Ticket #15177 (closed defect: fixed)
ruby-1.8.6-p111+ doesn't work with autoconf-2.62
|Reported by:||joseph@…||Owned by:||pguyot@…|
When autoconf 2.62 is used, ruby doesn't build all the appropriate standard libraries. When the autoconf port is deactivated, apple's autoconf 2.58, shipped with 10.4, works fine. For example
ruby -e 'require "socket"'
This bug also applies to the standard ruby distribution, which ships with a configure script built with autoconf 2.61. Since we patch ruby's configure.in, it makes sense to fix this on our end as well.
It works just fine to use a autoconf 2.58 <= n <= 2.61, so that is one option. The other is to patch the configure.in to support autoconf 2.62. This will need to happen, but autoupdate doesn't like ruby's configure.in very much. The configure.in it generates has a bug. Patching the configure.in is beyond my abilities.
