Description Miloslav Trmac 2002-03-11 12:17:14 EST
Description of problem:
dejagnu can't find the config.guess file distributed with dejagnu in
/usr/libexec. Looking in runtest.exp, it is looking for the file in
$libdir $libdir/libexec $libdir/.. $execpath $srcdir $srcdir/.. $srcdir/../..
So there is some choice where to put it, putting it in /usr/share/dejagnu solves
the problem.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a minimal automake project using dejagnu without its own config.guess
(yeah, a "trivial step").

Additional info:
cd /usr/share/dejagnu; ln -s /usr/libexec/config.guess config.guess
works around the problem.

Comment 2 Miloslav Trmac 2002-04-21 10:04:05 EDT
OK, here is a patch (to the specfile and replacing an included Makefile patch) that
also handles #60996.

The config.guess is placed to /usr/share/dejagnu/libexec, as that is where the
Makefile apparently tried to place it (but was overriden by the RPM build system).

The documentation files overview.{ps,pdf} are included. Maybe there are some
BuildPrereq's missing, I added only the obvious ones and those packages I had to
install to be able to build dejagnu.

I hope this can get to 7.3 yet...

Same behaviour in 8.0
Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2002-11-27 12:50:06 EST
Should be fixed in dejagnu-1.4.2-7 in rawhide.
