Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 00:47:41 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  insight 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 Patrick Monnerat 2013-05-07 14:01:03 UTC
Autoreconf is already called for this package (7.4.50-7.20120403cvs).

In addition, I'm not sure this architecture will be properly supported by this program.

Since I do not have access to dev+test environment for this platform (and not much time and interest in it, I have to admit), I suggest you submit patches that do not break compatibility with the primary architectures.
Please confirm or close bug. Thanks.

Comment 2 Dennis Gilmore 2014-06-23 15:29:15 UTC
detection was not perfect. the patches would not have broken primary arches if autoreconf is already called it is sufficient.

Comment 3 Peter Robinson 2014-06-24 10:25:48 UTC
This is still and issue:

checking for cos in -lm... yes
*** BFD does not support target aarch64-redhat-linux-gnu.
*** Look in bfd/config.bfd for supported targets.
Makefile:2386: recipe for target 'configure-bfd' failed
make[1]: Leaving directory '/builddir/build/BUILD/insight-7.4.50'
make[1]: *** [configure-bfd] Error 1

Comment 4 Patrick Monnerat 2014-08-28 12:37:58 UTC
A new snapshot has been packaged. Currently in rawhide anf F21-testing.
Please recheck and comment. Thanks.
