Bug Description

added AArch64 support to libhdf4. would be nice if somebody could review it (see the hdfi.h patch) in the Ubuntu package.

Support for the ARM 64 bit CPU architecture (aarch64) was introduced in
autoconf 2.69. hdf appears to use an earlier version of
autoconf, preventing its being built. This can be fixed in of three ways (In order of preference):

1. Work with upstream to migrate the package to autoconf 2.69.

2. Rerun autoconf or autoreconf in %prep or %build prior to running

3. Apply the patch at http://ausil.fedorapeople.org/aarch64/hdf/hdf-aarch64.patch
which updates config.guess and config.sub to recognize aarch64.

Fixed with %configure macro change.

Does it pass hdf testsuite?

For those who will discuss with upstream:

Hello Marcin,

I discussed your build issue with HDF4 on ARM 64-bit. As mentioned,
this is not something we support currently, and it requires
software changes to get it working.

I went ahead and entered an enhancement report for the issue, in
case we can work on it in the future. For your reference, the
report is HDFFR-1453.

Took me a while but I got it pass most of testsuite.

Still fails on ncgen:

But it is much better than it was with my first or Matthias' patch.

summary: - added AArch64 support to libhdf4
+ HDF: AArch64 support

Created attachment 911805
patch + spec changes

%configure macro solved only config.{guess,sub} problem which was very minor.

This patch adds AArch64 support so it builds and passes most of testsuite. I am waiting for upstream response.
