Description Chris Adams 2002-01-02 22:10:19 UTC
automake will generate a bogus Makefile.in when using lisp (the gettext
package is one example).  It puts an @ in the Makefile.in so make won't
quit on an error, but it puts it in the middle of a shell expression (so
the shell barfs on an extraneous @).  It looks like someone created lisp.am
by copying another .am file and didn't take this out.

The patch is easy (and will be attached).

Comment 2 Tom Tromey 2002-01-07 00:20:57 UTC
FYI: this bug is fixed in the CVS automake.
We hope to do a bug-fix release soon.
This release will be in the 1.5 series.
The 1.4 series has ended.
(If Red Hat is sticking with 1.4 for a while, we can
work something out; this bug is also fixed on the 1.4 branch,
but the 1.4 branch can't be released as-is.)

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2002-01-07 06:56:55 UTC
Thanks.  This already seems fixed in automake-1.5, ie automake-1.5-1.  (It was
also fixed in automake-1.4p5-3.)
