Description Dennis Gilmore 2013-03-23 16:26:01 UTC
Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in 
autoconf 2.69.  thunderbird-lightning 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.

This patch adds use of system copy of libffi (like firefox and thunderbird do). Also updates all config.{sub,guess} copies to get package built on AArch64
