Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-13 20:22:02 UTC
Please never call autotools directly, instead use eautoreconf (or eautomake, and JUST THESE TWO) from autotools.eclass. If you have any reason why those don't work, please let me know to fix them.

Comment 1 Patrick Kursawe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-20 13:04:35 UTC
I think it was because of


checking for correct version... no
configure: error:

*** [Gentoo] sanity check failed! ***
*** libtool.m4 and have a version mismatch! ***
*** (libtool.m4 = 1.5.26, = 1.5) ***

Please run:

  libtoolize --copy --force

if appropriate, please contact the maintainer of this
package (or your distribution) for help.

make: *** [config.status] Error 1

when I remove the line you are talking about.

Since I have hardly any idea of how libtoolize works, I would be glad if you could check this problem.
Comment 2 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-21 11:42:40 UTC
Fixed this one, it's actually quite easy, you just need to run eautoreconf, once, without setting WANT_* stuff (as it works fine with latest), no libtoolize, no elibtoolize, no for statement to run it in the subdirectory (it's recursive by default).

Thank you very much!
