I think a lot of those were testopts.h which you fixed. Thanks.
No matter what you think of autoconf, there are 34 waf builds failing.
I haven't been through the log to see if those all fail with autoconf but
verifying 34 configurations fail in the same way on the two build systems
is too much to do IMO. Better to fix the underlying issue and get close to
zero build failures.
I'm willing to accept some failures but I also think you can't wave your
hands and say it doesn't matter. We will switch to waf but the results
will be much much closer before I agree. I will eventually be doing a
similar build of 5 because I wasn't making this kind of sweep until starting
to look at waf v autoconf.
