upower and GOBJECT_INTROSPECTION_CHECK - syntax error in configure?



I'm installing Funtoo on my laptop, but I'm facing a strange error during the emerge of networkmanager: 


checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... yes

checking whether make supports nested variables... (cached) yes
./configure: line 3103: syntax error near unexpected token `0.9.9'
./configure: line 3103: `GOBJECT_INTROSPECTION_CHECK(0.9.9)'

   * Messages for package sys-power/upower-20140423:

 * ERROR: sys-power/upower-20140423 failed (prepare phase):

 Introspection USE flag is disabled:
  [ebuild  N    ] sys-power/upower-20140423  USE="deprecated -introspection -ios"
but the configure script seem to look for this GOBJECT_INTROSPECTION_CHECK function  :wacko:
I've already tried adding the USE flag "deprecated" to the /etc/portage/package.use (as suggested here http://forums.funtoo.org/index.php?/topic/120-upower-wants-an-xml-parser/)
Any suggestion?

I could not reproduce your build failure with or without the introspection USE flag enabled. Please mask sys-power/upower-20140423 and try sys-power/upower-0.99.0-r1. If that works, then I'm going to need more information. What version of sys-deve/autoconf and sys-devel/automake do you have installed?

Dantrell, emerge of the upower-0.99.0-r1 succeeded! (thank you very much)


Anyway, here are the versions of autoconf and automake I have on my system:


- sys-devel/autoconf 2.69

- sys-devel/automake 1.13.4


Please let me know if you need further info
