Do you think the version checking in the reconf script is strictly
How do you feel about it's removal?

Personally wouldn't mind if all the reconf/doXXX scripts
disappeared in favor of an  updated configure/make.

(ideally using more recent autoXXX scripts if
someone can figure how to do it construct them)

Thank you for your opinion. Do you have a patch?

I looked at converting it to autoconf 2.59, but this
line in configure.in is the hard part:

    [if test -n "$CONFIG_FILES"; then
      . ${avrlib_basedir}/config-ml.in

config-ml is a big shell script dealing with multilibs.
I assume multilib was a cygnus thing for building the
libraries for *all* cpus. config-ml is full of cpus
except avr. It also says:

# We have to handle being invoked by both Cygnus configure and Autoconf.

So, being avr specific, should all this ancient multilib complication
be deleted?

I found multilibs is to build multiple versions of the same library
for the same cpu, but with different parameters such as with/without
soft floating point etc. Maybe the newlib method could be used to
sort between the 'half' enhanced avrs.

The other way is to save all the effort for putting avr-libc
into newlib or something.
