attr (1:2.4.48-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Replace gettext with autopoint in autopkgtest Depends fields.

attr (1:2.4.48-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Run «autoreconf -f -i» in autopkgtests to handle modified build system
sources due to patching, triggering regeneration of the build system,
and failing because the exact tool versions are not available.

attr (1:2.4.48-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Run upstream test suite separately from the build, so that we can ignore
just the test suite errors. This was in practice not a problem as we then
call the install target, so we'd catch errors later on, but still wrong.
* Remove now unnecessary debian/clean file.
* Fix silent and verbose builds:
- Only pass VERBOSE=1 to the check target where it is relevant.
- Pass --disable-silent-rules to configure only when terse is not present.
* Remove spurious escaped newline in «make install».
* Uniformize assignment of --build and --host options for configure.
* Reorder .PHONY entries.
* Add minimally required build dependencies to autopkgtest Depends fields.
* Rename attr-autoconf-version-check.patch to
build-require-autoconf-version.patch and improve its description fields.
