Description Mark I Manning IV 2013-09-05 20:23:09 UTC
emerging insight results in a fatal error in automake due to cygnus style trees (what ever they are) having been deprecated and removed. error: support for Cygnus-style trees has been removed

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge insight

Actual Results:  
insight fails to build

Expected Results:  
insight should build

hope i filed this right, this is not exactly non developer friendly

Not looked at the package, but most likely that line goes something like
AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS = ... cygnus ...
likely needs 'foreign' instead.
