Description Navid Zamani 2009-05-16 17:17:35 UTC
When emerging capisuite-0.4.5-r6, econf fails, and the last message of it is 

checking for sfftobmp version... no
configure: error: sfftobmp not found

But sfftobmp-3.1.1 is installed and working. (Tested by me.)

My guess is, that CAPISuite, because of its age, requires an older version of sfftobmp.

(An alternative solution would be, to provide a drop-in-replacement for CAPISuite, using Asterisk. This is, because CAPISuite is very old and development for it stopped long ago, from what I can tell.)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -C media-gfx/sfftobmp # to make sure, sffbmp-3.1.1 is the only version installed.
2. emerge =media-gfx/sfftobmp-3.1.1
3. emerge =net-dialup/capisuite-0.4.5-r6

Actual Results:  
checking for sfftobmp version... no
configure: error: sfftobmp not found

That fixed it. Thanks. :)

I just found out, that CapiSuite did not re-compile, despite sffobmp-3.1.2 being installed.
Weirdly, after just (apparently pointlessly) re-compiling sfftobmp itself, it CapiSuite *did* re-compile again.

Veery wierd. But I had to add this here. I hope I can soon retire capisuite… If only asterisk weren’t so hugely gigantically over-engineered as an answering machine. ;)
