Subject: make-dfsg: autoconf update for arm64 building
Date: Thu, 04 Oct 2012 16:39:55 +0100
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: make-dfsg
Version: 3.81
Severity: wishlist
Tags: upstream patch

This package needs autoconf updates (to config.guess and config.sub)
to build for 64-bit arm. The arm64 port is stalled until this package
is updated.
                                                                                                                                                         
Support for aarch64 has been added to autotools config.guess and
config.sub in autotools 20120210.1

For upstream running autoreconf against autotools-dev 20120210.1 or
later will fix the autoconf part.

For the Debian package, if you wanted to keep this up to date
automatically in the future (generally a good idea) then adding
something like this to your distclean target would be effective: -test
-r /usr/share/misc/config.sub && cp -f /usr/share/misc/config.sub
config.sub -test -r /usr/share/misc/config.guess && cp -f
/usr/share/misc/config.guess config.guess (You could instead just make
those files links.) along with a build-dependency on autotools-dev
 
Please pass this bug report to upstream (I hope I have CC:ed the right
person in this report)

Subject: reuse this issue for the more general solution to use dh-autoreconf
Date: Tue, 21 Jan 2014 11:43:09 +0000
Control: retitle -1 make-dfsg: run dh-autoreconf to update config.{sub,guess} and {libtool,aclocal}.m4

Reusing this report for the more general solution to also update
the libtool.m4 and/or aclocal.m4 files, needed for the port mentioned
in bug #726404.

See https://wiki.debian.org/qa.debian.org/FTBFS for a guide how to
address these.

Please ignore this email if the libtool.m4/aclocal.m4 update is not
needed, and updating the config.{guess,sub} files is sufficient.
