Build breaks with libtool 2.2.x
Last modified: 2008-12-04 06:36:37 EST
amanda's build breaks with libtool 2.2.x because the package's "autogen" script is being run. This kind of thing is generally unnecessary and can result in breakage of the sort that's happening now.
I see that Makefile.am and configure.in are being patched rather extensively in this package. There are a couple of alternative approaches you could take rather than calling autogen:
* Patch configure and Makefile.in and avoid running the autotools altogether.
This insulates the package from changes to Fedora's autotools. The downside
is that the resulting patches may be rather opaque and may be less resilient
to upstream changes.
* Call the autotools directly. For this package, I think that means:
This limit's the packages exposure to changes only in autoconf and automake,
rather than exposing it to changes in whatever autogen might invoke.
hello, today I pushed a new amanda 2.6.0p2 into rawhide: does this problem still occur with the new version?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Is this the same bug as 467367 ?
No... That's an apr bug.
so the rebase to 2.6.0p2 did not help anything?
Yes, this appears to be fixed now.
