Description Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 1999-04-26 13:18:28 UTC
The mutt-0.95.4us-4.src.rpm package in Starbuck
and RawHide is not compiled with color support
(one of the main features of mutt). The --with-color
should be added to ./configure's command line.

The second minor bug is that the spec file does not
build mutt with $RPM_OPT_FLAGS. It seems that mutt's
./configure does not set these flags from the environment,
so it should be added on make's command line as well.

The pseudo-patch to the spec file follows:

 CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS -I/usr/include/slang" LDFLAGS=-s
./configure \
-	--prefix=/usr --with-sharedir=/etc --sysconfdir=/etc
--enable-pop --enable-imap \
+	--prefix=/usr --with-sharedir=/etc --sysconfdir=/etc
--enable-pop \
+	--enable-imap --with-color \
 	--disable-warnings --with-slang --disable-domain
+make CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS -I/usr/include/slang"
 make prefix=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr
sharedir=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT/etc \

Color support is working fine here. What sort of terminal
are you using? (also, AFAICT, --with-color isn't even an
option to configure) I'll add the OPT_FLAGS stuff in the next
build here...

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-04-26 17:00:59 UTC
fixed in mutt-0.95.5us-2. If you manage to make it
not rerun auto*, the CFLAGS that are passed to configure
get passed through OK.
