Description (last modified by jpflori)

Valgrind configure script complains about glibc version 2.15 (which is shipped e.g. with Ubuntu 12.04).

The usual solution is to treat this version as the previous one: see commit r12323 in the valgrind svn, or tickets on different distribution bug tracker.

Furthermore, the scripts fails with recent automake version. This is commit r12396.

An updated spkg including these two commits on top of 3.7.0 is available at

After applying the diff of the above commit, one has to rebuild the configure scripts with (which is available in the svn, not in the usual tarballs). This basically calls auto* stuff, but the current input *.am files are incompatible with the current automake tool... See r12396 in valgrind svn.

Here comes a slightly updated spkg:

I've applied the two mentioned patches and rerun to regenerate the build system files. The package installs and seems functional with my Sage installation.

Another solution whould be to properly package a recent valgrind svn version, although I'd prefer to use this light solution and wait for a proper stable release to make a real update to valgrind. Feel free to disagree and rant here.
