The test suite fails due to a missing test script in tarball. I'll give upstream a PR.

This is the third time I see this kind of issue among BLFS packages :(.

The PR is submitted.

In the meantime we can manually grab the script from https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/polkit/polkit/-/raw/0.117/test/polkitbackend/polkitbackendjsauthoritytest-wrapper.py, and put it info test/polkitbackend.

Replying to bdubbs:

Base package is at:


The "git archive" package doesn't have a configure script. And for polkit autoconf -fi requires gtk-doc, introducing a hard dependency.

https://www.freedesktop.org/software/polkit/releases/polkit-0.117.tar.gz is the release tarball and we used to use https://www.freedesktop.org/software/polkit/releases/polkit-0.116.tar.gz before the snapshot.

For the missing test script we can add a patch.
