Date Thu, 22 Dec 2016 17:48:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-2654?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15770646#comment-15770646

Olaf Flebbe commented on ZOOKEEPER-2654:

One additinal benefit of this patch is that one does not need to have cppunit installed when
regenerating the autoconf files.

> 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.
