Infinite make rebuilds
Issue #66 wontfix
autoreconf -i ./configure make -B
Expected: rebuild everything once regardless of freshness (forced rebuild).
Actual: rebuilds all the things forever in a loop. Non-forced
make works fine.
This broke recently. Tested with most recent versions of Ubuntu, macOS, and Fedora.
I can reproduce the issue running
gmake -Bwith GNU Make 4.2.1.
The build goes into an infinite loop running configure.
autoreconf -i && ./configure && gmake -Bwith versions as old as 1.6.0 and still see
gmake -Bloop in the configure script. I think this might be something in autoconf that prevents you from running make with -B.
