i am trying to use docker to build some tools that make use of autoconf/automake with an
alpine:edge base image. When the source code provides a
configure command, everything works fine, but when this script must be generated first, using
autoreconf -vfi, docker seems to hang on :
checking that generated files are newer than configure....
It happens on both:
- docker Version 17.09.0-ce-mac35 (19611) Channel: stable a98b7c1b7c on Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6
- docker Version 17.03.1-ce, build c6d412e on Debian 8.7.
An example of Dockerfile that exhibits the problem (on my computers):
RUN apk add --no-cache --virtual .build-deps \
&& git clone https://github.com/lip6/libDDD \
&& cd libDDD \
&& autoreconf -vfi \
&& apk del .build-deps \
Any ideas of what to do? Of course, i do not want to add the
configure script to the repository, as it does not belong to me.
