#37262: liblrdf: configure phase fails, "file 'm4/lt~obsolete.m4' does not exist"
 Reporter:  aronnax@…  |      Owner:  macports-tickets@…
     Type:  defect     |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal     |  Milestone:
Component:  ports      |    Version:  2.1.2
 Keywords:             |       Port:  liblrdf
 I attempted to install liblrdf as a dependency for ardour2. The configure
 phase failed with the following error message (lifted from the log, which
 is attached):

 :debug:configure Executing command line:  cd
 local_textproc_liblrdf/liblrdf/work/LRDF-0.5.0" && autoreconf --install
 :info:configure aclocal: error: aclocal: file 'm4/lt~obsolete.m4' does not
 :info:configure autoreconf: aclocal failed with exit status: 1

 can be seen in the project's GitHub browser]], the file m4/lt~obsolete.m4
 and all of the other m4/*.m4 files are symlinks to paths that do not exist
 in the MacPorts autotools installations.

 The attached patch fixes the port by deleting all of the m4/*.m4 files.
