Description sailer 1998-12-08 09:54:57 UTC
libtool.m4 contains code to call ltconfig with
the --no-reexec flag, but ltconfig doesn't grok
that option.

Simply removing the --no-reexec flag *seems* work
around the problem.

Comment 1 Jay Turner 1998-12-09 16:28:59 UTC
The ltconfig code discards the --no-reexec option, and the effect is a
no-op, so this should not be causing problems in the system.

------- Additional Comments From   12/09/98 12:01 -------
The discarding of the --no-reexec option does not seem to work
reliably. Here's how to reproduce the error:
download http://ife.ee.ethz.ch/~sailer/linux/mikmod-3.1.2-0.src.rpm
rpm -i mikmod-3.1.2-0.src.rpm
rpm -ba -vv mikmod.spec

gives:
ltconfig: unrecognized option `--no-reexec'
Try `ltconfig --help' for more information.
configure: error: libtool configure failed
make: *** [config.status] Error 1
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.76279 (%build)
