Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-16 04:13:09 UTC
There are a few packages that calls elibtoolize before autoretooling. If  
elibtoolize is called and then the configure is re-generated, the configure  
patches that can be necessary (for example Gentoo/FreeBSD's patches) are being  
skipped completely.  
Please remember that if you call libtoolize --copy --force you must also  
re-call aclocal and autoconf.  
If needed, you can use eautoreconf function in autotools eclass that takes  
care of calling all the needed autotools to regenerate their support files.  
app-admin/fam/fam-2.7.0-r4.ebuild: elibtoolize called before autoretooling  
app-crypt/heimdal/heimdal-0.7.1.ebuild: elibtoolize called before  
autoretooling [kerberos]  
gnome-base/gnome-core/gnome-core-1.4.2-r1.ebuild: elibtoolize called before  
autoretooling [gnome]  
media-gfx/gphoto2/gphoto2-2.1.6.ebuild: elibtoolize called before

Heimdal is fixed now.

Also php (at least dev-lang/php-5.0) calls elibtoolize before libtoolize.

Maybe you can just use eautoreconf followed by elibtoolize, it takes care of calling aclocal before and after 
libtoolize as it's done manually right now.

dev-lang/php releases are all fixed now, thanks for pointing this out!
Best regards, CHTEKK.

fixed for gphoto2
Comment 5 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-12-16 02:59:50 UTC
I've changed all misplaced elibtoolize calls to be called after autoconf, 
libtoolize, or in general autoretooling.
