Comment 1 Rafał Mużyło 2008-03-18 23:05:25 UTC
Now, after a bit more reading and some testing, I'm almost sure were does this problem come from.
As of version 2.2, one of the line of libtool init macro is:
This means that i.e. LT_AGE is not allowed as a variable name, unless it's either
explicitly  m4_pattern_allow'ed or is AC_SUBST'ed (which does, among others m4_pattern_allow(^$1$) ).
Comment 2 Ryan Hill (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-29 03:17:12 UTC
i'd like to wait and see how upstream fixes this.
Comment 3 luis 2008-05-01 10:41:10 UTC
I had the same error on a fresh install
