Description Mark Huijgen 2009-06-10 11:34:25 UTC
Gconf is optional for gnome-mplayer, however without it autoconf seems to fail. Version 0.9.5 did not do an eautoreconf in the ebuild, so did not suffer from this problem and compiles fine without gconf.

Steps to reproduce:
1. make sure gconf is not installed
2. emerge media-video/gnome-mplayer-0.9.6
3. fails on autoconf due to missing macro:

>>> Preparing source in /var/tmp/portage/media-video/gnome-mplayer-0.9.6/work/gnome-mplayer-0.9.6 ...
 * Applying gnome-mplayer-0.9.6-asneeded.patch ...                                                                    [ ok ]
 * Running eautoreconf in '/var/tmp/portage/media-video/gnome-mplayer-0.9.6/work/gnome-mplayer-0.9.6' ...
 * Running aclocal ...                                                                                                [ ok ]
 * Running libtoolize --copy --force --automake ...                                                                   [ ok ]
 * Running aclocal ...                                                                                                [ ok ]
 * Running autoconf ...                                                                                               [ !! ]

Looks like upstream (of gnome-mplayer) should bundle a copy of gconf-2.m4 from gconfd's package or stop using the macro (and use only e.g. pkgconfig to check if it's around) to prevent such failure(s) in the future.
Comment 3 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2009-06-21 18:56:50 UTC
Fixed in portage, sync in an hour or so.
