Re: [platform-testers] new snapshot available: autoconf-2.72c

I'm done walking through the Fedora rebuilds, I get the following failures due to largefile.m4 which breaks with autoconf:

ImageMagick 1:
emacs 1:28.2
grub2 2.06
gzip 1.12
libidn 1.41
libloc 0.9.16
make 4.4
parted 3.5
pspp 1.6.2
rcs 5.10.1

Indirectly: 'fatresize' (1.1.0) has a bug in its configuration file, which leads to a build failure with largefile support enabled.

Besides that, I didn't see anything critical.

On top of that, few failures due to malformed configuration files (some being already fixed upstream): krb5, am-utils

I need to have a closer look at 'kguitar', but there is likely a problem in the file too:
./configure: line 27629: syntax error near unexpected token `fi'
./configure: line 27629: `fi'

I was able to work around the EGREP_TRADITIONAL issue by reordering
macros. The issue is conditional code blocks which mean
EGREP_TRADITIONAL was not set in some configure option combinations
leading to obtuse failures.

Our testing so far shows the following three sets of issues.

Macro ordering issues with EGREP_TRADITIONAL being unset:

apr 1.7.2
libarchive 3.6.2

Ship with an older gnulib largefile.m4 which breaks with autoconf

parted 3.5
man-db 2.11.2
libpipeline 1.5.7
gzip 1.12
findutils 4.9.0
bison 3.8.2
gettext 0.21.1
coreutils 9.1
wget 1.21.3

On x32 were seeing two recipes which configure "ok" but fail at compile

gpgme 1.18.0
mpg123 1.31.2

Now that things are roughly building, we should get some better
automated runtime testing results in a few hours.
