Failed running aclocal


So I tried installing pcmanfm and ran into problems with udev. There was a package being blocked and shadow was preventing another package from being installed. So I removed shadow to install the other package. Then I planned on re-emerging the shadow package but now cant. Now i keep receiving an error on most packages I build. I try to run emerge -uDNav world and when it gets to -> Running aclocal -I m4 --install ... aclocal fails.

I have masked the automake 1.13.1 package and re-emerged it to a previous version but no luck.

90% of what I emerge fails because of this. I cant even emerge world now.

I attached the output of emerg -av syslog-ng so you can see what I mean. I also have attached the output for emerge --info and aclocal output error log.

Oddly, libtool does not fail on aclocal. It builds properly.

Automake 1.13 is creating a lot of problems, and breaking a lot of packages in the way.

Note that you are using ~x86, unstable. So, this kind of thing, while not so usual, is something that might happen from time to time.

You have two options,

a) You check bugs.gentoo.org and see if each package that's failing for you has already an aclocal related bug open, it probably has. If not, open it and report the issue so it can get fixed.

b) You downgrade automake to 1.12, and mask 1.13.x for now, until the thing gets fixed.

I did mask auto make 1.13.x and downgraded. That's wasn't any help. I just reinstalled because I removed some packages that broke the system even further.
