Configure fails with:
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for CHECK... no
configure: error: Package requirements (check >= 0.9.4) were not met:
No package 'check' found
after installing dev-libs/check configures and compile fine.
I also have this bug. I can also confirm that installing dev-libs/check fixes the problem.
I too can confirm this bug. For several hours I attempted to update sys-apps/kbd-2.0.0 which came into the emerge queue this morning. I struggled to find a solution with it failing with the following error message:
Exiting on signal 2
* Messages for package sys-apps/kbd-2.0.0:
* ERROR: sys-apps/kbd-2.0.0::gentoo failed (configure phase):
* econf failed
* Call stack:
* ebuild.sh, line 93: Called src_configure
* environment, line 2163: Called econf '--enable-nls' '--enable-vlock'
* phase-helpers.sh, line 577: Called die
* The specific snippet of code:
* die "econf failed"
I came across this report a few minutes ago and installed dev-libs/check. Now sys-apps/kbd-2.0.0 builds and installs with no problems.
Only tests need dev-libs/check:
# grep CHECK **/Makefile.am
Makefile.am:AM_DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS = \
tests/Makefile.am:AM_CFLAGS = $(CHECK_CFLAGS)
tests/Makefile.am:LDADD = $(top_builddir)/src/libkeymap/libkeymap.la $(CHECK_LIBS)
