Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 00:02:31 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  apt 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.

FWIW, there's no point "fixing" this for the apt package. What apt needs is a long, long overdue retirement from Fedora, its not usable at all in any current Fedora releases.

Hi Panu.

Thanks for your opinion. I'm not the component owner and therefore I'm only trying to get the component out of the list of failed builds. If you believe it should be retired, then talk to the owner or create a new bug report, please.
