lilmike reported by IRC that:
So I've got a really strange issue. I'm trying to run mediagoblin on arch linux, and running ./bootstrap.sh works fine, but upon running configure I get checking for python3... python3 ./configure: line 1934: syntax error near unexpected token `newline' ./configure: line 1934: ` ''' This has been happening even before the new release, it's just so strange
Ben suspects this is related to the autoconf version as has seen the same in Guix. Specifying autoconf2.69 in Guix fixes the issue.
For whatever it's worth, I've been able to reproduce this issue on macOS "High Sierra" recently, as well
Great, thanks Charlotte! Could you please tell me what version of autoconf you have by running
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.71built from source with pkgsrc -- fairly nonstandard setup, indeed
