Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-14 17:35:23 UTC
The patch in summary is touching both and, 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 ), which is something we should be avoiding as much as possible.

Please just patch and/or and rebuild autotools, unless you have very good reasons not to.

Can I have a bit of guidance here?

The dvhtool-1.0.1-debian.diff patch modifies aclocal.m4 and, but not and not configure*.

What's the problem?
