Hi,

on https://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/manual
I find many references to 'AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIRS'.
For example, on
https://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/manual/html_node/LT_005fINIT.html
and
https://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/manual/html_node/Invoking-libtoolize.html#Invoking-libtoolize

However, that macro doesn't exist. It's called
AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR - without an S at the end.

Or does it? Grepping the source code of autoconf, automake and libtool,
I find MANY MANY references to both:

Probably ok:
$ find /usr/src/autotools -type f -exec grep -Hn 'AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR[^S]' {} \; | wc --lines
2600

but,
$ find /usr/src/autotools -type f -exec grep -Hn 'AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIRS' {} \; | wc --lines
2429

Oops?

Greetings,
--
