liblouisutdml fails to cross build from source. The first reason for
failing is that it uses the wrong pkg-config. Its configure.ac uses
AC_PATH_PROG to detect the wrong pkg-config and a later call to
PKG_CHECK_MODULES picks up the wrong value. PKG_CHECK_MODULES knows how
to correctly detect pkg-config, so simply removing that line fixes this
The next reason is that it checks for java headers using AC_CHECK_FILE.
That's due to using a broken, outdated, embedded copy of
ax_jni_include_dir.m4. The version in autoconf-archive in unstable is
fixed meanwhile. Please remove this copy or update and register it.
Finally, it calls help2man. There is no silver bullet for fixing
help2man issues, so let's skip that issue for now.
Please close this bug when fixing the other two issues.
