Description Priit Laes (IRC: plaes) 2013-03-02 13:18:40 UTC
Starting with webkit-gtk+-1.11.90, `eautoreconf` is failing in the `gtkdocize` phase, because required macro GTK_DOC_CHECK is not located inside the file anymore and has been moved into Source/autotools/FindDependencies.m4 file.

The project's `` uses following autoreconf command to initialize the autotools stack from clean git checkout:

autoreconf --verbose --install -I Source/autotools $ACLOCAL_FLAGS|| exit $?

and this doesn't seem to be calling gtkdocize at all. Therefore it should be possible to disable this step somehow.

So, use AT_M4DIR="Source/autotools" eautoreconf

We already did that before, but now it breaks like this:

 * Running eautoreconf in '/home/tmp/portage/net-libs/webkit-gtk-1.11.90-r300/work/webkitgtk-1.11.90' ...
 * Running gtkdocize --copy ...                                                                          [ !! ]

 * Failed Running gtkdocize !

And error from gtkdocize is following:
***** gtkdocize *****
***** PWD: /home/tmp/portage/net-libs/webkit-gtk-1.11.90-r300/work/webkitgtk-1.11.90
***** gtkdocize --copy

gtkdocize: GTK_DOC_CHECK not called in
