Description Koop Mast (kwm) 2015-09-05 18:59:13 UTC
gnome-todo doesn't configure on any systems with a POSIX shell, like FreeBSD.
This is due to use of a bashism in the m4/ax_compiler_flags_cflags.m4 file. This issue has been fixed in autoconf-archive upstream [1]. Can this file be updated or maybe better, depend on the version the OS ships?

Comment 1 Georges Basile Stavracas Neto 2015-10-19 16:00:41 UTC
Is this bug still valid? GNOME To Do doesn't store ax_compiler_flags_cflags.m4 in it's filetree, and copies from the host system's.
Comment 2 Ting-Wei Lan 2016-03-09 19:35:47 UTC
I think it is no longer valid now, but gnome-todo release tarballs before 3.18.1 do have this problem.
Comment 3 Ting-Wei Lan 2017-04-10 10:25:53 UTC
FreeBSD uses gnome-todo 3.18.1, which has the problem fixed. I think we can close this bug now.
