patch to work around autotools problem with aarch64 none

patch to work around autotools problem with aarch64

Description of problem:
AArch64 isn't fully supported in libdsk's config/aclocal.m4 which leads to libtool problems finding shared libraries. The build succeeds, but is incomplete. The build log shows:

*** Warning: linker path does not have real file for library -lbz2.
*** I have the capability to make that library automatically link in when
*** you link to this library.  But I can only do this if you have a
*** shared version of the library, which you do not appear to have
*** because I did check the linker path looking for a file starting
*** with libbz2 but no candidates were found. (...for file magic test)
*** Warning: linker path does not have real file for library -lz.
*** I have the capability to make that library automatically link in when
*** you link to this library.  But I can only do this if you have a
*** shared version of the library, which you do not appear to have
*** because I did check the linker path looking for a file starting
*** with libz but no candidates were found. (...for file magic test)
*** The inter-library dependencies that have been dropped here will be
*** automatically added whenever a program is linked with this library
*** or is declared to -dlopen it.

I worked around this with the attached patch. Upstream libdsk has a 1.3.3 devel version which uses updated autotools and does not appear to have the problem.

I will add libdsk author to cc.
Comment 2 Christopher Meng 2013-10-18 00:07:26 EDT
Should I update it to 1.3.3?
Comment 3 Lucian Langa 2014-02-13 05:19:47 EST
Rawhide has 1.2.2 built.
Comment 4 Jaroslav Reznik 2015-03-03 11:55:07 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 06:22:02 EDT
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
bug.
