      Revert the --with-install-srcdir patch · a02b1792
      Paul Eggert authored
      Also, update description of debuginfo and sources to match
      Debian and Red Hat more accurately, and move this sad tale
      from INSTALL to etc/PROBLEMS which is a better home for it.
      * Makefile.in (emacs_srcdir, install-c-src):
      * configure.ac (emacs_srcdir, --with-install-srcdir):
      * src/epaths.in (PATH_EMACS_SOURCE):
      * src/lread.c (emacs-source-directory):
      Remove.  All uses removed.
      * lisp/emacs-lisp/find-func.el (find-function-C-source):
      Do not worry about compressed C sources.
      * src/lread.c: Do not include <dosname.h>.

      Install C source code for C-h f etc. · f42d57c7
      Paul Eggert authored
      Without this change, on typical GNU/Linux distributions
      like Debian, the first button of ‘C-h f car RET’ does not work
      because the source code for ‘car’ is not installed (Bug#37527).
      Fix this by installing the (compressed) C source code alongside
      the (compressed) Lisp source code that is already installed.
      This adds about 3 MB (about 2%) to the size of the installed files
      on my platform.
      * Makefile.in (emacs_srcdir): New macro.
      (epaths-force): Substitute PATH_EMACS_SOURCE.
      (install-c-src): New rule, that installs a copy of the C source
      code if emacs_srcdir says to.
      (install-arch-indep): Depend on it.
      * configure.ac (emacs_srcdir): New var.
      Add support for --disable-install-srcdir.
      * lisp/emacs-lisp/find-func.el (find-function-C-source-directory):
      Look in emacs-source-directory first.
      (find-function-C-source): Also look for gzipped source files.
      * lisp/startup.el (normal-top-level):
      Also recode emacs-source-directory.
      * src/epaths.in (PATH_EMACS_SOURCE): New macro.
      * src/lread.c: Include dosname.h, for IS_ABSOLUTE_FILE_NAME.
      (syms_of_lread): New var emacs-source-directory.

      * etc/NEWS: Say that tarballs have a test directory.
      * make-dist (with_tests): Default to "yes".

      Modernize INSTALL a bit · dae48fae
      Paul Eggert authored
      * INSTALL: Omit filesystem space estimates.  These estimates
      were (1) wrong and (2) no longer important nowadays, as people
      have plenty of space.  Instead, start with how to get and
      unpack an Emacs tarball.  Don’t say "disk" as it’s often not
      disk nowadays.  Update URLs.

      Prefer HTTPS to FTP and HTTP in documentation · bc511a64
      Paul Eggert authored
      Most of this change is to boilerplate commentary such as license URLs.
      This change was prompted by ftp://ftp.gnu.org's going-away party,
      planned for November.  Change these FTP URLs to https://ftp.gnu.org
      instead.  Make similar changes for URLs to other organizations moving
      away from FTP.  Also, change HTTP to HTTPS for URLs to gnu.org and
      fsf.org when this works, as this will further help defend against
      man-in-the-middle attacks (for this part I omitted the MS-DOS and
      MS-Windows sources and the test tarballs to keep the workload down).
      HTTPS is not fully working to lists.gnu.org so I left those URLs alone
      for now.

      Port cleanup attribute to Oracle Studio 12.5 · 27bb4de7
      Paul Eggert authored
      * INSTALL (--with-modules): List cleanup attribute as prereq.
      * src/conf_post.h (__has_attribute_cleanup): Remove; no longer needed.
      * src/emacs-module.c (MODULE_SETJMP_1): Don’t attempt to verify
      (__has_attribute (cleanup)), as Oracle Studio 12.5 supports
      __has_attribute only inside preprocessor expressions.  The C
      compiler should check the cleanup attribute in the next line anyway.
      (module_reset_handlerlist): Remove an unnecessary ‘const’
      that causes Oracle Studio 12.5 to refuse to compile.

      Emacs 'movemail' is now a configure-time option · 9f771f64
      Paul Eggert authored
      The new configure option --with-mailutils lets the builder say
      that Emacs should assume that GNU Mailutils is installed, instead
      of continuing to build and install its own limited and insecure
      substitute for 'movemail'.
      * INSTALL, etc/NEWS, etc/PROBLEMS: Mention --with-mailutils.
      * configure.ac: Add --with-mailutils option.
      (with_mailutils): New variable.
      Do not bother configuring 'movemail' when not building it.
      Warn about issues relating to --with-mailutils.
      * doc/emacs/rmail.texi (Movemail): Mention --with-mailutils.
      (Movemail, Remote Mailboxes): Document port numbers in
      POP and IMAP URLs.
      * lib-src/Makefile.in (with_mailutils): New macro.
      (UTILITIES): Use it.

      Modernize usage of 'macOS' in doc and comments · dc152c54
      Paul Eggert authored
      Apple changed the spelling of its operating system again, to "macOS",
      effective with macOS 10.12 Sierra (2016-09-20).  Change Emacs
      documentation and comments to match this.  Stick with older OS
      spellings ("OS X", "Mac OS X") when talking about older releases where
      the older names are more correct.

      Default to 'configure --enable-silent-rules' · b995b4ae
      Paul Eggert authored
      This greatly shortens the 'make' output, making it more readable
      and useful.  For example, on my platform it shortens a
      4125-character line "gcc -std=gnu99 -c -Demacs -I. -I. -I../lib
      ... emacs.c" -- a line so long that it's hard to see what's going
      on or where the diagnostics are -- to just "CC emacs.o".
      * INSTALL: Document this.
      * configure.ac: Add AM_SILENT_RULES([yes]).
      (AM_DEFAULT_VERBOSITY): Remove now-unnecessary initialization.
      * etc/NEWS: Document this.
      Fixes: bug#19501
