This has been solved by making the libpci check conditional on actually
needing libpci (i.e. not for the serial and USB and dummy flashers).
I disagree with this. The point was to create a configure script and
check for pciutils one time only.
I may have misunderstood the point of the bug in that case. Sorry about
Quoting from the original bug description:
the check also claims that packages can not be found
for any build
error, which is not good enough.
The code changed months ago to fix this issue, and since that was 72% of
the bug description text, I felt it was appropriate to close the bug.
Side note: Last time I tried to split up Makefile into Makefile and
configure, there was strong opposition against that idea. I do listen to
others, and since it works for users right now (and is admittedly easier
to use), it is unlikely that such a split will happen.
Feel free to open a ticket for this, preferably in flashrom trac at
