debian
       includes the manual in its autoconf-doc package.  Otherwise, you may be able to access the
       Autoconf manual online.
