Description grog 2002-09-18 06:10:02 UTC
	When installing ports which depend on automake14, you get the
	following messages:

	===>  Extracting for mutt-1.4
	>> Checksum OK for mutt/mutt-1.4i.tar.gz.
	>> Checksum OK for mutt/patch-1.4.rr.compressed.1.gz.
	>> Checksum OK for mutt/patch-1.4.vvv.initials.gz.
	===>   mutt-1.4 depends on executable: automake14 - found
	===>   mutt-1.4 depends on executable: autoconf213 - found
	===>   mutt-1.4 depends on shared library: intl.4 - found
	===>  Patching for mutt-1.4
	===>  Applying distribution patches for mutt-1.4
	===>  Applying FreeBSD patches for mutt-1.4
	===>  Configuring for mutt-1.4
	env: automake14: No such file or directory
	*** Error code 127

	This is particularly frustrating because it's not obvious
	what's wrong: /usr/local/bin/automake is there and should be
	in the PATH.  For some reason, ktrace also doesn't trace the
	process that runs into the problem.

Fix: 

This seems to work for me, anyway.  It's possible that the
	 wrong version of perl might still cause it to crash, but it
	 works for mutt (another bug causes linux_base-6 not to
	 build).--TXSWujwxlzQSIaC03ntweedCHq0NKnKQQybhxTpwe2fqloKK

Nope. Notice two lines lower: Generated automatically ... by configure.
So whatever it has to be patched upstream in automake.in or in
configure.in itself. I'll sort it out.
