build.log with mksh

After setting eselect sh set bash it builds.

I made a patch that replaces the offending tests in acinclude.m4 with alternatives that are strictly POSIX-conformant. I tested it by adjusting the ebuild so that it:

  * applies the patch in question
  * inherits the autotools eclass
  * contains a src_prepare function that calls default, followed by autoreconf

After doing this, I was able to successfully build icedtea-3.12.0 with mksh as the effective /bin/sh.

icedtea-3.13.0 is now in portage and remains broken. Same issue, same solution.
Comment 4 Andrew John Hughes 2019-08-05 20:54:10 UTC
The tests were taken from OpenJDK itself, but it looks like they force configure to be run with bash.

I've filed an upstream bug for this now:

https://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3748

and I'll try and get the patch in for 3.14.0.

In future, if response on here is slow, feel free to use the IcedTea bug database directly. I don't tend to always see Gentoo bugs.

Noted with thanks. Hopefully they will see that it's an unnecessary bashism.
