Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 00:46:38 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  id3lib 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.

drop libtool-autofoo gunk, use autoreconf

In the mingw-id3lib package, the large libtool-autofoo patch came up during the review, and was replaced with a much smaller patch to enable the use of autoreconf with a recent autotools setup. The attached patch makes the same change to the id3lib package, and fixes this bug as a side-effect.
