           Summary: Gcc-4.3.1 reveals bug in old Autoconf
           Product: Codex
           Version: test grimoire
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: devel
        AssignedTo: sm-grimoire-bugs at lists.ibiblio.org
        ReportedBy: fredrik.carlstrom at tele2.se

A few packages made with Autoconf 1.59 or 1.61 will try to find a working
mktime for about 60 seconds and then give up during compilation. This can be
fixed either by running autoreconf with Autoconf 1.62 installed, or by updating
the configure file with the following patches (from

<http://bugs.gentoo.org/attachment.cgi?id=151883> for Autoconf 2.59
<http://bugs.gentoo.org/attachment.cgi?id=151885> for Autoconf 2.61

The following packages in the test grimoire are being affected (there might be

bash-3.2 (2.59)
cabextract-1.2  (2.59)
emacs-22.2 (2.61)
gawk-3.1.6 (2.61)
gwenhywfar-3.3.5 (2.61)
