Description Nico R. 2007-09-18 14:00:00 UTC
The following ebuild files have a WANT_AUTOCONF setting that is not going to work. Please review and fix them.

Typo, should be WANT_AUTOCONF=latest:


Wrong version specification, should be WANT_AUTOCONF=2.5:

(handled in bug 192892)

dev-embedded/uisp/uisp-20050103.ebuild:       export WANT_AUTOCONF=2.57 WANT_AUTOMAKE=1.7

(Commented out, so this will not trigger a bug at the moment, but it is invalid anyway.)

Wrong version specification, details unknown. Either this should be changed to WANT_AUTOCONF=2.5 or to WANT_AUTOCONF=latest, or maybe, *maybe*, autotools.eclass needs to be adapted to allow WANT_AUTOCONF=2.6[1]. (Since I am not a maintainer of the following packages, I do not know if WANT_AUTOCONF was set to these values for a specific reason.)



Wrong version specification, no idea what this should be or how it should be handled. Package maintainers/testers should review/test the use of WANT_AUTOCONF here. It seems to me that WANT_AUTOMAKE might have been meant instead.

I am said that my new bug #192942 may be dup of this; if it's the case, maint should consider my report as a complement of infos and logs.

by the by, jumbo bugs suck ... proper procedure is to make one tracker bug and then file individual bugs for each package assigned to the appropriate maintainer
Comment 9 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2007-09-18 22:58:55 UTC
app-editors/emacs{,-cvs} fixed.

Please see the bugs blocking this bug for individual packages and their ebuild file issues!
Comment 11 Nico R. 2007-09-19 07:50:35 UTC
Individual bugs have been created for all ebuilds mentioned in comment 0 which have not yet been fixed. This bug depends on all those individual bugs.
