Description morozov 2002-05-10 19:13:35 MSD
As I described in <a href="http://www.altlinux.ru/pipermail/sisyphus/2002-May/010817.html">http://www.altlinux.ru/pipermail/sisyphus/2002-May/010817.html</a>, 
update-alternatives looses slave autom4te link for autoconf_2.5 package. Probably this happens because autoconf_2.13 which acts as another (and primary) alternative for autoconf doesn\'t contain autom4te at all...

Well, probably the simplest solution is to make autom4te the \'real\' link not a slave alternative. But this doesn\'t solve the problem only its symptoms

This bug doesn't apply to new alternatives(8), does it? 
Comment 2 inger@altlinux.org 2005-10-20 14:14:14 MSD
так может прикрыть эту багу?
Comment 3 Dmitry V. Levin 2005-10-20 15:23:07 MSD
Нет смысла исправлять этот старый пакет.
