I was just poking around with a freshly downloaded copy of v2.2.0 to
look at a tarball of code mods a friend of mine gave me based upon "a
CVS snapshot" he checked out around 8/16/04; he also sent me the
original source tarball of the CVS checkout. I wanted to diff his
starting point with an "Official release".
I found that the v2.2.0 distribution contains automake built files,
Makefile.in's, configure, etc. and I wanted to get rid of them to make
it look more like the CVS co.
So, I added AM_MAINTAINER_MODE as the new line 8 of configure.in; ran
autojunk and then ran ./configure --enable-maintainer-mode.
I then ran make maintainer-clean, and, to my surprise the AM built files
were still there. I expected them to be removed.
Was my expectation wrong? Did I miss a step? Or am I totally off base
and can somebody tell me the "right" way to remove the AM built files?
I'm fairly new to using the GNU auto suite; but I'm trying to use it
more in my own work; and obviously, SNORT is a good sample use case.
I'd appreciate any tips on this.
