Date: Thu, 18 Dec 2014 22:39:35 +0300 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: john-dev@...ts.openwall.com Subject: autoconf magnum - I think the current configure script probes for way too many things. For many of them, the build should just assume they're present. It'd fail otherwise, so no reason to probe for them. For example, why probe for strrchr() and snprintf()? I think we don't have alternate code that wouldn't use those anyway. Why probe for bzero()? We should simply consistently use memset() instead. And so on. Can we halve the number of configure tests maybe? Alexander
