Description Craig Andrews gentoo-dev 2013-04-24 00:06:24 UTC
Using automake 1.13, media-tv/xbmc-9999 fails: with this error:

configure.ac:8: error: 'AM_CONFIG_HEADER': this macro is obsolete.

in the /var/tmp/portage/media-tv/xbmc-9999/work/lib/libdvd/libdvdread directory.

It appears XBMC and automake >= 1.13 do not get along.

Adding:
WANT_AUTOMAKE="1.11"
above the:
inherit eutils python-single-r1 multiprocessing autotools
line in the build works around this problem.

Reproducible: Always

errors in the 9999 ebuild belong in the upstream tracker
