Hi Fritz,

I looked into this briefly and the problem is that the autobuilder is deliberately running on a very old linux distro (Redhat 7.3 IIRC) this is to keep ltib backward compatible. Anyhow avahi is requiring a version of Perl in configure that is newer than that on the autobuilder. I suspect this is not a hard requirement, so I patched one platform which I think built okay. I need to take that patch and apply it to all and then the autobuild should work for the other platforms.

More concerning are the failures for gstreamer plugins. The autobuilder was off for a long time (a long story involving house re-wiring) and when it came back, the gst-* were failing. I recall that these have been updated. Eventually when get time I'll dig into this (unless someone else can reproduce a failure an knows the answer).

Regards, Stuart

I've noticed in the recent auto build notices (after my patch submissions) that Avahi is 
now lit up with "X"s across the board for many platforms.  Is this concerning?

My own platform where these patches were developed is a customized version of 
the MPC8308 ported to from a Freescale BSP.  I think Mike got these 
patches going on his own platform (also custom?) and I presume Stuart would 
have given these a quick build-test on one of the standard platforms before 
committing the patches to cvs.  Anybody else given these a try and having 
difficulty with them?

Are the error logs from the autobuilder available anywhere to provide a clue as 
to what the problem may be or how severe?

I'd hate to think that I have contributed largely broken code and would like to 
fix this if I can.

One further tweak to the nss-mdns spec file.  Localstatedir needs to
be set to /var to match localstatdir of Avahi (so nss-mdns can find
the socket file to connect to the daemon).  Also, the stock nss-mdns
makefile has it's own .la file cleanup, so Mike's .la cleanup via the
spec file is not necessary in this case.

Patch attached below -- obsoletes nss-mdns part of the previous
combined patch.
