Description Enrico Scholz 2002-01-10 19:35:31 EST
Description of Problem:

The depout-mf.patch (introduced in 1.5-2) uses the statement

| dirpart=`AS_DIRNAME("$mf")`

I don't know exactly why, but this breaks some builds. Minimal example is

$ cat >configure.ac <'EOF'

$ autoreconf 
autoreconf: `aclocal.m4' is created
configure:1988: error: possibly undefined macro: AS_DIRNAME
autoreconf: autoconf failed with exit status: 1
 at /usr/bin/autoreconf line 356

Perhaps it's an autoconf issue, but because previous automake versions (without
this patch) worked fine, I am entering it here...

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2002-01-18 02:43:31 EST
The patch was backed out in 1.5-4.
