Re: Various tools update request



I would like to add:

- cvs
An old version gets installed, and overwrites updated versions
cvs 1.11.17 stable has been released

I request that Apple updates some of the tools distributed with OS X/Darwin and Xcode

- bison
An old version gets installed.
Bison 2.0 has been released
<ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/bison/bison-2.0.tar.gz>

- sed
FreeBSD sed gets installed, but it is crippled (doesn't recognize regular expressions)
GNU sed is preferred
<ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/sed/>


- flex
An old version of flex gets installed.
Please note that flex is now on sourceforge (previously on gnu ftp servers)
<http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=72099>


- help2man
Unfortunately, this tool is not installed with Xcode or OS X/Darwin
(it can be configured with --enable-nls=no to prevent build problems)
<ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/help2man/help2man-1.35.1.tar.gz>

- configure problems
There is a bug in Mac OS X that causes problems when configuring many software packages (see e.g.<http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-coreutils/2004-08/ msg00039.html>). As a result of this bug, the coreutils command "uname -p" reports "unknown". This confuses config.guess.
