Message-ID: <> (raw)

            Bug ID: 30196
           Summary: [0.189 regression] contains Bashisms
           Product: elfutils
           Version: unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: general
          Assignee: unassigned at sourceware dot org
          Reporter: sourceware at mattwhitlock dot name
                CC: elfutils-devel at sourceware dot org
  Target Milestone: ---

Created attachment 14729

Autoconf scripts are supposed to be written in POSIX-compatible shell language.
elfutils commits 0ffe2874e75d48cb88936e119e5284ff2bf664d9 and
3fa98a6f29b0f370e32549ead7eb897c839af980 introduced Bashisms to
that cause errors when /bin/sh is not Bash.

Example error when /bin/sh is Dash:

./configure: 8748: test: xyes: unexpected operator

The cause of the error is the use of a non-existent == operator in expressions
passed to the 'test' built-in command. POSIX shell specifies only an = operator
for testing string equality.

Please make the corrections indicated in the attached patch.
