Sorry about getting distracted from this. To summarize what I believe
were the outstanding issues with v3 :
* 'INCLUDES' is the old name for 'AM_CPPFLAGS' warning from autogen.sh
I plan to clean this up in a future patch
* 'ps$(EXEEXT)' previously defined' warning from autogen.sh
It seems to be a shortcoming of automake that there's no way to suppress
just that warning.
One possible solution is build ps.exe with a different name and rename
it while installing, but I think that is counter-productive (in the
sense that it trades this warning for making the build more complex to
* some object files are in a unexpected places in the build file
hierarchy (compared to naive expectations and/or the non-automake build)
I'm not sure if this is merely an aesthetic issue, or if there are
problems this causes.
