Description Enrico Scholz 2001-11-13 19:38:53 UTC
Description of Problem:

"rpm --rebuild eel-1.0.2-1.src.rpm" fails with current autotools.
"%define __libtoolize true" somewhere in the .spec-file and omitting
the "automake;autoconf" will be a quick hack; but the build-process
must be fixed in another way...

Problems are caused by providing old and incompatible macros in
aclocal.m4. Usually this can be fixed by calling `aclocal', but
there are some macros (AM_PATH_GNOME, AM_GNOME_GETTEXT) which are
not available (perhaps there should be a BuildReq: on package
providing these).


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

eel-1.0.2-1


How Reproducible:

everytime

1. rpm --rebuild eel-1.0.2-1.src.rpm

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2001-11-13 20:58:25 UTC
GNOME is not currently intended to build with the 8.0 build tools,
I'll fix all of it at once at some point, once the overall GNOME direction for
8.0 is clearer.
