Description From 2003-12-29 01:08:05
AC_PROG_LIBTOOL expands to the code wich always checks for g++/g77 and its 
In gcc-3.3 series, preprocessor tries to use the corresponding driver, which results 
to failure if g++/g77 is not installed. 
That is, after upgrading to gcc-3.3.2, both g++ and g77 are strongly 
required for every program which uses AC_PROG_LIBTOOL. 
I suppose bug in AC_PROG_LIBTOOL. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild -bs libtool-bug.spec 
2. hsh /path/to/workdir ~/RPM/SRPMS/libtool-bug-0.0.1-alt1.src.rpm

This behaviour delays upgrading gcc to 3.3.x in Sisyphus.

Fixed in libtool_1.5-1.5-alt11

This fix (libtool-1.5-alt-tagconfig-deps.patch) causes unwanted side effect - 
libtool behaviour depends on configure.ac lines order: 
with this patch applied, the AC_PROG_LIBTOOL line must go after AC_PROG_CXX and 
AC_PROG_F77, otherwise no proper tag configs will be generated. 
So I'm disabling the patch and reopening the bug. 
It is no longer block due to fix in autoconf_2.5-2.59-alt2.

In libtool_1.5-1.5.10-alt1 this g++/g77 scan failure no longer leads to an
