Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-14 16:23:54 UTC
The patch in summary is touching both and, probably to avoid autotools rebuild.

This treatment is usually reserved for a few selected system packages that cannot have their autotool scripts rebuilt.

This _could_ cause maintainermode-driven rebuild (see ), which is something we should be avoiding as much as possible.

Please just patch and/or and rebuild autotools, unless you have very good reasons not to.

version 0.2 is really ancient and not working on todays stable at all should be asap replaced in stable by 0.4.2 version.
