Description Robert Scheck 2004-02-24 20:49:00 EST
Description of problem:
Well, I tried a rebuild of expect without autoconf-213, I used to
try that autoconf >= 2.52 and it works fine - I got no errors.

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

Actual results & expected results:
Maybe you could test my experiment, too and if it works good in
your eyes, remove please the old autoconf-213 from the spec file :)
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2004-02-25 05:33:47 EST
Ok, thanks.  Should get into next build.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2004-08-05 00:09:26 EDT
Should get fixed in expect-5.42.1-1.
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2004-08-05 03:58:06 EDT
On second thoughts I had to revert this change, because a slightly
broken configure file is generated, which breaks the build on some
