Description Matthew Turnbull 2010-09-06 01:52:14 UTC
I have found that when building xfce4-session-4.7.0 with consolekit enabled and policykit disabled, the configure script results in consolekit disabled and policykit enabled.

After poking around in the, I found 2 problems:

1) There's a typo in the policykit test ("x$ac_cv_enable_polkit" = !"xyes" should be "x$ac_cv_enable_polkit" != "xyes").

2) The AC_ARG_ENABLE macros and following tests use a custom variable name, which is undefined when the configure flag is present.

Reproducible: Always

Patch looks good to me, can you please open a bug at too and link the bug in the URL field here?

Upstream bug has been filed.
Comment 4 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2010-09-06 17:26:42 UTC
Actually, none of these are required at build-time at all... But simply detected from the dbus service at runtime. There's really no reason to disable any of them far as I can see.

But of course this bug should get fixed, so thanks for opening the upstream ticket!

I'll look at xfce4-session-4.7.1 again if it's worth to bring back any of these USE flags. Thanks a lot again.

restored the USE flags now for 4.7.3 since upstream took your patch, thanks again.

Fixed in tree by 4.8.x releases
