- Subject: autoconf / autoheader tmp files
The wrapper scripts for autoconf and autoheader use temporary files
that they (are supposed to) remove on exit (using trap 0). But I tend
to find *lots* of these directories in /tmp (e.g. /tmp/acXXXXX and
/tmp/ahXXXXX). Just running autoconf or autoheader with no arguments
creates a nice example.
But I can't see what the problem is with the scripts: they set a trap
to clean up and it looks fine to me.
