Problem with libtool and aclocal
Mon Jun 19 16:56:00 GMT 2000
I recently discovered a problem with libtool's libtool.m4 file. Basically,
after running aclocal and autoconf, if you configure with:
configure --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu --target=i686-pc-cygwin
and you ran make, you would get libtool errors:
libtool: cygpath: command not found.
The problem was that a patch was commited which set the host to the libtool
generation to the triple specified by the configure command line.
I have submitted a patch to the libtool maintainers which has been
accepted. Basically, aclocal and autoconf needs to be rerun in:
after the new libtool is built. Since patches to autogenerated files are
usually not accepted, I am asking for permission to update sourceware.
