The libtool documentation says "If the library source code has changed

Is ACC available for Windows or OS X? I'd rather keep make-version.pl
cross-platform if possible.

BTW, what version of ACC do you have installed? All of my Ubuntu
machines have 1.6 which seems to support a completely different set of
options than the ones in the "dumpabi" makefile target. The home page at
