Description Robert Scheck 2004-02-25 01:49:00 UTC
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 10:33:47 UTC
Ok, thanks.  Should get into next build.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2004-08-05 04:09:26 UTC
Should get fixed in expect-5.42.1-1.

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2004-08-05 07:58:06 UTC
On second thoughts I had to revert this change, because a slightly
broken configure file is generated, which breaks the build on some

configure: running /bin/sh './configure' --prefix=/usr 
'--prefix=/usr' '--exec-prefix=/usr' '--bindir=/usr/bin'
'--sbindir=/usr/sbin' '--sysconfdir=/etc' '--datadir=/usr/share'
