Description of problem:
In redhat 9, autoconf 2.57-3 is provided. This causes kdevelop to not be able to
build a project. Kdevelop only works with autoconf-2.53. I dont know if this is
a bug in kdevelop or autoconf.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.create a new project using the wizard
3.The project will fail the autoconf step
Actual Results: The autoconf step fails with a messages "Undefined Macro: AC_Dest"
If I uninstall autoconf, and install the one from redhat 8.0 (autoconf 2.53-8),
the same procedure works fine.
Expected Results: the configure script should have been automatically
generated, and kdevelop should be able to build the project.
This happens with more programs using the KDE autoconf/automake
"hack set". I haven't been able to find the case though.
autoconf 2.57 gives this:
configure.in:131: error: m4_popdef: undefined macro: AC_Dest
autoconf/status.m4:844: AC_CONFIG_FILES is expanded from...
configure.in:131: the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
autoconf 2.53 is working correctly.
This is apparently some bug in the KDE macro set; upgrading to
latest kapptemplate solved the problem for me.
Ok, thanks. I'll close this for now then.
If there is still a problem, please reopen.
