Description Bob's Your Uncle 2013-05-06 12:36:55 UTC
Since a week or so ago, I've been unable to cleanly emerge -e @world.  I was hoping this would be noticed by others and resolved but as of today it is still the case.

I can complete an emerge -e @world by using --resume --skipfirst a number of times, each time such a package is encountered.

The first one in my particular installation to hit this happens to be libspf2.  Here are the details:

 * Messages for package mail-filter/libspf2-1.2.9-r3:

    You should use the 'AC_CONFIG_HEADERS' macro instead.

Sorry, I was a bit too fast in duping this bug...

Let's rename it and make it block the tracker bug instead...

Fixed in 1.2.10.
