Description Nathan Owen 2001-08-03 20:50:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.6 [en] (X11; U; SunOS 5.6 sun4u)

Description of problem:
When building from CVS configure complains about arguments to test during
the check for the GNU extentions to glob.

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ./autogen.sh
	

Actual Results:  ...
checking for ftok... yes
checking for glob... yes
checking for GNU extensions to glob... ./configure: test: =: unary operator
expected
checking for python 1.5.2... yes
checking for doxygen... /usr/bin/doxygen
...

Expected Results:  ...
checking for ftok... yes
checking for glob... yes
checking for GNU extensions to glob... yes
checking for python 1.5.2... yes
checking for doxygen... /usr/bin/doxygen
...

Additional info:

I am attaching a patch that quotes the relevant tests and reverses the
logic in the cache check (I think that was the reason that $rpm_cv_glob_ext
was slipping through without assigned a value)

FIxed in next checkin, should be in rpm-4.0.3-0.86.
Thanks for the patch.
