NAME autoreconf - Update generated configuration files

SYNOPSIS autoreconf [OPTION]... [DIRECTORY]...

DESCRIPTION Run autoconf (and autoheader , aclocal , automake , autopoint (formerly gettextize), and libtoolize where appropriate) repeatedly to remake the GNU Build System files in specified DIRECTORIES and their subdirectories (defaulting to .).

By default, it only remakes those files that are older than their sources. If you install new versions of the GNU Build System, you can make autoreconf remake all of the files by giving it the --force option.

-f, --force consider all files obsolete

-s, --symlink with -i, install symbolic links instead of copies

-m, --make when applicable, re-run ./configure && make
