Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 00:45:20 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  httpd 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 D. Marlin 2013-06-27 19:41:35 UTC
I tried building httpd-2.4.4-6.fc19 using autoconf-2.69-10.fc19.noarch and adding 'autoreconf -i -f', but config.sub and config.guess in the build directory do not get replaced.  I do see the following warning when running autoreconf:

aclocal: warning: autoconf input should be named '', not ''
acinclude.m4:7: warning: underquoted definition of APACHE_HELP_STRING
acinclude.m4:7:   run info Automake 'Extending aclocal'
acinclude.m4:7:   or see

If I remove the old config.sub and config.guess from the build directory and run autoreconf they do not get created/copied.

Option #3, applying the patch, does appear to work.
