AC_REQUIRE([AC_CANONICAL_HOST]) dnl for cross-compiles
dnl We expect to see the declaration of sleep() in a header file.
dnl Older versions of mingw have a sleep() function that is an alias to
dnl _sleep() in MSVCRT. It has a different signature than POSIX sleep():
dnl it takes the number of milliseconds as argument and returns void.
dnl mingw does not declare this function.
AC_CHECK_DECLS([sleep], , , [[#include <unistd.h>]])
if test $ac_cv_have_decl_sleep != yes; then
dnl Cygwin 1.5.x has a bug where sleep can't exceed 49.7 days.
