Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 15:30:02 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  mindless 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 Göran Uddeborg 2013-04-03 19:50:12 UTC
I'll try the suggestions in the order of preference.  Upstreams doesn't seem too active, but I'll give that a try first.

Comment 2 Göran Uddeborg 2013-04-12 21:44:21 UTC
Upstreams has more or less retired.  (He asked me if I wanted to take over.  I might one day, but for now.)  So I went for option 2.

That on the other hand worked without any problems.  At least for the traditional i686 and x86_64, I don't have any aarch64 to test on. :-)  Implemented in 1.0.0-8.
