Build of developer/libtool fails with autoconf error
The OI source is from 2018. Consequently, there may be a new version of the source, or some of the bugs may have already been fixed. Though the changes have been developed on SPARC hardware, they might correct bugs in some x86 packages. In any case, they should not damage other x86 packages.
During the build of developer/libtool, I got this error:
gnulib/gnulib-tool: *** minimum supported autoconf version is 2.63. Try adding AC_PREREQ([2.63]) to your configure.ac. gnulib/gnulib-tool: *** Stop. /dpool.../oi-userland-apr/make-rules/prep.mk:41: recipe for target '.../oi-userland/components/developer/libtool/libtool-2.4.6/.prep' failed gmake: *** [.../oi-userland/components/developer/libtool/libtool-2.4.6/.prep] Error 1
My autoconf is version 2.69. The test for minimum didn't work. The solution is to fix the breakage in configure.ac . A new patch, called patches/002-configure.ac.patch accomplishes this change.
