Description Tom Regner 2002-05-25 03:14:13 UTC
Hi all,  
ksplash-ml doesn't compile with the new autoconf-2.5.3a, that is used by the  
build process, even if I specify WANT_AUTOCONF_2.1. the build brakes,   
after successfull completion of automake with a call to autoheader, it 
compiled fine  with previous versions (and kde-3.0.1 has no problem either) 
 cd . && autoheader error: m4_popdef: undefined macro: AC_Dest 
../autoconf/status.m4:831: AC_CONFIG_FILES is expanded from... the top level 
autoheader-2.53a: autom4te failed with exit status: 1 
 at /usr/bin/autoheader-2.53a line 163 
make: *** [] Error 1 
As I submitted the ebuild, I'll dig into it, but really don't know how far I 
Anyway, the best would be to mask it IMHO,

any news on this?
Comment 2 Tom Regner 2002-05-28 17:26:17 UTC
not really,      it compiles fine if I run     # autoheader   # make     in      /var/tmp/portage/ksplash-ml-0.94.1/work/ksplashml-0.94.1    after the build brakes     I don't undestand, how the sandbox works,   for example: I don't understand the line  ../autoconf/status.m4:831: AC_CONFIG_FILES is expanded from...  ; relative to what is this path?   I have not given up completely, but work demands a lot (just came home, it's  00.00 here :( ), so maybe leave the bug open for a while, I'll come back to it, not soon, but I will... Nice possibility to learn a bit about autoconf/make I guess   regards, tom

I just got this bug now. Can it be closed? We now have ksplash-ml- in 
portage, which seems to work ok (and doesn't need to run autoheader at all). 
Comment 5 Dan Armak (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-08-29 08:12:32 UTC
OK, AFAIK this is fixed, if not say so.
