Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 00:50:01 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  kBuild 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 Sergio Basto 2014-07-27 15:56:01 UTC
From what I see in build.log 
mkdir -p /builddir/build/BUILD/kBuild/out/linux.amd64/release/bootstrap/sed
autoreconf: Entering directory `.'
autoreconf: running: autopoint --force 
autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoconf --force
autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoheader --force
autoreconf: running: automake --add-missing --copy --force-missing

also looking to kBuild/src/sed/config/ 
ll /var/lib/mock/fedora-rawhide-x86_64/root/builddir/build/BUILD/kBuild/src/sed/config/ -tr

config.guess was generated by build , so I assume this bug is fixed at least in current release , I'm closing bug , feel free to reopen it .

and please check it out if kBuild support aarch64 !
