Description Orion Poplawski 2005-12-21 23:44:28 UTC
Description of problem:

The _AC_PATH_X_DIRECT macro looks for X11/Intrinsic.h, which no longer appears
to be shipped by xorg-x11-proto-devel and thus not a good choice for finding the
X11 headers.  Perhaps X11/Xlib.h?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
autoconf-2.59-5.1

This was pointed out in the Debian Bug Tracking System:
  http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=327655

and a patch was applied upstream:
  http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-autoconf/2005-09/msg00024.html


Comment 2 Karsten Hopp 2006-02-06 10:40:05 UTC
fixed in autoconf-2.59-6

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2006-02-07 11:35:26 UTC
pkgconfig should be used to detect the presence of all of the X libraries,
SDK, font-utils directories, and various other things.  When in doubt,
assume there's a pkgconfig file or variable that does the job. ;o)
