# THIS ECLASS IS DEAD: It has been integrated into portage
# Author: Will Woods <>
# This eclass is used to automatically update files that typically come with
# automake to the newest version available on the system. The most common use
# of this is to update config.guess and config.sub when configure dies from
# misguessing your canonical system name (CHOST). It can also be used to update
# other files that come with automake, e.g. depcomp, mkinstalldirs, etc.
# usage: gnuconfig_update [file1 file2 ...]
# if called without arguments, config.guess and config.sub will be updated.
# All files in the source tree ($S) with the given name(s) will be replaced
# with the newest available versions chosen from the list of locations in
# gnuconfig_findnewest(), below.
# gnuconfig_update should generally be called from src_unpack()
# Wrapper function for gnuconfig_do_update. If no arguments are given, update
# config.sub and config.guess (old default behavior), otherwise update the
# named files.
gnuconfig_update() {
# hmm some packages (like binutils gcc glibc) still use this ...
# echo
# ewarn "QA Notice: Please stop using me, portage updates files for you."
