aclocal error handling fix
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:01 EDT
aclocal keeps any package that installs .m4 macros from working properly
if I put build it in two separate prefixes, one of which is the
standard aclocal build location.
This is because even if I pass "-I /prefix/share/aclocal" when using
aclocal in "/prefix", aclocal has a fatal error if it finds duplicate
macros. There is no reason this error should be fatal.
Will attach Owen's patch for this.
Created attachment 31539 [details]
don't consider duplicate macros a fatal error
FYI: the aclocal that comes with automake 1.5 no longer
generates this error. There were too many complaints and
problems associated with it, so we took it out.
Perfect, 1.5 is in rawhide so I guess the bug is closed.
