All of our configure.ac produce the following (or equivalent) warnings:
configure.ac:28: warning: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE: two- and three-arguments forms are deprecated. For more info, see:
and many instances of
warning: source file '$(srcdir)/../../libutils/statistics.c' is in a subdirectory,
but option 'subdir-objects' is disabled
for diverse files, not just the one mentioned here.
The documentation overtly warns that support for the deprecated INIT may be retracted some day.
We should aim to fix this sooner rather than later, so that we don't get caught out by that.
for the fix I came up with on reading the automake documentation; however, this changed lots of details in the generated Makefiles and broke the build.
We'll need someone more familiar with automake to look into this if we're to fix it cleanly.
