Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-14 11:44:06 UTC
Please never call autotools directly, instead use eautoreconf (or eautomake, and JUST THESE TWO) from autotools.eclass. If you have any reason why those don't work, please let me know to fix them.

Comment 1 Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2008-06-14 15:23:55 UTC
Right, I know we should not be calling those (and no one really knows why it's _really_ needed, just that it has failed in the past on amd64)

But then again, I would like to tree clean this precise ebuild, which should solve the issue :)

16:16 < EvaSDK_> !rdep gtkglextmm
16:16 < jeeves> dev-cpp/gtkglextmm <- dev-python/visual
16:16 < EvaSDK_> rdep visual
16:16 < EvaSDK_> !rdep visual
16:16 < jeeves> dev-python/visual <- net-analyzer/scapy:visual

better start by stabilizing 1.2.0-r1 (and please fix the sed on to .am + eautomake, it's probably the root of borkage that cause these lines to be added :)).

Nope, the sed line is fine. Nothing gets built in there except for documentation. Rerunning eautomake for that is just a waste of time.

However, I need to review all gnome-mm ebuilds for the examples/tests stuff, so I'll look at the documentation too.
