We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 8053610. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check build-systems/autotools/libtool.

Visibility: warning

The referenced file seems to be from a libtool version older than 1.5.2-2. This might lead to build errors on some newer architectures not known to this libtool.

Please ask your upstream maintainer to re-libtoolize the package or do it yourself if there is no active upstream. You will also need to run Autoconf to regenerate the configure script. Usually it is best to do this during the build by depending on autoconf, libtool, and automake if it is used, and then running:

autoreconf -i --force

before running configure. Depending on how old the package is, this may require additional modifications to configure.ac or configure.in or other work. If you do this during the build, determine which files it will add or update and be sure to remove those files in the clean target.

If you have fixed architecture-specific issues with minimal patches, rather than updating libtool, and verified that it builds correctly, please override this tag. Lintian will not be able to verify that.

The following 56 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 67 times (in any Lintian version).
