armel package building
If this is the wrong list for armel, please help me out with information for the correct list subscription information.
We are trying to build various packages for armel. For now, lets use xaos as an example. The package is available in binary, we would like to add VFP and/or SIMD support to the binary to quantify the performance increase without building a much larger app. We have see errors during dpkg-buildpackage when m4 is invoked:
rmdir src/lib || true
ln -sf /usr/share/misc/config.sub
ln -sf /usr/share/misc/config.guess
/usr/bin/m4:configure.in:966: Warning: excess arguments to builtin `m4_define' ignored
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
make: *** [build-stamp] Error 1
dpkg-buildpackage: failure: debian/rules build gave error exit status 2
Failed to dpkg-buildpackage while processing package xaos
The autom4te/m4 tool fails on other builds as well (xpdf as an example).
Is there a fix or does anyone have suggestions?
