Yes, the problem is that the version of libtool is too new. The buildconf script needs to copy additional files to make this work on vmgump's version of autoconf. From google, it seems that the expat project knows this as well. Since this has to be done by the project, not much we can do with the existing setup.

However, I made a copy of expat to my home directory, and saw that if the exconf-buildconfig project uses the autoreconf as it's script, then expat seems to build fine. Of course, this means that other Gump installs would need to update their version of libtool (or it will fail on them). As such, I'm going to wait for feed back from the list before jumping in and making changes to the expat metadata. The other alternative is to downgrade libtool on vmgump.

It looks like this version of autoconf wants gettext installed. I've gone ahead and installed it on vmgump (apt-get install gettext). If this doesn't fix the next cycle for expat, I'll dig deeper.

From the errors, it looks like it doesn't like the new 64bit environment. But I don't have login access to vmgump2 to poke around more.

Hi,

is anybody around here familiar enough with autoconf or whatever is
involved in the build failure to know whether we can do anything about
<http://vmgump.apache.org/gump/public/expat/expat-configure/gump_work/buildscript_expat_expat-configure.html>?

It used to work on the old vmgump (with older autotools) and still works
on helios.

Stefan
