Description Douglas K. Fischer 2002-11-14 14:44:26 EST
Description of problem:

The version of h2ph included with perl < 5.8.0 incorrectly converts glibc header files that 
include versioned elements such as "__GNUC_PREREQ (2,8)".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): perl < 5.8.0

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:

1.With perl < 5.8.0 execute h2ph against /usr/include/sys/cdefs.h or any other header that 
includes such a versioned element as described above.

Additional info:

This bug is corrected by the Perl team in 5.8.0 and requires utils/h2ph.PL to be patched 
(patch attached). This effects any version of Red Hat Linux running perl < 5.8.0

Comment 2 Douglas K. Fischer 2002-11-14 14:47:22 EST
The attached patch is against perl 5.005_03; however, 5.6.0 and 5.6.1 are likewise 
affected and the same patch should apply against those versions as well.
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2005-09-11 07:00:05 EDT
Closing because 7.2 is not a supported product.
