         autotools: Fix multiple repetitions of -L build flags

         Before:

           WS_LDFLAGS=' -Wl,--as-needed -L/usr/local/lib
    -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib'

         After:

           WS_LDFLAGS=' -Wl,--as-needed -L/usr/local/lib'

         Bumps autoconf required version to 2.64.


FWIW this means Wireshark master (to become 2.2) will no longer work on
RHEL/CentOS 6 (which has autoconf 2.63).  I don't seem to have an easy
way to check SLES.

 

(Just for the record) Anders' config.log shows that his SLES 11.2 system is also running autoconf 2.63.

 

I noted that too, is it possible to easily update autoconf? (RPM?) Or would that drag in all kinds of dependencies? Long term I’d like to push

my users to SLES 12.1 anyway.
