Description Andrew Lunn 2003-03-26 03:36:50 EST
The root auto configure script in 2.0b1 is broken. It assumes the packages use
version current, where as they are called v2_b1. This means it cannot find them
down in the tree. Also, host has been renamed tools/src and the approrpriate
changes have not been made in the auto configure script.

This makes a workaround for the missing synth auxilary code more difficult
Comment 1 John Dallaway 2003-03-26 04:12:51 EST
The target side configury should be able to accommodate non-'current' package  
versions. It looks like this should be trivial by using a wildcard instead of  
'current' when assigning FOUND_CONFIGURES in the configure script. Similarly,  
SUBDIRS="tools/src" rather than SUBDIRS="host" should work. To avoid the need  
for release engineering tweaks, I suggest that the top level configure looks  
for both "host" and "tools/src".  
There's an underlying problem with the use of a relative path to reference  
files in the acsupport directory from the host-side configure script. This  
causes problems when renaming "host" -> "tools/src" for releases. For eCos  
2.0b1 I simply duplicated the acsupport directory and contents to work around  
this. In the long term, it would be good to move "host" -> "tools/src" in the  
CVS repository itself.
