Description Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2015-01-14 00:32:31 UTC
checking for QT... yes
checking for moc-qt4... no
checking for moc... moc
configure: error: --with-udev-dir must be an absolute path or 'yes' or 'no'. Instead it is '/lib/udev'

I have /bin/sh that points to dash and CONFIG_SHELL set to /bin/dash. has an "echo -n" on line 305:

if (test "$with_udev_dir" != 'yes' && echo -n "$with_udev_dir" | grep -v -q '^/'); then

Replacing it with printf '%s' seems to work (haven't tested a full build yet).

I would try to report this to upstream to for not needing to carry the patch forever ->

Patch pushed to portage. Pacho, do you want to handle the upstream bug?
