Description Daniel Berrangé 2013-07-31 11:23:44 UTC
Description of problem:
If any mingw* builds are unlucky enough to get scheduled on ARM builders in Koji, configure typically fails with the following error

  checking build system type... Invalid configuration `armhfp-redhat-linux-gnu': machine `armhfp-redhat' not recognized

eg  this mingw-libvirt build failure

In the thread here:

It was suggested that the problem is rpm is not translating 'armhfp' to 'armv7hl'. It looks like redhat-rpm-config is responsible for setting up the default arch mappings in the rpmrc file. If i'm wrong feel free to re-assign the component or close as appropriate

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a build of 'mingw-libvirt' in Koji, on an ARM builder host

Actual results:
  checking build system type... Invalid configuration `armhfp-redhat-linux-gnu': machine `armhfp-redhat' not recognized

Expected results:
Build succeeeds

Comment 1 Dennis Gilmore 2013-07-31 13:01:36 UTC
koji uses yums basearch for noarch builds. armhfp is not a valid arch for autoconf. arm and armv* are  we should have koji use arm instead of armhfp
