Description Keith Amidon 2013-04-28 14:54:53 UTC
Trying to get a Linux-based packet radio station up I tried to build ax25-tools and got a build error due to an incorrect version of automake being used during autoreconf.  The aclocal output said:

***** aclocal *****
***** PWD: /tmp/portage/media-radio/ax25-tools-0.0.10_rc2-r1/work/ax25-tools-0.0.10-rc2
***** aclocal error: 'AM_CONFIG_HEADER': this macro is obsolete.
    You should use the 'AC_CONFIG_HEADERS' macro instead.
/usr/share/aclocal-1.13/obsolete-err.m4:12: AM_CONFIG_HEADER is expanded from... the top level
autom4te-2.69: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
aclocal-1.13: error: echo failed with exit status: 1

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build media-radio/ax25-tools-0.0.10_rc2-r1

Actual Results:  
Build fails

Expected Results:  
Build completes

I made the following change to the ebuild and it completed successfully:
