            Bug ID: 88639
           Summary: Broken AX_C_FLOAT_WORDS_BIGENDIAN with BSD ELF tool
           Product: cairo
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: Other
                OS: FreeBSD
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: general
          Assignee: chris at chris-wilson.co.uk
          Reporter: jkim at FreeBSD.org

Recently, FreeBSD dropped GNU strings(1) in favor of BSD ELF Tool Chain.


Unfortunately, the new strings broke AX_C_FLOAT_WORDS_BIGENDIAN detection
because option '-' is not supported.  In fact, POSIX specifically says its
behavior is undefined:


I believe 'strings -a' should be used in place of 'strings -' for
build/aclocal.float.m4 to be more portable.
