Bugs fixed in 1.7.1:
* Honor `ansi2knr' for files built in subdirectories, or using per-targets
* Aclocal should now recognize macro names containing parentheses, e.g.
AC_DEFUN([AC_LANG_PREPROC(Fortran 90)], [...]).
* Erase *.sum and *.log files created by DejaGnu, during `make distclean'.
* Install Python files even if they were built. (PR/369)
* Have stamp-vti dependent upon configure instead of configure.ac, as the
version might not be defined in the latter. (PR/358)
* Reorder arguments passed to a couple of commands, so things works
* Fix a regex that can cause Perl to segfault on large input.
* Fix distribution of packages that have some sources defined conditionally,
as in the `Conditional compilation using Automake conditionals' example
of the manual.
* Fix spurious test suite failures on IRIX.
* Don't report a required variable as undefined if it has been
defined conditionally for the "right" conditions.
* Fix cleaning of the /tmp subdirectory used by `make distcheck', in case
`make distcheck' fails.
* Fix distribution of included Makefile fragment, so we don't create
spurious directories in the distribution. (PR/366)
* Don't complain that a target lacks `.$(EXEEXT)' when it has it.
