    You should use the 'AC_CONFIG_HEADERS' macro instead.

Please note that although this package is stable and automake-1.13 is ~arch,
this is still a priority fix because ~arch users are immediately affected.

The sgml herd has no maintainers, so please feel free to fix this yourself or treeclean the package.
Comment 2 James Cloos 2013-05-15 11:48:56 UTC
Or perhaps wait for the next version of automake, which will not error out when the old macros are used.
