Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 16:20:17 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  smokeping 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.

Subject: smokeping: please update to autoconf 2.69 for aarch64 (ARM 64-bit) support
Hi Tobi,

Fedora is being ported to the new ARM 64-bit architecture and this 
requires the newest autoconf 2.69.  Can you please update smokeping 
(and your other software I suppose) to use autoconf 2.69?

Alternative 2) was already in use in the %build section of this package.
