Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 00:03:44 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  arts 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 Kevin Kofler 2013-03-23 01:07:09 UTC
arts.spec already runs:
make -f admin/Makefile.common cvs
which reruns autoconf.

Comment 2 Peter Robinson 2013-03-24 09:39:29 UTC
Running "autoreconf -vif" creates the appropriate bits in admin/config.guess (grep aarch64 admin/config.guess) but the script does not.

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2013-03-26 13:13:56 UTC
Unfortunately, autoreconf is not a good solution for KDE 3 stuff because it does not collect the files from the subdirectories and generate the global from that, only make cvs does that. And there's also some post-processing being applied to the files after running automake.

We already have a patch which adds --add-missing to the automake invocation, I think we need to also add --force-missing.

Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2013-03-26 13:40:07 UTC
This should be fixed in arts-1.5.10-22.fc20:
Does this work now? (If yes, I'll also build this for F19 and also apply the fix to kdewebdev (and all the other KDE 3 packages, for consistency).)

Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2013-04-01 17:07:13 UTC
Assuming this works now. (automake --add-missing --copy --force-missing definitely does replace config.guess and config.sub with updated versions in my tests.) Also building for F19 now to make the Alpha Freeze. Closing.
