#13743 closed build error (fixed)

wxGTK-2.8.12 has m4 macros from two versions of bakefile

Patch: no


As shown below in the appendix, autoconf_inc.m4 is from bakefile-0.2.9 and build/aclocal/bakefile.m4 is from bakefile-0.2.8. This causes autoconf -B build/autoconf_prepend-include to fail, with

configure: error: Versions of Bakefile used to generate makefiles (0.2.9)
and configure (0.2.8) do not match.

Please ship consistent m4 macros regarding to bakefile version, to let the user run only autoconf when tweaking, instead of having to install bakefile and run bakefile_gen.

A bug report on gentoo:


$ grep -n BAKEFILE -r . | grep 0.2
./configure:49663:    BAKEFILE_BAKEFILE_M4_VERSION="0.2.8"
./build/aclocal/bakefile.m4:840:    BAKEFILE_BAKEFILE_M4_VERSION="0.2.8"

(In [69977]) Update version in bakefile.m4 and regenerate configure to reflect it.

Autoconf format files (autoconf_inc.m4 and itself) were generated
with bakefile 0.2.9 but bakefile.m4 still contained 0.2.8, resulting in errors
when configuring.

Closes #13743.
