I believe I noticed similar issue when I was compiling gxine against
xine-lib-devel- but didn't paid much attention to it, as
xine-lib-devel-1.1.10 fixed it (on F-8).

I tried it with now again on F8 with xine-lib-devel-1.1.10, with
success. After upgrading to xine-lib-devel- this error pops out
(it's on F8 i386 with the F8 package from koji):

checking for XINE-LIB version >= 1.0.1... 
*** 'xine-config --version' returned -1717986918.1072798105.-1717986918,

It's even stranger that the one in rawhide. The only change I did was
upgrade xine-lib* to But I really don't understand,
where the numbers come from, since running xine-config --version by hand

Going through configure of gxine show possible root of the problem:

xine_config_major_version=`$XINE_CONFIG $xine_config_args --version | \
             sed 's/\([0-9]*\).\([0-9]*\).\([0-9]*\)/\1/'`
      xine_config_minor_version=`$XINE_CONFIG $xine_config_args
--version | \
             sed 's/\([0-9]*\).\([0-9]*\).\([0-9]*\)/\2/'`
      xine_config_sub_version=`$XINE_CONFIG $xine_config_args --version
| \
             sed 's/\([0-9]*\).\([0-9]*\).\([0-9]*\)/\3/'`

Looking at the output of xine-config --version | sed 's/\([0-9]*
\).\([0-9]*\).\([0-9]*\)/\1/' shows some buggy behaviour. The output is
1.1, as well as for 2, and for 3 I get 10.1. Looks like the sed
expression is intended to work only with the MAJOR.MINOR.SUB version
string. If I add another .\([0-9]*\) to the expression than the output
is correct.

Any idea how to workaround this so that it works both with x.y.z and
x.y.z.w like version strings?
