Bogus m4 host requirement in CLFS-2.0

Reported by: alexander@… Owned by: clfs-commits@…
Priority: major Milestone: CLFS Sysroot 1.0.0
Component: BOOK Version: CLFS Sysroot 1.0.0
Keywords: hostdep Cc:


To reproduce: install Debian Etch, then run there "apt-get install gawk build-essential". Gawk is for iana-etc. Then try building CLFS-2.0 from there. The build will fail on Bison because of missing m4.

However, m4 is only a run-time requirement for bison, so some pre-seeding of config.cache should happen to avoid this host dependency.

Forget it. m4 is required for autoconf, so it is indeed a host requirement.
