Description Rafael Fonseca 2015-09-07 11:51:38 UTC
Description of problem: fts fails to build on ppc64le with the following error:

checking build system type... /builddir/build/BUILD/fts-3.3.1/src/common/google-coredumper/config.guess: unable to guess system type

This script, last modified 2005-08-03, has failed to recognize
the operating system you are using. It is advised that you
download the most up to date version of the config scripts from


If the version you run (/builddir/build/BUILD/fts-3.3.1/src/common/google-coredumper/config.guess) is already up to date, please
send the following data and any information you think might be
pertinent to <config-patches@gnu.org> in order to provide the needed
information to handle your system.

config.guess timestamp = 2005-08-03

Looking into the config.guess file, you can see it fails because there is no case for ppc64le architecture, only for ppc and ppc64.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.3.1-1

How reproducible: ppc-koji build fts on ppc64le
