    Various "make distcheck" and portability fixups · 5706b6d8
    Daniel Richard G authored
    * Don't use @VAR@, use $(VAR). Autoconf's AC_SUBST provides us the Make
       variable, it allows overriding the value at the command line, and
       (notably) it avoids a Make parse error in the libxml2_la_LDFLAGS
       assignment when @MODULE_PLATFORM_LIBS@ is empty
    * Changed how the THREADS_W32 mechanism switches the build between
       testThreads.c and testThreadsWin32.c as appropriate; using AM_CONDITIONAL
       allows this to work cleanly and plays well with dependencies
    * testapi.c should be specified as BUILT_SOURCES
    * Create symlinks to the test/ and result/ subdirs so that the runtests
       target is usable in out-of-source-tree builds
    * Don't do MAKEFLAGS+=--silent as this is not portable to non-GNU Makes
    * Fixed incorrect find(1) syntax in the "cleanup" rule, and doing "rm -f"
       instead of just "rm" is good form
    * (DIST)CLEANFILES needed a bit more coverage to allow "make distcheck" to
    * Need AC_PROG_LN_S to create test/ and result/ symlinks in Makefile.am
    * AC_LIBTOOL_WIN32_DLL and AM_PROG_LIBTOOL are obsolete; these have been
       superceded by LT_INIT
    * Don't rebuild docs by default, as this requires GNU Make (as
    * Check for uint32_t as some platforms don't provide it
    * Check for some more functions, and undefine HAVE_MMAP if we don't also
       HAVE_MUNMAP (one system I tested on actually needed this)
    * Changed THREADS_W32 from a filename insert into an Automake conditional
    * The "Copyright" file will not be in the current directory if builddir !=
    * EXTRA_DIST cannot use wildcards when they refer to generated files; this
       breaks dependencies. What I did was define EXTRA_DIST_wc, which uses GNU
       Make $(wildcard) directives to build up a list of files, and EXTRA_DIST,
       as a literal expansion of EXTRA_DIST_wc. I also added a new rule,
       "check-extra-dist", to simplify checking that the two variables are
       equivalent. (Note that this works only when builddir == srcdir)
       (I can implement this differently if desired; this is just one way of
       doing it)
    * Don't define an "all" target; this steps on Automake's toes
    * Fixed up the "libxml2-api.xml ..." rule by using $(wildcard) for
       dependencies (as Make doesn't process the wildcards otherwise) and
       qualifying appropriate files with $(srcdir)
       (Note that $(srcdir) is not needed in the dependencies, thanks to VPATH,
       which we can count on as this is GNU-Make-only code anyway)
    * Qualified appropriate files with $(srcdir)
    * Added an "uninstall-local" rule so that "make distcheck" passes
    * Rather than use a wildcard that doesn't work, use a substitution that
       most Make programs can handle
    * Do the same here
    * Some platforms (e.g. MSVC 6) already #define INVALID_SOCKET:
         user@host:/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Microsoft Visual Studio/VC98/\
         Include$ grep -R INVALID_SOCKET .
         ./WINSOCK.H:#define INVALID_SOCKET  (SOCKET)(~0)
         ./WINSOCK2.H:#define INVALID_SOCKET  (SOCKET)(~0)
    * Support ancient GCCs (I was actually able to build the library with 2.5
       but for this bit)
    * Expanded CLEANFILES to allow "make distcheck" to pass
    * Define CLEANFILES instead of a "clean" rule, and added tmp.xml to allow
       "make distcheck" to pass
    * Use HAVE_MMAP instead of the less explicit HAVE_SYS_MMAN_H (as some
       systems have the header but not the function)
    * Use HAVE_MMAP instead of the less explicit HAVE_SYS_MMAN_H
    * Don't use putenv() if it's not available
    * This fixes the following build error on Solaris 8:
         libtool: compile:  cc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I./include -I./include \
         -D_REENTRANT -D__EXTENSIONS__ -D_REENTRANT -Dsparc -Xa -mt -v \
         -xarch=v9 -xcrossfile -xO5 -c threads.c  -KPIC -DPIC -o threads.o
         "threads.c", line 442: controlling expressions must have scalar type
         "threads.c", line 512: controlling expressions must have scalar type
         cc: acomp failed for threads.c
         *** Error code 1
    * Define isascii() if the system doesn't provide it
    * The trio library's HAVE_CONFIG_H header is not the same as LibXML2's
       HAVE_CONFIG_H header; this change is needed to avoid a double-inclusion
    * Added support for the LZMA compression option
    * Added appropriate bits to support WITH_LZMA=1
    * Install the header files under $(INCPREFIX)\libxml2\libxml instead of
       $(INCPREFIX)\libxml, to mirror the install location on Unix+Autotools
    * @MODULE_PLATFORM_LIBS@ (usually "-ldl") needs to be in there in order for
       `xml2-config --libs` to provide a complete set of dependencies
    * Use HAVE_MMAP instead of the less-explicit HAVE_SYS_MMAN_H
