32 <para>
33 <application>Autoconf-2.13</application> is an old version of
34 <application>Autoconf</application> . This old version accepts switches
35 which are not valid in more recent versions. Now that
36 <application>firefox</application> has started to use
37 <application>python2</application> for configuring, this old version is
38 required even if configure files have not been changed.

148 <command>install -v -m644 ...</command>: the patch removes install-info
149 from the Makefile because that would install (and if necessary recreate)
150 standards.info which is an old version, so now
151 <filename>autoconf213.info</filename> has to be manually installed.
