Description Damien Lespiau 2009-02-19 11:13:49 UTC

shave is a tiny m4 macro that allows you to make the autotools output pretty (see and )

It plays with CC and LIBTOOL to invoke wrappers instead of the actual tool.

gtk-doc does not specify a --tag option to libtool. When using libtool 1.x (libtool 2.x is fine) and a redefined CC, libtool can't infer the tag. The proposed patch fixes that by adding --tag=CC to gtk-doc's libtool.
