Description of problem:
The SPEC file for the GTK GL area package purposely excluded the ACLOCAL .m4
files that came with GTK GL area. These files are a welcome addition to anybody
doing development work using "autoconf" to configure their software. The SPEC
file changes included in this bug report makes the ACLOCAL .m4 script part of
the GTK GL area package again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install GTK GL area package.
2. Run "aclocal" on a configure.in file that uses the AM_PATH_GTKGL macro.
Actual Results: "aclocal" found an error when it was unable to find the
AM_PATH_GTKGL macro among its library of .m4 files.
Expected Results: "aclocal" should have run to completion with no errors.
After checking the changelog I was unable to determine whether there was a good
reason to exclude the .m4 macros from the package (incompatibility with another
package?). So I saw no reason not to fix the package SPEC file.
Created attachment 94787 [details]
Patch for the GTK GL Area 1.2.2-16 spec file.
This patch include the changes necessary to roll the ACLOCAL .m4 macros back
into the GTK GL area package.
GTK GL area is no longer included in Fedora, nor does there seem to be
a lot of upstream activity around this package any more. Furthermore,
maintenance of Red Hat Linux 9 has been handed off to the Fedora
