po/Makefile.in.in: wrong mkinstalldirs setting
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Release: 1.2.5rc2

Environment

i586-pc-linux-gnu

Description

  • po/Makefile.in: Wrong MKINSTALLDIRS setting, apparently due to an outdated definition of AM_MKINSTALLDIRS in aclocal.m4 which is not aware of the fact that newer automakes do not use mkinstalldirs any longer. See also PR 315.

How To Repeat

make install DESTDIR=/tmp/somenewdir

Fix

Maybe automake -f -a -c works. If not, set mkinstalldirs = ${INSTALL} -d in po/Makefile.in.in (see attached patch)
