Subject: [hwloc-devel] RHEL 5/6 SRPM

Jirka --

Question for you. In making the hwloc 1.1rc tarball, I updated the GNU Autotools that hwloc is using. It didn't occur to me until after the fact that this might be problematic for the RPM %configure macro that ships in RHEL5 and RHEL6 -- see this Open MPI ticket for details:

I've been trying to engage the Red Hat Open MPI SRPM maintainer on this issue (Jay Fenlanson), but I haven't been able to elicit much of a reply.

Hwloc doesn't ship an SRPM, but the same issue will occur because it's a what-version-of-autoconf-is-used-to-bootstrap-the-tarball issue. Do you have any advice on what to do? It would be somewhat surprising if Open MPI and/or hwloc are the only packages that have upgraded to Autoconf 2.68.
