Description maillist-gdb 2014-05-15 15:46:13 UTC
the release tarballs of binutils 2.24 and gdb 7.6 were generated with an ancient autoconf version (2.64), which causes long-fixed and nasty bugs ( https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=16370 gdb bug report ) to reraise from the dead.

to prevent such breakage in the future we should test for and deny running "make dist" successfully when the detected autoconf version is < 2.69.
