Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-14 17:06:57 UTC
The patch in summary is touching both Makefile.in and Makefile.am, probably to avoid autotools rebuild.

This treatment is usually reserved for a few selected system packages that cannot have their autotool scripts rebuilt.

This _could_ cause maintainermode-driven rebuild (see http://blog.flameeyes.eu/articles/2008/06/13/maintaner-mode ), which is something we should be avoiding as much as possible.

Please just patch Makefile.am and/or configure.in/.ac and rebuild autotools, unless you have very good reasons not to.

Reassigning back to herd since Stefan has been retired as a Gentoo Developer (#27693).

Reassigning to maintainer.

Sorry to see that your report was never actioned Diego.
The problematic ebuild has now been removed from portage; I believe 1.6.2 is not affected by this flaw. If it is, I welcome reports for that version.
