Issue #10716 has been updated by Vit Ondruch.


Forgot to mention the actual error:

~~~
$ autoconf
$ ./configure 
./configure: line 63225: syntax error near unexpected token `;'
./configure: line 63225: `; }; then'

This is issue when building with autoconf 2.63 available in RHEL6/CentOS6

BTW I am wondering why Ruby actually enforces autoconf 2.67 and makes plenty of RHEL 6/CentOS 6 users [1] unnecessary issues, when it builds with 2.63 just fine. If there was some justification at least [2].
