[postgis-devel] install-sh

Every time I run ./autogen.sh the "install-sh" file, which is
found in the repository, gets re-written. The most notable
change is:

 -scriptversion=2011-01-19.21; # UTC
 +scriptversion=2011-11-20.07; # UTC

So I must have something newer than whoever committed the file
in the repository had.

A couple of questions arise:

 1) Should that file really be in the repository ?
    We require to run ./autogen.sh anyway right after getting a copy of the
    codebase from the SVN repository, so it would be recreated locally
    According to r9062 (Feb 2012), the file was re-added in the repository
    (after removing it at r9061) to support libtool < 2.0
    Current debian stable ships libtool version 2.4.2:
    https://packages.debian.org/it/wheezy/libtool
    Should we re-remove it ?

 2) Does it start a commit war to commit the new version, if we have to
    keep the file ? Regina on IRC already confirmed she gets the new
    version too. Does anyone else have experience of running ./autogen.sh
    NOT changing "install-sh" file ?
