i have a related question about this topic.  so i am running an OpenBSD
instance and am trying to figure out a way to fix a bug i'm running into
with the buildbot tool.

basically it looks like the buildbot process is not picking up my
environment and as such is not loading my AUTOCONF_VERSION env var.

so three questions:
1) anyone familiar with buildbot know how to ensure tasks load
environment variables?

2) i've set both AUTOMAKE_VERSOIN and AUTOCONF_VERSION in ~/.profile for
the UID running the buildbot python program?

3) where is a better location on openbsd for me to define these
arguments globally?

the buildbot workflow is pretty simple.  it does git clone -> autogen.sh
-> configure -> make -> make test -> make check

i'm failing on the autogen.sh step:

 in dir /home/buildslave/OpenBSD/build (timeout 1200 secs)
 watching logfiles {}
 argv: ['./autogen.sh']

 using PTY: False
Provide an AUTOCONF_VERSION environment variable, please
program finished with exit code 127
