NAME
       autoreconf - Update generated configuration files

SYNOPSIS
       autoreconf [OPTION]... [DIRECTORY]...

DESCRIPTION
       Run  `autoconf'	(and  `autoheader', `aclocal', `automake', `autopoint'
       (formerly `gettextize'),	and `libtoolize' where appropriate) repeatedly
       to remake the GNU Build System files in specified DIRECTORIES and their
       subdirectories (defaulting to `.').

       By default, it only remakes those  files	 that  are  older  than	 their
       sources.	  If you install new versions of the GNU Build System, you can
       make `autoreconf' remake	all of the files by giving  it	the  `--force'
       option.

   Operation modes:
       -h, --help
	      print this help, then exit

       -V, --version
	      print version number, then exit

       -v, --verbose
	      verbosely	report processing

       -d, --debug
	      don't remove temporary files

       -f, --force
	      consider all files obsolete

       -i, --install
	      copy missing auxiliary files

       --no-recursive
	      don't rebuild sub-packages

       -s, --symlink
	      with -i, install symbolic	links instead of copies

       -m, --make
	      when applicable, re-run ./configure && make

       -W, --warnings=CATEGORY
	      report the warnings falling in CATEGORY [syntax]

   Warning categories include:
       `cross'
	      cross compilation	issues

       `gnu'  GNU coding standards (default in gnu and gnits modes)

       `obsolete'
	      obsolete features	or constructions

       `override'
	      user redefinitions of Automake rules or variables

       `portability'
	      portability issues (default in gnu and gnits modes)

       `syntax'
	      dubious syntactic	constructs (default)

       `unsupported'
	      unsupported or incomplete	features (default)

       `all'  all the warnings

       `no-CATEGORY'
	      turn off warnings	in CATEGORY

       `none' turn off all the warnings

       `error'
	      treat warnings as	errors

       The  environment	 variable  `WARNINGS' is honored.  Some	subtools might
       support other warning types, using `all'	is encouraged.

   Library directories:
       -B, --prepend-include=DIR
	      prepend directory	DIR to search path

       -I, --include=DIR
	      append directory DIR to search path

       The environment variables  AUTOM4TE,  AUTOCONF,	AUTOHEADER,  AUTOMAKE,
       ACLOCAL,	AUTOPOINT, LIBTOOLIZE, M4, and MAKE are	honored.
