Source: speech-tools
Version: 1:2.5.0-4
Severity: normal
User: debian-riscv at lists.debian.org
Usertags: riscv64


We are in the process of bootstrapping a Debian port for the riscv64
architecture (https://wiki.debian.org/RISC-V).

The files config.{guess,sub} included in this package are too old to detect this

This package is using dh-autoreconf, as Debian Policy ยง4.3 recommends, to update
these automatically [1].

However, for some reason it's not working, the tool is not working well together
with the build system as implemented by this package.

    "You should make sure that the configure utility detects the correct
    architecture specification string (refer to Architecture specification
    strings for details).

    If your package includes the scripts config.sub and config.guess, you should
    arrange for the versions provided by the package autotools-dev be used
    instead (see autotools-dev documentation for details how to achieve
    that). This ensures that these files can be updated distribution-wide at
    build time when introducing new architectures."

Thanks and cheers.
