Description Dennis Schridde 2012-12-24 00:35:04 UTC
checking for thin_check... no
configure: error: thin_check not found in path /usr/lib64/portage/bin/ebuild-helpers:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:...

It should not check for thin_check, when crosscompiling.

Reproducible: Always

Either it should DEPEND on sys-block/thin-provisioning-tools or the check should be removed (if it's pointless anyway).

Fix thin tool path check

This issue is not specific to cross compiling but crops up any time you build lvm2 with an alternate $ROOT value and sys-block/thin-provisioning-tools is not installed on the host system.

Instead of letting the configure script scan $PATH for the tools just set the path explicitly. Both 103 and 104 build now with this fix.

Patched versions committed to my overlay:

Shouldn't the sys-block/thin-provisioning-tools package be pulled in as a dependency by the 'thin' use flag? I would also suggest that thin should not be selected by default.
