Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-01-20 17:56:12 UTC

You're receiving this canned (template-based) bug report because I found a problem with a package during my tinderbox run.

The package in question is running automake (and most likely other autotools) during compile phase by maintainer-mode. You can see in my blog post in the URL field why that's a problem, and how to address the issue, but in general, you don't want maintainer-mode rebuild during compile phase, especially since it can cause multiple run of econf.

The causes of maintainer-mode rebuild are various, but most likely it's because of a patch that changes or and don't rebuild autotools properly. The way to fix this is almost always to inherit autotools eclass and run eautomake/eautoreconf (as needed; eautoconf should only be used when automake is not involved, which is not the case here) during src_unpack phase.

I don't see "maintainer" mentioned in the log.  Seems like it works fine to me.  Reopen with more specific information.

maintainer-mode does not say "maintainer", you have to look for calls to "missing --run":

cd . && /bin/sh /var/tmp/portage/games-engines/kwest-1.1.1/work/kwest/admin/missing --run aclocal-1.9 

(check my blog post in URL for details)
