Description Alexander I.Grafov 2012-01-05 23:32:34 UTC
Build grub-0.97 with automake >= 1.11.2 failed with error due to more strict rules in latest automake version:

`pkglibdir' is not a legitimate directory for `DATA'

As workaround I reinstalled automake 1.11.1 and successfully build grub with it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge grub
2. Failed with errors
3. # cat /var/tmp/portage/sys-boot/grub-0.97-r10/temp/automake.out
***** automake *****
***** PWD: /var/tmp/portage/sys-boot/grub-0.97-r10/work/grub-0.97
***** automake --add-missing --copy

stage1/ `pkglibdir' is not a legitimate directory for `DATA'
stage2/ `pkglibdir' is not a legitimate directory for `DATA'

Actual Results:  
Grub build failed.

Expected Results:  
Grub successfully installed.

I can confirm the problem. I wasted an hour thinking it was a gcc problem. Downgrading in my chrooted environment, I hope that downgrading automake won't break anything.
