Description Ondrej Dubaj 2021-08-31 08:10:32 UTC
Your package fails to build with the newest autoconf-2.71, which was part of a recent wide Fedora change. More information about Fedora autoconf Change available here: The easiest way to reproduce the problem is to execute a fedora scratch-build on your package. Thank you for cooperation!

Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2021-08-31 17:14:58 UTC
This is only partially related to autoconf 2.71: Some strange upstream code appends (outside of the automake framework) Makefile instructions during build to a Makefile include (doc/Makefile.{gdoc,gdoci}) which actually makes auto* assuming that automake needs to be re-run for the parent doc/Makefile. And that fails because autoconf 2.69 and automake 1.16 where used by upstream while Rawhide is already shipping autoconf 2.71 and 1.16.4 (and auto* dislikes any version changes except for full autoreconf etc.).
