Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-13 12:31:17 UTC
Rebuilding autotools through maintainer-mode is _not_ good, because it usually means you forget to add dependencies, and they'll magically use the same version as used by upstream, which might not be what the user have installed at all.

If you patch Makefile.am or configure.in/configure.ac you _have to_ use autotools.eclass and eautomake/eautoreconf. Exceptions are granted _only_ for system packages that would make it impossible to run autotools during stagebuilding.

Please fix your package.

this concerns the 2.12.0 series with extrafuncs patch, it should die as soon as arches stabilize 2.12.1-r2.
Comment 2 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2008-08-30 00:21:04 UTC
This in the ebuild looks like trouble:

        use doc || sed -e 's/\(SUBDIRS =.*\) docs$/\1/' -i "${S}"/Makefile.am

Can someone please explain why the maintainer-mode kicks in for this package, while for most of the rest patching Makefile.am/in together this does not happen?

@arm, sh, hello guys, we are still waiting for you to mark stable pygtk-2.12.1-r2 ebuild to kill this one from the tree. Thanks for considering.
