Component:  ports          |    Version:  2.4.2
 Keywords:  lftp automake  |       Port:  lftp @4.8.3
 Attempted to build
   lftp @4.8.3
 which installed automake as a dependency. The build of lftp failed with
 the following messages:

        Error: Failed to build lftp: command execution failed

        Error: See \
        for details.

        Error: Follow https://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets to report

        Error: Processing of port lftp failed

 Inspecting file ``.../main.log'' referenced above found the following

 /build-aux/missing: line 81: automake-1.15: command not found

     :info:build WARNING: 'automake-1.15' is missing on your system.

     :info:build          You should only need it if you modified
 'Makefile.am' or

     :info:build          'configure.ac' or m4 files included by

     :info:build          The 'automake' program is part of the GNU
 Automake package:

     :info:build          <http://www.gnu.org/software/automake>

     :info:build          It also requires GNU Autoconf, GNU m4 and Perl in
 order to run:

     :info:build          <http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf>

     :info:build          <http://www.gnu.org/software/m4/>

     :info:build          <http://www.perl.org/>

     :info:build make: *** [Makefile.in] Error 1

 As I mentioned, automake was installed as a dependency. Checking shows the

     $ which automake


     $ automake --version

     automake (GNU automake) 1.16.1

 Checking whether version 1.15 was available showed the following:

     $ port info 'automake*'

         -- output shows the following:

                 automake @1.16.1 (devel)

                 automake17 @1.7.9_2 (devel)

 Checking the bug tracker found the following:

     #54523 closed defect (duplicate)

     Port "lftp" fails due to version mismatch

     Duplicate of #54491

 Following the link to #54491 shows the following:

     #54491 closed defect (fixed)

     lftp @ automake version error

 I now am finding the bug with lftp @4.8.3, so this bug seems to keep
 returning from the dead.
