In #882538, Helmut pointed that outguess has a configure file
generated by a missing configure.in. He considers that configure, an
interpreted script (shell), has no source code because the following
# Generated automatically using autoconf version 2.12
# Any additions from configure.in:
The script also has a notice:
# This configure script is free software; the Free Software Foundation
# gives unlimited permission to copy, distribute and modify it.
IMHO, the configure script can't be regenerated from a configure.ac or
configure.in but it can be modified to work if it is necessary. It is
similar to traditional configure file, made by hand. I don't see a
real problem here. However, Pabs agrees with Helmut here.
I still have doubts about if this situation is a DFSG violation and I
need more opinions.
Thanks a lot in advance.
