GNU Autoconf, Automake and Libtool, by G. V. Vaughan, B. Elliston, T. Tromey, and I. L. Taylor. New Riders, 2000, ISBN 1578701902.
configure will accept a system type as an
option by itself. Such an option will override the defaults for build,
host and target system types. The following configure statement will
configure a cross toolchain that will run on NetBSD/alpha but generate
code for GNU Hurd/sparc, which is also the build platform.
./configure --host=alpha-netbsd sparc-gnu
It is on purpose that we don't document
autom4te which is yet
another forthcoming Autoconf feature: it is being developed and
polished. It will be documented when ready for wide spread use. Do not
use it without at least being member of the Autoconf mailing lists.
