    You should use the 'AC_CONFIG_HEADERS' macro instead.

Please note that although this package is stable and automake-1.13 is ~arch,
this is still a priority fix because ~arch users are immediately affected.

+*log4cpp-1.1 (14 Jan 2015)
+  14 Jan 2015; Sergey Popov <> +log4cpp-1.1.ebuild,
+  +files/log4cpp-1.1-automake-1.13.patch, +files/log4cpp-1.1-cmath-fix.patch:
+  Version bump, wrt bug #454712. Migrate to autotools-multilib eclass, build
+  tests only when they are requested, build static lib conditionally. Fix
+  building with Automake 1.13, wrt bug #467666

As 1.0 currently does not fail with automake 1.13 even without this fix, i am closing this bug as fixed.
