Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 597460
m4 won't compile from src.rpm on RHEL6 BETA
Last modified: 2013-03-07 21:10:16 EST
Description of problem:
When I try to compile m4 from source, I get an error from patches.c about S_ISDIR not being defined during linking.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild --rebuild ftp://ftp.redhat.com/redhat/rhel/beta/6/source/SRPMS/m4-1.4.13-4.1.el6.src.rpm
Errors during linking about S_ISDIR not being defined.
m4 should build
The M4 bugs mailing list acknowledges the problem and modified my suggested fix. This fix should go into RHEL6 and/or the new version should go in.
Shouldn't m4 be re-built from source against RHEL 6's libc?
