Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) 2008-06-14 16:23:54 UTC
The patch in summary is touching both Makefile.in and Makefile.am, 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 http://blog.flameeyes.eu/articles/2008/06/13/maintaner-mode ), which is something we should be avoiding as much as possible. Please just patch Makefile.am and/or configure.in/.ac 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.
