[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#760634: lintian: add xfce4-dev-tools / xdt-autogen for updating config.{guess, sub}

Package: lintian
Version: 2.5.25
Severity: wishlist
Owner: pkg-xfce-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org


lintian has checks for “correct” dates of config.{guess,sub} in the
source package, especially for support for newer architectures.

I didn't check but I guess it drops the warning in case debian/rules use
autoreconf command or dh applet, since then the files will be updated at
build time.

Can xdt-autogen (from xfce4-dev-tools package) be added to the list of commands
dropping the warning? The command does the job of updating autotools
files (plus some Xfce specific stuff).

Thanks in advance,
Yves-Alexis Perez
