[bug#46564] [PATCH core-updates]: Use autoconf-wrapper instead of autoconf
Tue, 16 Feb 2021 19:10:17 +0100
This patch replaces autoconf with autoconf-wrapped in the native-inputs
almost everywhere (except for some packages in
gnu/packages/autotools.scm). As this would cause many rebuilds, this
patch targets the "core-updates" branch and not "master".
A wine package has autoconf in the inputs instead of native-inputs,
I wonder if that's intentional or a bug? I left that package untouched
Why this change?
* consistency / reducing confusion: some packages use autoconf, some use
autoconf-wrapper, and there's no (to me) obvious reason why two variants
of autoconf should be used.
* <whatever pro's nckx had in mind on #guix>
* some progress towards booting without /bin/sh
Scenario I have in mind (untested):
1. boot a system that doesn't have /bin/sh
2. decide to hack on guix (run git clone ...., cd $REPO)
3. guix environment guix
4. sh ./bootstrap (calls autoreconf -vfi)
5. ./configure --localstatedir=/var
6. more stuff
Without this patch, step (5.) will fail without this patch because
the generated ./configure script refers to /bin/sh, which doesn't
That said, there are some #!/bin/sh shebangs in the source code,
so there are some problems in (6.).
* ‘make dist’ will produce unusable tarballs
when in an environment from ‘guix environment PACKAGE’.
This should now be replaced with ‘guix environment PACKAGE --ad-hoc
