Last modified: 2016-02-05 07:30:35 EST
Description of problem:
When running libtoolize, fails as:
libtoolize: putting auxiliary files in '.'.
libtoolize: copying file './ltmain.sh'
/usr/bin/libtoolize: eval: line 3772: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `"'
/usr/bin/libtoolize: eval: line 3773: syntax error: unexpected end of file
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
should be done without any errors
Hm, okay. tracked this down. it happens when Makefile.am has:
ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS = \
if it is one liner, works fine. I think it worked before. dunno what version it is. at least on f22.
Thanks for the report, reproduced. It probably did not work correctly before
either (the ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS did not parse '-I' option correctly). Previously
libtoolize just did not complain. So as a workaround, please specify only
As there is AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR[S] in autoconf, the ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS should be
less needed in future. It is still needed nowadays, but it is not much useful
to hack on it right now. So please let me close this as WONTFIX with
workaround discussed before -- kee ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS on single line. It is
already documented in auto(re)conf's manual :
If you want autoreconf to pass flags that are not listed here on to
aclocal, set ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS in your Makefile.am. Due to a limitation in
the Autoconf implementation these flags currently must be set on a
single line in Makefile.am, without any backslash-newlines.
