Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 00:44:20 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  hdf appears to use an earlier version of 
autoconf, preventing its being built.  This can be fixed in of three ways (In order of preference):

1. Work with upstream to migrate the package to autoconf 2.69.

2. Rerun autoconf or autoreconf in %prep or %build prior to running 

3. Apply the patch at
which updates config.guess and config.sub to recognize aarch64.

Comment 1 Orion Poplawski 2014-02-25 03:24:14 UTC
Fixed with %configure macro change.

%configure macro solved only config.{guess,sub} problem which was very minor.

This patch adds AArch64 support so it builds and passes most of testsuite. I am waiting for upstream response.

Comment 3 Marcin Juszkiewicz 2014-06-24 16:18:51 UTC is scratch build with attached patch.
