       autoconf2.13  - creates scripts to configure source code packages using


       autoconf2.13  [  --help  |  -h  ]  [  --localdir=dir  |  -l  dir  ]   [
       --macrodir=dir | -m dir ] [ --version ]


       To  create  configure  from, run the autoconf2.13 program
       with no arguments.  autoconf2.13 processes  with  the  m4
       macro  processor,  using the Autoconf macros.  If you give autoconf2.13
       an argument, it reads that file instead of and writes  the
       configuration  script  to  the standard output instead of to configure.
       If you give autoconf2.13 the argument -, it reads  the  standard  input
       instead  of  and  writes  the configuration script on the
       standard output.

       The Autoconf macros are defined in several files.  Some  of  the  files
       are  distributed with Autoconf; autoconf2.13 reads them first.  Then it
       looks for the optional file acsite.m4 in the  directory  that  contains
       the  distributed  Autoconf  macro  files,  and  for  the  optional file
       aclocal.m4 in the current directory.   Those  files  can  contain  your
       site’s  or the package’s own Autoconf macro definitions.  If a macro is
       defined in more than one of the files that autoconf2.13 reads, the last
       definition it reads overrides the earlier ones.

       autoconf2.13 accepts the following options:


       -h     Print a summary of the command line options and exit.


       -l DIR Look for the package file aclocal.m4 in directory DIR instead of
              in the current directory.


       -m DIR Look for the installed macro files in directory  DIR.   You  can
              also  set  the  AC_MACRODIR environment variable to a directory;
              this option overrides the environment variable.

              Print the version number of Autoconf and exit.
