71    11. When running libtoolize from libtool-2.2.6b as part of autogen.sh, these
72        messages were output:
73    
74          Consider adding `AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR([m4])' to configure.ac and
75          rerunning libtoolize, to keep the correct libtool macros in-tree.
76          Consider adding `-I m4' to ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS in Makefile.am.
77    
78        I have done both of these things.
79    
80    12. Although pcre_dfa_exec() does not use nearly as much stack as pcre_exec()
81        most of the time, it *can* run out if it is given a pattern that contains a
82        runaway infinite recursion. I updated the discussion in the pcrestack man
83        page.
84    
85    13. Now that we have gone to the x.xx style of version numbers, the minor
86        version may start with zero. Using 08 or 09 is a bad idea because users
87        might check the value of PCRE_MINOR in their code, and 08 or 09 may be
88        interpreted as invalid octal numbers. I've updated the previous comment in
89        configure.ac, and also added a check that gives an error if 08 or 09 are
90        used.
91    
92    14. Change 8.00/11 was not quite complete: code had been accidentally omitted,
93        causing partial matching to fail when the end of the subject matched \W
94        in a UTF-8 pattern where \W was quantified with a minimum of 3.
95    
96    15. There were some discrepancies between the declarations in pcre_internal.h
97        of _pcre_is_newline(), _pcre_was_newline(), and _pcre_valid_utf8() and
98        their definitions. The declarations used "const uschar *" and the
99        definitions used USPTR. Even though USPTR is normally defined as "const
100        unsigned char *" (and uschar is typedeffed as "unsigned char"), it was
101        reported that: "This difference in casting confuses some C++ compilers, for
102        example, SunCC recognizes above declarations as different functions and
103        generates broken code for hbpcre." I have changed the declarations to use
104        USPTR.
105    
106    16. GNU libtool is named differently on some systems. The autogen.sh script now
107        tries several variants such as glibtoolize (MacOSX) and libtoolize1x
108        (FreeBSD).
