Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 00:40:24 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  grass 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.

The 3rd suggestion has been added to relbranch6 (upcoming 6.4.3 release)
some months ago:

Hence already fixed upstream (even a 6.4.3RC should contain it already):

Thank you for the update!

Comment 3 markusN 2013-06-09 16:45:43 UTC
Just FYI:  config.guess, config.sub, configure boosted again to
latest version (will be part of the upcoming GRASS GIS 6.4.3
release and later versions):

GRASS is using autoconf-2.13 but we'll now regularly update
the "config.guess" + "config.sub" files to generate an up-to-date
"configure" script. I have added that to our "howto_release.txt"

At this time the fact that we use autoconf-2.13 instead of
autoconf-2.69 becomes irrelevant. Thanks for having pointed
out the problem.

The new stable 6.4.3 version has now been published including these fixes:

Grass 6.4.3 is in F19 and up.
