Can't rebuild automake16 package, fails two tests

Expected results:
Working rebuild of automake16.
Comment 1 Karsten Hopp 2006-07-19 07:14:24 EDT
It works for me:

PASS: depacl2.test
PASS: depcomp.test
PASS: depcomp2.test
PASS: depdist.test
PASS: depend.test
PASS: man.test
PASS: man2.test
PASS: mclean.test
PASS: mdate.test
Can you please run 'make -C tests check TESTS=man2.test' and 
'make -C tests check TESTS=depcomp2.test' and check the contents of
tests/testSubDir for any errors ?
Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2006-07-19 15:10:46 EDT
I looked into the .test files and saw, that autoconf is used. But I don't know 
whether this the problem is, because e.g. openssh, apr, apr-util and httpd had 
problems with autoconf-2.60-3.1. So did you use 2.60 or an earlier version?
Comment 3 Karsten Hopp 2006-07-20 10:41:50 EDT
2.60 was a mistake and shouldn't have gotten in rawhide. It slipped in during the
mass rebuild. Please downgrade to 2.59 and try again.
Comment 4 Robert Scheck 2006-07-22 21:15:18 EDT
Very strange thing...when using autoconf 2.59 for rebuilding the automake16
package, I'm getting this error:

> FAIL: lex5.test

Nevertheless, the focus should be on the original two failures of this bug
report, because autoconf 2.60 will appear in Rawhide after FC6 is released 
anyway, right?
Comment 5 Karsten Hopp 2007-03-06 08:47:02 EST
automake16-1.6.3-9 has been built for rawhide with autoconf-2.61
I think this can be closed as the checks are still enabled and I didn't get a
build failure

Yepp, it's okay.
