Description Tim Waugh 2004-01-29 13:02:54 UTC
Description of problem:
The version of gettext in rawhide is incompatible with the version of
automake we have.  The Makefile.in.in wants to use mkinstalldirs which
no longer exists, for example.  Perhaps it's fixed upstream?

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Grab http://cyberelk.net/tim/data/eggcups/eggcups-0.0.4.tar.bz2
2. ./bootstrap && ./configure && make distcheck on FC1+updates
3. Try again on rawhide

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2004-01-30 10:09:31 UTC
Discussed on fedora-devel-list:


Solution will be to create automake17 package.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2004-02-02 01:12:23 UTC
Yes. gettext-0.14.1 still requires mkinstalldirs, so upgrading
won't actually solve this problem, but probably wouldn't do any


The solution is just to make the bootstrap script copy mkinstalldirs
into the source tree as needed.  The gettext maintainer recommends
either using autopoint or cp for this when using Automake 1.8.,
whereas Automake 1.7 does this for one.

[IMHO bootstrap should be run on the clean cvs check out before it
 is tar.gz'ed up, ie the tarball should include the mkinstalldirs
 file, but perhaps I'm old-fashioned.]

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2004-02-02 09:42:04 UTC
Automake-1.8 certainly did *not* run autopoint for me in the case of
eggcups -- I'm using AM_GLIB_GNU_GETTEXT there though.  I have now
modified the bootstrap script to run autopoint.

Of course eggcups was tarballed using './bootstrap; ./configure; make
distcheck' as always -- but I had to do it on a Fedora Core 1+updates
machine for 0.0.4.

Comment 4 Leon Ho 2004-02-03 03:34:53 UTC
Anyway, I have rebuilt gettext to 0.14.1 on fc2-head.

Tim, do you happy with the solution which create the automake17 pkg? 

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2004-02-03 09:48:24 UTC
Yes.  I think automake17 will be needed sooner or later anyway.

Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2004-02-05 01:23:30 UTC
Yep, because of 


automake17 is going to be added anyway.

Comment 7 Leon Ho 2004-04-01 06:06:16 UTC
Closing now.
