             Summary: Support Fedora 25: use pkg-config instead of obsolete M4 macros
                 Key: ZOOKEEPER-2654
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-2654
             Project: ZooKeeper
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: build
            Reporter: Olaf Flebbe
            Assignee: Olaf Flebbe


While compiling Bigtop on Fedora 25 we found that there is an issue with the autoconf detection
of cppunit: See BIGTOP-2642 for error.

Some background regarding the issue can be found here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1311694

The fedora maintainers encourage use of pkg-config rather crufty *.m4 autoconf magic by only
supplying pkg-config files *.pc.

The patch is surprisingly easy but adds the additional requirement for pkg-config which should
be available on every well maintained system for ages.

Please see for me proposed patch. Works for me for Fedora 25, Centos 6, MacOSX with HomeBrew.
