Description Debarshi Ray 2007-03-01 19:01:18 UTC
Description of problem:

Any project using Automake 1.9.x distributes build tools that will use
non-thread-safe 'mkdir -p'. Automake 1.10 avoids build failures caused by this
when users use 'make -j2'.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Automake 1.9.6.

Additional info:

Automake 1.10 needs Autoconf 2.60 or later. .

Here is a feature request for Autoconf 2.61.

Comment 1 Karsten Hopp 2007-03-02 12:42:02 UTC
Automake-1.10 broke quite a few builds when it replaced automake-1.9.* in our 
As you seem to be familiar with the autofoo stuff, you should be able to 
rebuild the FC7(rawhide) package on your FC-6 system and cope with the 
resulting build problems. 
But I won't release a automake-1.10 for either FC-5 (bug #229281) or FC-6 as
not everyone is able to fix the resulting problems.
