Autoconf 2.59

Autoconf 2.59 is now available from the following URLs:

ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/autoconf/autoconf-2.59.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/autoconf/autoconf-2.59.tar.bz2

Here are the MD5 checksums:

d4d45eaa1769d45e59dcb131a4af17a0 autoconf-2.59.tar.gz
1ee40f7a676b3cfdc0e3f7cd81551b5f autoconf-2.59.tar.bz2

There is only one major change in Autoconf 2.59:

  • ac_abs_builddir etc.
    Absolute paths were actually relative in 2.58.

Autoconf 2.59 was originally released on 2003-11-12; see <http://mail.gnu.org/archive/html/autotools-announce/2003-11/msg00003.html>. Unfortunately it wasn't copied to ftp ftp.gnu.org until today due to problems that we had with the new ftp ftp.gnu.org upload procedures. Sorry about the delay.
