I'm in the process of merging the updates from tex-live into the
xdvik development tree at
Peter B was going to send you a patch after the release. (I think he's
offline for a time right now.) He had a few additional cleanups to
make. The autoconf improvements were his work, all kudos to him.
but this causes a missing newline in the configure output:
Oops, I didn't realize that. I'll have to change it to output something
innocuous, I guess.
Could this test actually be removed altogether,
Yes, sure. I just didn't want to tamper with all the configure.in's at
It seems that one would need to create a custom texmf.cnf with the
'real' paths instead of SELFAUTOPARENT,
I suppose so, essentially recreating what used to be done in kpathsea.
The build-time paths were a headache; there's no going back.
I have the impression that anyone (e.g., distros) not using the SELFAUTO
stuff already have to change many things.
