When compiling 188.8.131.52 i get the following error. (2.9.21 used to
build fine and still does.)
CXXFLAGS=-I/temp/boost_1_35_0 ./configure --with-modules=gmysql
cd . && /bin/sh /temp/pdns-184.108.40.206/missing --run autoheader
configure.in:3: error: Autoconf version 2.58 or higher is required
aclocal.m4:7098: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE is expanded from...
configure.in:3: the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
autoheader: /usr/bin/autom4te failed with exit status: 1
make: *** [config.h.in] Error 1
Is this solvable on pdns side or is upgrading autoconf the only option?
Builds fine on 4 and 5 btw.
