-V, --version
  print version number, then exit
-v, --verbose
  verbosely report processing

-f, --force
  consider all files obsolete
-o, --output=FILE
  save output in FILE (stdout is the default)
-W, --warnings=CATEGORY
  report the warnings falling in CATEGORY [syntax]

    Warning categories include:

‘cross’
  cross compilation issues
‘obsolete’
  obsolete constructs
‘syntax’
  dubious syntactic constructs
‘all’ all the warnings
‘no-CATEGORY’
  turn off the warnings on CATEGORY
‘none’ turn off all the warnings
‘error’
  warnings are error
The environment variables ‘M4’ and ‘WARNINGS’ are honored.

    Library directories:

-B, --prepend-include=DIR
  prepend directory DIR to search path
-I, --include=DIR

    Tracing:

-t, --trace=MACRO[:FORMAT]

In tracing mode, no configuration script is created. FORMAT defaults to ‘$f:$l:$n:$%’; see ‘autom4te --help’ for information about FORMAT.
