#5680 closed defect (fixed)

./configure uses `pr`, which isn't provided by busybox

I submitted a patch to libav for this as well, but I noticed this didn't get merged into ffmpeg. Basically this patch just changes log_file() within ./configure to use printf for the formatting, rather than pr, a POSIX.1 command which is a little obscure (and therefore not provided by busybox), and easily replaceable in its usage.

Please send your patch to the development mailing list, patches are ignored here.
Could you explain how I can reproduce on a random Linux system? (Is it possible?)
