Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-08-11 09:07:46 UTC
Check the attached build log; a quick glimpse over the tells me that the build system is overly complex, so finding the problem is going to be hard.

# check for maintainer mode tools
# check for maintainer/development build rules
AC_MSG_CHECKING(whether maintainer and develoment build rules are to be used)
if test x"$enable_maintainer_mode" = xyes ; then
    AC_CHECK_PROGS(PYTHON, python2.4 python)
    if test -z "$PYTHON" || $PYTHON -c "import sys; sys.exit (sys.hexversion >= 0x20401f0)" 2>/dev/null ; then
        AC_MSG_ERROR([failed to detect python (version >= 2.4.1) required for maintainer mode])
    test -z "$XMLLINT" && { AC_MSG_ERROR([failed to detect xmllint required for maintainer mode]) }

this is the snipped of code that seem to cause the problem; in particular it's the third line from the bottom; I'd suggest trying to replace the “test &&” with a full-blown if.
