Setup fails on Mac os high sierra.
Created by: bIgBV
I'm trying to setup redox on my machine and in the process, installing libc. After cloning the repository and running
./setup.sh all I get the following error:
Must install autoconf264 before x86_64-unknown-redox may be built
Manually installing autoconf 2.64 and changing
setup.sh to check for
autoconf instead of
autoconf264 fixed the issue for me, but it isn't a permanent fix.
The issue is due to the fact that the autoconf, automake and aclocal binaries on OSX do not have the version number after them. Running them with the --version flag seems to be the only way to get the version number.
Also, is there a hard requirement for autoconf 2.64? Becuase the build works with the latest versions of the other two tools.
