RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Sandro Bonazzola 2019-10-09 13:07:32 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1757854 +++

This bug was initially created as a copy of Bug #1716384

I am copying this bug because: automake-1.16.1-6.el8.noarch is affected as well

despite it has been fixed in Fedora 29

Description of problem:
In projects using automake for handling python packages "make uninstall" fails due to a bug in am__pep3147_tweak
More info on the issue can be found in http://gnu-automake.7480.n7.nabble.com/bug-31222-automake-1-16-1-am-pep3147-tweak-bug-td22937.html#a23017

Fixing patch has been already merged upstream: http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/automake.git/commit/?id=a348d830659fffd2cfc42994524783b07e69b4b5

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

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
reproduced while working on ovirt-hosted-engine-setup:

1. git clone git://gerrit.ovirt.org/ovirt-hosted-engine-setup
2. autoreconf -ivf
3. ./configure
4. make uninstall  (or make distcheck, which calls make uninstall)

Actual results:

Expected results:
automake doesn't fail
