... sadly, that does not work. I get the same failure with

PREFER_PKGSRC+= autoconf automake

... to make wholly sure, I added pkg-config to the list (but don't
think that really should matter).

PREFER_PKGSRC+= pkg-config autoconf automake

I don't see obvious breakage here, but obviously the build is broken.
It wasn't with 2014Q2 on another system where I needed that patch (it
was gcc-4.9.1, btw., not 4.8).

Any hints on that position? Well, of course: I remember already the
recommendation to hack the configure script directly instead. That
position comes from experiences as my current one, obviously.

OK, manually edited out the relevant pieces of the patch from old to
newly generated configure and it works now.

So, we can file it under "Never, Ever Try To Run Autotools In Pgksrc
Build!". I'm attaching the patch I currently use for cairo for
reference. You might want to include something like this, as upstream
also dropped LTO in their repo (at least I've seen mailing list posts
indicating such).

Alrighty then,


PS: Build has advanced beyond cairo now ... currently at gtk2. Time to
go home before that breaks.
