Description Martin Väth 2015-02-12 07:37:05 UTC
When trying to build icedtea-7.2.5.3 with only automake-15 installed, it dies with the error:

/var/tmp/portage/dev-java/icedtea-7.2.5.3/work/icedtea-2.5.3/missing: line 81: automake-1.14: command not found

I suppose that the make system has maintainer-mode enabled which has automake-1.14 hardcoded. Probably, it is possible to avoid the maintainer-mode or to use "eautoreconf" to avoid the artificial dependency; I have currently no time to try.
