Hi Peter,

Thanks for the report.

I can only elicit a hand full of failures from the recently migrated =
legacy test, both with the opensuse-13.1 live GNOME CD, andr a minimally =
configure opensuse:13.1 based docker container.  In both cases I have a =
shell with `CONFIG_SITE=3D/usr/share/site/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu` =
(where that file starts with some blurb about setting libdir to =
/usr/lib64 unless otherwise set by the user).  I didn't install fortran, =
g++ or gcj, so all those tests were skipped.

CONFIG_SITE might be necessary for some users to get otherwise failing =
test cases to work, so I'm reluctant to stamp on it so heavily.  =
Conversely, it's a bit optimistic of the tests I see failing to pass =
only --prefix to configure, and assume that binaries will all land in =
$prefix/bin and libraries in $prefix/lib, so I've pushed a patch that =
forces all test configures to set bindir=3D$prefix/bin and =
libdir=3D$prefix/lib.  With this patch, all (C compiler) tests pass for =
me in a fresh opensuse:13.1 container.

Let me know if you have any further problems with this issue.

Cheers,

Hi,

a few days ago I was building libtool-2.4.3 for x86_64-suse-linux and had to
put CONFIG_SITE=/dev/null into the environment in order to avoid a very
large number of failed test.  The reason was that the x86_64-suse-linux site
config file changes the default for libdir from ${exec_prefix}/lib into
${exec_prefix}/lib64.

I'd suggest to put CONFIG_SITE=/dev/null into the tests environment to avoid
this and similar problems.

Regards
Peter Breitenlohner <peb@HIDDEN>
