Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-14 17:44:42 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.
Comment 1 Michele Noberasco (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-07-28 09:20:56 UTC
This package cannot easily have its autotools rebuilt, since some of its directories are missing files. Since the patches only touch Makefile.{am,in} and never, I feel that maintainer-mode badness is not worth fixing (after all ./configure will run only once), as that would involve writing the missing files...

Feel free to reopen if you think it necessary :-)
