Description Alexander Huemer 2012-07-02 00:06:19 UTC
When dev-lang/perl-5.16.0 is used, the execution of aclocal-1.1[12] causes:

main::scan_file() called too early to check prototype at /usr/bin/aclocal-1.11 line 643.

This is already known upstream and fixed[1].
The according commit e6184b2ce04c2cb2aab55377b0fbd615a99d62c8 from automake git should be applied to all gentoo automake-1.1[12] ebuilds until new maintenance releases come out.


Reproducible: Always

This was fixed in automake 1.12.1 (we have 1.12.6). No idea about the other automake versions... 

@base-system: do we still need this bug?

(In reply to Andreas K. Hüttel from comment #1)

we still support the latest version in each major release series, so backporting to older versions would be nice

also impacts automake-1.10
