Description R P Herrold 1999-05-06 13:50:04 UTC
The new m4 package build does not 'provide' an 'acceptible
'm4' for "rpm -ba specfile" rebuilds:
[root@new ERRORS]# tail autofs.errors
+ /bin/chmod -Rf a+rX,g-w,o-w .
+ echo Patch #0:
+ patch -p1 -b --suffix .rh -s
+ exit 0
+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ cd autofs-3.1.3
+ autoconf
Autoconf requires GNU m4 1.1 or later
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.88794 (%build)
[root@new ERRORS]# rpm -q --queryformat
"%{name}\t${provide}\n" m4
[root@new ERRORS]# rpm -qi m4

This problem has nothing to do with m4. And autofs builds perfectly
on my Red Hat 6.0 sparc system.

You will need to look at autoconf to find out what it is complaining
about so that you can find out what is wrong on you system
