Description Robert Bradbury 2007-02-01 17:32:46 UTC
In recent emerge build systems there are failures in emerging gst-plugins-mad and gstreamer.  The failures happen in the "configure" step of the ebuilds.  The key lines are:

gst-plugins-mad: case `(ac_space=' '; set | grep ac_space) 2>&1` in

gstreamer: for ac_var in `(set) 2>&1 | sed -n 's/^\([a-zA-Z_][a-zA-Z0-9_]*\)=.*/\1/p'`; do

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have older version (~3.1?) of bash installed...
2. emerge gst-plugins-mad
3. emerge gstreamer

Actual Results:  
Both emerges will fail in the configure step.
Runing "sh configure" by hand will fail as well.

Expected Results:  
Packages should compile cleanly.

The problem is that bash seems to have been enhanced to allow `...` output in new places in the shell language.  The packages will compile if one unmasks app-shells/bash and emerges a current bash (3.2_p9-r1) before emerging gst-plugins-mad or gstreamer.  The build dependency processing needs to be changed to allow (or force) an upgrade to bash before emerging gst-plugins-mad or gstreamer.

Which versions is this about? Also post emerge --info and the actual errors here.
