ax_path_missing

Synopsis

   AX_PATH_MISSING(VARIABLE, PROG-TO-CHECK-FOR, WARNING-IF-NOT-FOUND, PATH)

Description

Check whether program PROG-TO-CHECK-FOR exists in path. If it is found, set VARIABLE to the full path of PROG-TO-CHECK-FOR, otherwise warn using the string WARNING-IF-NOT-FOUND and set VARIABLE to the full path of the Automake missing script with PROG-TO-CHECK-FOR as the command to run.

A typical use is the following:

   AX_PATH_MISSING([AUTOGEN],[autogen],[autogen seems missing ...])

This macro is the combination of AC_PATH_PROG and AX_MISSING_PROG. If you do not want to run AC_PATH_PROG, simply use AX_MISSING_PROG or AM_MISSING.
