Failure to build binary rpm from src for autoconf


Hi,
I need help. When creating the binary rpm for autoconf from a source, the test for "autom4te" gives "FAILED (tools.at:134)", while the rest of the test give "OK". This prevents the binary from being built successfully. How can I build the binary? I am using RHEL 5.

Thank you

Well, autoconf is not really a binary, just some scripts.

The usual issue is, that the default EL5 autoconf works poorly
with some new software.
The solution : Install the Fedora 10 "autoconf-2.63-1.fc10.noarch.rpm"
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...c10.noarch.rpm
( http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...ses/10/Fedora/ )

And you will probably not be able to build a new autoconf
using the old autoconf. So please just do :
# rpm -Uvh autoconf-2.63-1.fc10.noarch.rpm
....
