Description of problem:
I just tried running autoconf on a version of asterisk from subversion. I
received the following errors:
configure.ac:31: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.
configure:3799: error: possibly undefined macro: _AC_PATH_PROG_FEATURE_CHECK
configure:3800: error: possibly undefined macro: _AC_FEATURE_CHECK_LENGTH
It still managed to generate the configure script, but it had these macros
embedded in it, as shown by the terminating error message:
checking for a sed that does not truncate output... ./configure: line 3799:
syntax error near unexpected token `SED,'
./configure: line 3799: ` _AC_PATH_PROG_FEATURE_CHECK(SED, sed gsed,'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download subversion using
svn co http://svn.digium.com/svn/asterisk/team/oej/res_auth asterisk
Error given above.
No error and a configure script that runs without errors.
My reason for filing this bug is I was wondering what was the timetable, if any,
for upgrading autoconf? I just checked the gnu.org ftp site, and autoconf-2.61
has been out since November. I have verified that the above macros are in both
2.60 and 2.61. I understand that things might be a little complicated at the
moment with the merge and all.
autoconf-2.61 was released after FC-6 came out. There's currently no timeframe
for an update as there are no known security issues and we're quite busy with
merge stuff. Please use autoconf-2.61 from rawhide if you need this feature.
