I don't quite understand the issue. Why are you not using the proper release tar ball which includes said file?

e.g. xiphos-4.2.1.tar.xz

I could not find a way to get such file using USE_GITHUB. If it is possible to do it of course I would be glad to do it.

Otherwise I think the choice is between:

  • creating the missing the file manually;
  • drop USE_GITHUB and manually specify MASTER_SITES and DISTFILES.

I choosed the first solution as it looked cleaner to me.

Use the release file instead of patching the sources downloaded with USE_GITHUB, as suggested by tcberner.

I believe this is ready to land?
