Packages for the specific versions of GNU autotools required for GCC development.

This repository has packages for autoconf-2.69 and automake 1.15.1 (as required for GCC trunk development since 2018, i.e. gcc-9) and packages for autoconf 2.64 and automake 1.11.6 (as required for gcc-8 and gcc-7 and older release branches).

These packages install executables to /opt/autotools-gcc/bin or /opt/autotools-gcc8/binso they can be installed alongside the standard system versions without conflicting.

Installation Instructions

To enable this copr repo, run (as root):

dnf copr enable jwakely/autotools-gcc

For working on GCC 9.x and later:

dnf install automake-gcc-compat

For working on GCC 8.x and older:

dnf install automake-gcc8-compat

Optional: In my $gccsrcdir/.git/config file I define the following alias so that git regen will run the correct version of autoreconf for the branch I'm on:

[alias] regen = "!f(){ cd ${GIT_PREFIX:-.} && if git merge-base --is-ancestor f00f02a3772c24437f219fc92829bb1c893a4552 HEAD ; then /opt/autotools-gcc/bin/autoreconf; else /opt/autotools-gcc8/bin/autoreconf; fi; }; f"
