autoconf: A GNU tool for automatically configuring source code1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

Autoconf is an extensible package of m4 macros that produce shell scripts to automatically configure software source code packages. These scripts can adapt the packages to many kinds of UNIX-like systems without manual user intervention. Autoconf creates a configuration script for a package from a template file that lists the operating system features that the package can use, in the form of m4 macro calls.
