    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.
Comment 1 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2014-05-31 16:25:08 UTC
fixed in 0.12.5-r1's ebuild (no revbump required), and the macro was reintroduced temporarily in automake-1.13.2 again, so this wasn't fatal anymore anyway, but for future releases, it was a good to change this
