Re: m4 for Solaris: What is the fix?


I used the patches from I just put them in the patches directory, then I did a bmake makedistinfo.

I attatched the patches, because there are some tab/whitespace combinations which took me some time to figure out.

yesterday I bootstrapped pkgsrc HEAD on a Solaris 10 8/07 using
/usr/sfw/bin/gcc in 32 bit mode.
The bootstrap was fine and I went on compiling lyx-xforms. As a
dependency bmake tried to compile m4, but failed with an error related
to a bug in Solaris' math.h. This was discussed back in april:

The thread lists several patches and even a fixed version of m4
Question is: How can this be applied to the m4 package in pkgsrc?
Applying the patches from one of the mails doesn't work for me, patch
(and even gpatch from pkgsrc) think that these are reverse patches,
rejecting the changes.
Using the tarball would mean to create a new package. So for all you
Solaris people out there: What did you do?

Any help would be greatly apreciated.
