    You should simply use the 'AC_PROG_CC' macro instead.
    Also, your code should no longer depend upon 'am_cv_prog_cc_stdc',
    but upon 'ac_cv_prog_cc_stdc'.

Comment 2 Jason Mours 2013-04-25 20:30:57 UTC
Not sure if these are necessary but not included in the build logs is emerge failing with an orphaned PID:

/usr/lib64/portage/bin/ line 215: wait: 'Failed running aclocal !': not a pid or valid job spec

Patch to use the new AC_CONFIG_HEADERS function

Worked for me after inclusion in "ghostscript-gpl-9.06-patchset-1.tar.bz2".
Comment 5 James Cloos 2013-04-27 20:42:29 UTC
This bug still exists in ghostscript 9.07 and master.

I sent them a note about it:

have ijs/ check for AC_PROC_CC instead of AM_PROG_CC_STDC

Just ran into the issue in comment #1. Here's the trivial patch that got me past it. Note that I simply added a files directory and hacked the ebuild to epatch this patch, rather than get creative.
Comment 8 James Cloos 2013-04-29 23:34:49 UTC
That patch leads to calling AC_PROC_CC twice in a row.

The offending call to AM_PROG_CC_STDC simply can be deleted instead.
Comment 9 Lee Trager 2013-04-30 08:34:06 UTC
Its easier to just add this to the prep section

# AM_PROG_CC_STDC is obsolete and causes build failure with
# >=sys-devel/automake-1.13.1
sed -i -e '/AM_PROG_CC_STDC/d' ijs/ || die
Comment 10 Nikos Chantziaras 2013-04-30 11:39:45 UTC
This is still broken. What's the recommended way to deal with this? Should we mask automake-1.13?
Comment 11 2013-04-30 14:13:19 UTC
i was stuck with this bug while i upgrade gentoo.
when could this patch merge into portage?
Comment 12 Chris Smith 2013-04-30 14:25:40 UTC
I've installed several packages that don't work with automake-1.13(.1) by simply temporarily unmerging that specific version (ex: emerge -Ca =sys-devel/automake-1.13.1 - don't unmerge all versions!). The package will fall back to using a previous version, in my case automake-1.12.6. A world update will remerge it unless masked.

Comment 14 Timo Gurr (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-05-02 02:08:01 UTC
Fixed in CVS and thanks for taking care of reporting the issue upstream!
Comment 15 James Cloos 2013-05-06 23:29:17 UTC
Upstream has applied a fix, too.  Versions after gs-9.07 will not need patching.
