Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 00:19:43 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  ding-libs 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 
configure.

3. Apply the patch at http://ausil.fedorapeople.org/aarch64/ding-libs/ding-libs-aarch64.patch
which updates config.guess and config.sub to recognize aarch64.

Attached is a patch that runs autoreconf in the specfile. I will also send a similar patch upstream.

The previous patch uncovered a configure.ac warning. This iteration also includes a patch to configure.ac to silent these warnings.

Built for rawhide. I can't build the f19 version at the moment, even though I issue build from the f19 branch, I'm getting:
Could not execute build: ding-libs-0.2.91-14.fc20 has already been built

(Note the fc20 tag)
