You are very kind in your words... ;)

There are actually 6 of them, not just 4, all identical!

:~/HiPE/otp$ wc `find . -name aclocal.m4`
   1905   5931  61331 ./lib/megaco/aclocal.m4
   1905   5931  61331 ./lib/wx/aclocal.m4
   1905   5931  61331 ./lib/erl_interface/aclocal.m4
   1905   5931  61331 ./lib/odbc/aclocal.m4
   1905   5931  61331 ./aclocal.m4
   1905   5931  61331 ./erts/aclocal.m4

For what's worth, I second your suggestions.

Cheers,
Kostis
