Description Felipe Alfaro Solana 2003-04-20 17:53:15 UTC

Description of problem:
I'm unable to compile krb5-1.2.8.src.rpm if autoconf-2.57-3 (the one that comes
with Red Hat Linux 9) is installed. During the compilation process, the build
stops complaining that autoconf doesn't recognize the "--localdir" and
"--macrodir" arguments.

To fix the problem, I uninstalled autoconf-2.57-3 and installed
autoconf213-2.13-6 instead, and then made a symbolic link from
/usr/bin/autoconf-2.13 to /usr/bin/autoconf. This time, I was able to recompile
the SRPM successfully.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download krb5-1.2.8-1.src from RawHide
2. Make sure autocong-2.57-3 is installed
3. rpmbuild --rebuild krb5-1.2.8-1.src.rpm

Actual Results:  Building of the source package fails complaining that autconf
doesn't support the "--localdir" or "--macrodir" command-line parameter.

Expected Results:  It should be possible to compile krb5-1.2.8-1.src.rpm using

I'm closing this pretty old bug as current Kerberos V packages are 
at upstream release 1.3. 
If anyone is still experiencing this, please consider upgrading to 
latest Kerberos V packages and open a new bug is this problem
