Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 00:51:05 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  krb5 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 Nalin Dahyabhai 2013-03-26 20:42:46 UTC
The autoconf 2.69 package in F19 doesn't include a config.guess or config.sub for it to pick up, and we already use option 2, so I don't think option 1's going to change anything.  Based on traffic on the devel list, I'm guessing we either need to rope in a newer automake and grab the files from there, or to start packaging the configs directly.

Upstream uses a pretty recent autoconf (2.68 as of krb5 1.11.1), so I guess carrying option 3 until a subsequent upstream release picks up a sufficiently-recent config.guess/config.sub combination is the way to go, then.

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2013-03-26 21:11:47 UTC
Should be sorted in krb5-1.11.1-5.fc20 and later.  Please reopen if you find that this is not the case.
