Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 00:42:10 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  gtkglextmm 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 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2013-05-19 22:35:04 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 2 Miro Hrončok 2013-05-19 23:24:44 UTC
1. Latest upstream release is from 2006, so I don't even try this one

2. Can you please give me a hand with this? Because simply calling autoreconf ends with:

./configure: line 16548: syntax error near unexpected token `as_fn_error'
./configure: line 16548: `AL_PROG_GNU_M4(as_fn_error $? "SUN m4 does not work for building gtkmm.'

And calling autoconf doesn't update config.guess or config.sub at all.

I can apply your patch, but solving 2. seems as a better aproach.

Comment 4 Dennis Gilmore 2014-06-23 15:32:09 UTC its built on aarch64 already
