Autoconf macros for Erlang support committed into Autoconf’s CVS

My Autoconf macros for Erlang applications configuration have been committed intoAutoconf’s CVS repository. The final macros are a little different from my original proposal: all macros now have the AC_ERLANG_ prefix, instead of the ERLANG_ prefix.

These macros will be included in the next release of Autoconf (version 2.95c). Until this version is released, one can use the CVS version, or use my macros with previous versions of Autoconf. In the latter case, beware to use the latest version of my macros, and to install them following my instructions.

If you are running Debian GNU/Linux, you can instead simply install the Debian package (named autoconf-erlang) that I have made to install the macros, by adding the following two lines into your /etc/apt/sources/list file:

deb unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src unstable main contrib non-free

and by running:

> sudo apt-get update
> sudo apt-get install autoconf-erlang

I will update Autoconf’s documentation to describe the macros very soon.
