In CentOS 6.8, everything works fine. But in CentOS 7, it does not. Initial investigation (I did a while back around New Year time) looks like later version of texinfo has an issue with autoconf. Enclosed is the email Chris Johns replied but I didn't follow through since I switched to CentOS 6.8 for my work.

"Looks to me like the RSB is trying to download autoconf 2.69-1 and from

Looks like this autoconf version has a bug. I also noticed my autoconf version is 2.69-11; however, from what I am reading, RSB will download its own version independent of what user has."

Chris John replies:

"I guess a recent texinfo version has exposed the issue. I suggest you get the patch from the link in the bug report, create a patch for rtems-tools.git to add the autoconf patch, then create a patch to the RSB adding the patch to the autoconf build, finally 'git send-email' the patches to devel@… for review."
