Thomas, All,

On 2018-11-20 17:38 +0100, Thomas Petazzoni spake thusly:
> With per-package folder support enable, the build of apr-util fails,
> for two reasons:
> 
>  - The rules.mk file is generated by the 'apr' package, and then
>    copied into the 'apr-util' source directory. This is done by the
>    'apr-util' build process. Unfortunately, this rules.mk file has a
>    number of hardcoded paths: to the compiler and to the libtool

I know we do not have a strong policy on this, but can you use '@' as
the separator, instead of the comma ',' as we are sure that the build
directory will not contain any '@':

So, you're patching a file in STAGING_DIR in a post-configure hook?

Also, PER_PACKAGE_DIR does yet exist in master (or next, for that
matters), so this patch will have to leave in your branch for a little
while still, I'm afraid.. :-/
