module-init-tools 0.9.3 -- "missing" issue

Date: Tue Dec 10 2002 - 10:44:33 EST

As per the README...

[asuardi@dolphin module-init-tools-0.9.3]$ aclocal
[asuardi@dolphin module-init-tools-0.9.3]$ automake --add-missing --copy installing `./depcomp'
[asuardi@dolphin module-init-tools-0.9.3]$ autoconf

configure: creating ./config.status

So - it complains about 'missing' not knowing the --run option. Indeed:

[asuardi@dolphin module-init-tools-0.9.3]$ ./missing --help
./missing [OPTION]... PROGRAM [ARGUMENT]...

Handle `PROGRAM [ARGUMENT]...' for when PROGRAM is missing, or return an
error status if there is no known handling for PROGRAM.

  -h, --help display this help and exit
  -v, --version output version information and exit

Supported PROGRAM values:
  aclocal touch file `aclocal.m4'
  autoconf touch file `configure'
  autoheader touch file `'
  automake touch all `' files
  bison create `[ch]', if possible, from existing .[ch]
  flex create `lex.yy.c', if possible, from existing .c
  lex create `lex.yy.c', if possible, from existing .c
  makeinfo touch the output file
  yacc create `[ch]', if possible, from existing .[ch]
[asuardi@dolphin module-init-tools-0.9.3]$

Unfortunately I'm a newbie in the new module-init-tools && little time to
 dig deeper, so take this as a very simple report. Thanks,
