Description Evaldo Gardenali 2009-08-26 17:46:20 UTC
Description of problem:
semi-hardcoded db_incdir="$DBDIR/include" should be better handled for --with-db-dir and --with-db-inc instead of the current checks

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
389-ds-base 1.2.2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install db with include directory set to prefix/include/db4
2. ./configure --with-db=prefix --with-db-inc=prefix/include/db4
Actual results:
Aborted configure script

Expected results:
Configure script finished successfully and include directory correctly set on Makefiles

Additional info:
WARNING: EXTREMELY UGLY PATCH BELOW THIS POINT! This was just coded to test the validity of the bug and allow me to work on other stuff while this gets fixed upstream.
