Description Bill Crawford 2001-12-07 20:51:38 EST
Patch follows.  It's probably not the "right" fix but it builds.  The
new-autoconf-generated ./configure needs some files adding, which doesn't
happen right if automake /autoconf are run before aclocal, for reasons I'm
not really interested in right now :o)

Right now it looks like we're going to give up on automake 1.5 and revert to
1.4, because 100+ packages are failing similarly. :-/ Though in this case the
patch was a simple "aclocal" which is encouraging.

I'll keep the bug open until we figure out what to do.
Comment 3 Bill Crawford 2001-12-07 21:42:52 EST
Reverting is quite tempting, I spent a week or two downgrading so I could build
control-center and a couple of other things.  I'm not sure whether I'd rather
have the pain now or later (and you guys have to make that call too).

FWIW I would expect most packages to get fixed upstream (slowly) and anything
that's built from a dist source rather than a CVS snapshot should (hopefully)
not be dependent on what are supposed to be maintainer-only tools, anyway.

You may even be able to fix them all by twiddling the %configure macro in
/usr/lib/rpm/macros (I had a stab at this, but I'm not used to hacking around in
there and all the %_percentSignUnderscoreSomething macros were confusing me :o)

Oh, and thanks for "GNOME Hide" btw, the newer stuff looks "prettier" and a lot
of apps "feel" a bit faster.  Some of that might be down to the 2.4.16 kernel,
but ...

automake mess approximately cleaned up now.
