Description Tim Waugh 2002-12-12 12:10:38 UTC
Description of Problem:
A configure.in script, which worked fine in 2.53, is now giving shell errors
when run against autoconf-2.57.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
autoconf-2.57-1

How Reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget http:://cyberelk.net/tim/data/patchutils/stable/patchutils-0.2.17.tar.bz2
2. tar jxf patchutils-0.2.17-tar.bz2
3. cd patchutils-0.2.17
4. autoconf
5. ./configure

Actual Results:
[...]
config.status: executing depfiles commands
./configure: eval: line 1: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `"'
./configure: eval: line 2: syntax error: unexpected end of file
./configure: eval: line 1: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `"'
./configure: eval: line 2: syntax error: unexpected end of file


Expected Results:
No error messages.

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2002-12-16 09:00:17 UTC
Works fine with autoconf-2.56 too.  Looks like a potential
new autoconf-2.57 bug.  I'll ask about it upstream.

If there isn't a simple fix, I'll probably revert to 2.56 for
now.

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2002-12-16 13:37:03 UTC
Oh, wait, I just found this in configure.in:

AC_SUBST(AC_LIBOBJ)

That can't be right.  I took it out and now it works.  Sorry.
