The GNU Utilities for OpenServer 6.0.0 is the initial public and supported release of some open source tools for OpenServer 6.0.0. Some of these tools are a minimum requirement to port, compile and test open source applications, libraries and tools for deployment on an OpenServer 6.0.0 system using the native (C/C++) Development System.
The GNU Utilities for OpenServer 6.0.0 is the logical follow-on to:
The list includes Xorg X11 server and client, graphics runtime, KDE desktop, Apache, Perl, CUPS printing system, Samba, Mozilla Firefox browser and Thunderbird e-mail client, just to mention a few.
An earlier version of these utilities were provided to all Tec Forum 2008 attendees.
This release of the GNU Utilities is supported only on OpenServer 6.0.0 with Maintenance Pack 4 (MP4) or later installed.
Attempts to install this release on earlier OpenServer 6 releases may result in a conflict of ownership of files between this component and other components on your system.
While the contents of this GNU Utilities release are modest when compared to the Skunkware releases, it contains the key development tools necessary to port and develop open source projects with the native C and C++ compilers. It will also allow active participation in open source development projects and deployment of updated releases of those projects based on your specific schedule requirements.

Autoconf is an extensible package of m4 macros that produce shell scripts to automatically configure software source code packages for compilation on different operating systems. It is used in the build processes of many open source tools.
Two versions of autoconf have been provided. Some open source projects are still configured for autoconf version 2.13 and therefore cannot be reconfigured using a later version. Autoconf, version 2.13 and related commands and directories are suffixed with 213, i.e. /usr/gnu/bin/autoconf213.
Requirement: GNU M4
