Use AC_PATH_TOOL instead of AC_PATH_PROGS to find `cpp` executable in XORG_PROG_RAWCPP
On Exherbo we prohibit the use of unprefixed toolchain programs like gcc, ld, pkg-config etc. in our package manager environment to detect misuses of them and avoid running into problems when cross-compiling programs. The XORG_PROG_RAWCPP macro currently tries to use `cpp` and thus triggers an error. In order to prefer the host-prefixed version of cpp the attached patch changes the macro to find the cpp program to use AC_PATH_TOOL. This will check for `$host-cpp` first and if not found for `cpp`.
Is there any problem with the patch? It's been two years and the patch is still required in the latest version released just a few days ago. Please advise.
There's no problem I can see with the patch other than it's stuck in bugzilla
and no one ever looks here.
I've sent it on to the xorg-devel mailing list for review as suggested in
That tends to have a better chance of getting attention currently.
Hopefully the upcoming move to gitlab will improve things when you can just
submit a pull request through the easy interface instead of the mailing list.
