Yes, I should have asked at the time to put it in 20. I had newly
started working on Hadoop when I did that patch and didn't know the
proper JIRA protocol at the time. Will do so now. Like I said in my
mail, I'm not trying to block a release. I'm just reporting the errors
I ran into trying to use the release candidate - if the rest of the
community or PMC thinks it's not worth rolling a new one, I'll leave
it up to them.

Regardless, it has nothing to do with whether it's "my patch" - I
think it reflects poorly on the project when the releases fail to
build on a common system configuration.

automake should not be a build time requirement for released artifacts
in pretty much any sane project. autotools "make dist" targets always
include a configure script, which means automake was already run by
the developer. After applying the patches mentioned above that fix
missing header includes, I built just fine on my box that has no

After applying the patches I mentioned, the ant command quoted above
succeeded in building libhdfs just fine:
build/c++/Linux-amd64-64/lib/libhdfs.so.0.0.0: ELF 64-bit LSB shared
object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, not stripped

If others think these are blockers, I'm happy to roll a new candidate
tarball later this week once they've been pushed into branch-20.
Although I don't have a binding vote in the release process, I am
pretty sure the ASF policies are fine with anyone rolling an rc and
calling a vote. If no one else thinks these patches are worth stalling
for, that's fine too.
