### Commentary:

## The Emacs bzr repository does not include the configure script
## (and associated helpers).  The first time you fetch Emacs from bzr,
## run this script to generate the necessary files.
## For more details, see the file INSTALL.BZR.

### Code:

## Tools we need:
## Note that we respect the values of AUTOCONF etc, like autoreconf does.
progs="autoconf automake"

## Minimum versions we need:
autoconf_min=`sed -n 's/^ *AC_PREREQ(\([0-9\.]*\)).*/\1/p'`

## FIXME how to determine this from the sources?

## $1 = program, eg "autoconf".
## Echo the version string, eg "2.59".
## FIXME does not handle things like "1.4a", but AFAIK those are
## all old versions, so it is OK to fail there.
## Also note that we do not handle micro versions.
get_version ()
    ## Remove eg "./ line 50: autoconf: command not found".
    $1 --version 2>&1 | sed -e '/not found/d' -n -e '1 s/.* \([1-9][0-9\.]*\).*/\1/p'

## $1 = version string, eg "2.59"
## Echo the major version, eg "2".
major_version ()
    echo $1 | sed -e 's/\([0-9][0-9]*\)\..*/\1/'

## $1 = version string, eg "2.59"
## Echo the minor version, eg "59".
minor_version ()
    echo $1 | sed -e 's/[0-9][0-9]*\.\([0-9][0-9]*\).*/\1/'

## $1 = program
## $2 = minimum version.
## Return 0 if program is present with version >= minumum version.
## Return 1 if program is missing.
## Return 2 if program is present but too old.
## Return 3 for unexpected error (eg failed to parse version).
check_version ()
    ## Respect eg $AUTOMAKE if it is set, like autoreconf does.
    uprog=`echo $1 | sed 'y/abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz/ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ/'`

    eval uprog=\$${uprog}

    [ x"$uprog" = x ] && uprog=$1

    have_version=`get_version $uprog`

    [ x"$have_version" = x ] && return 1

    have_maj=`major_version $have_version`
    need_maj=`major_version $2`

    [ x"$have_maj" != x ] && [ x"$need_maj" != x ] || return 3

    [ $have_maj -gt $need_maj ] && return 0
    [ $have_maj -lt $need_maj ] && return 2

    have_min=`minor_version $have_version`
    need_min=`minor_version $2`

Checking whether you have the necessary tools...

for prog in $progs; do

    eval min=\$${prog}_min

    echo "Checking for $prog (need at least version $min)..."

    check_version $prog $min


    case $retval in
        0) stat="ok" ;;
        1) stat="missing" ;;
        2) stat="too old" ;;
        *) stat="unable to check" ;;

    echo $stat

    if [ $retval -ne 0 ]; then
        missing="$missing $prog"
        eval ${prog}_why=\""$stat"\"


if [ x"$missing" != x ]; then

    cat <<EOF

Building Emacs from Bzr requires the following specialized programs:

    for prog in $progs; do
        eval min=\$${prog}_min

        echo "$prog (minimum version $min)"

    cat <<EOF

Your system seems to be missing the following tool(s):

    for prog in $missing; do
        eval why=\$${prog}_why

        echo "$prog ($why)"

    cat <<EOF

If you think you have the required tools, please add them to your PATH
and re-run this script.

Otherwise, please try installing them.
On systems using rpm and yum, try: "yum install PACKAGE"
On systems using dpkg and apt, try: "apt-get install PACKAGE"
Then re-run this script.

If you do not have permission to do this, or if the version provided
by your system is too old, it is normally straightforward to build
these packages from source.  You can find the sources at:

Download the package (make sure you get at least the minimum version
listed above), extract it using tar, then run configure, make,
make install.  Add the installation directory to your PATH and re-run
this script.

If you know that the required versions are in your PATH, but this
script has made an error, then you can simply run

autoreconf -i -I m4

instead of this script.

If all else fails, you can try using the pre-built versions of the
generated files by doing:


This is not recommended - see the comments in \`copy_autogen'.

Please report any problems with this script to .

    exit 1

echo "Your system has the required tools, running autoreconf..."

## Let autoreconf figure out what, if anything, needs doing.
autoreconf -i -I m4 || exit $?

echo "You can now run \`./configure'."

exit 0
