Description Cal 2008-06-04 14:01:04 PDT
On Linux RHEL 4, with bash version 3.00 doltlibtool breaks due to string concatenation on line 11.  (bash 3.0 doesn't support the += operator)

workaround patch

This patch works, but bypasses the doltcompile script...  which I believe breaks the compile process later on.

I'm seeing the same on maemo with a version 2.X of bash. I worked around it by commenting the DOLT line in configure.ac.

I landed a fix for this in mono SVN a while back but it's not in WebKit yet.


Can you test this and make sure it doesn't hurt performance so we can get it in WebKit?

Fix landed in r38011. It'd be nice if you could comment here how well the fix works for you. Cheers
