Description Nico R. 2007-09-18 06:46:32 UTC
Emerging sys-libs/libieee1284-0.2.8 fails, because autotools.eclass makes it depend on autoconf-FAIL.

sys-libs/libieee1284-0.2.8 contains:

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
emerge -1 =sys-libs/libieee1284-0.2.8
Actual Results:  
emerge output (shortened):
> !!! Invalid or corrupt dependency specification: 
> invalid atom: '>=sys-devel/autoconf-FAIL'

Expected Results:  
Should emerge without problems.

I suppose autotools.eclass should be fixed. It contains:

        2.1)        _autoconf_atom="=sys-devel/autoconf-${WANT_AUTOCONF}*" ;;
        latest|2.5) _autoconf_atom=">=sys-devel/autoconf-2.61" ;;

This should probably be:

        2.1*)        _autoconf_atom="=sys-devel/autoconf-${WANT_AUTOCONF}*" ;;
        latest|2.5*) _autoconf_atom=">=sys-devel/autoconf-2.61" ;;

Or perhaps something like 2.5[0-9], etc. should be used.

The same thing happens with dev-libs/libstroke-0.5.1.
Comment 2 Nico R. 2007-09-18 13:00:57 UTC
This was caused by the following commit:

But Iā€™m not saying that that commit was wrong.

See also bug 192863.

WANT_AUTOCONF=2.58 is incorrect, not the eclass ... i'll fix libieee1284, but any other broken package needs a new bug
