Feature #1173: Automatic process launching, thread spawning, and hardware binding
Don't require autoconf to be installed on user systems for hwloc build
#3 Updated by Gengbin Zheng over 2 years ago
it seems some systems requires autoconf. It seems that there is some issue with hwloc's default configure script that does not work well with embedded build. It sometimes works, sometimes not. I don't know the reason.
Most systems has "autogen.sh" script which calls autoreconf, same as we do here.
I could create an autogen.sh that calls autoreconf so that it looks more like a common practice. User still needs to have autoconf installed, which is a common. I don't see why that would be a problem.
