Solved Problem Second GCC-Pass(or gettext sanity check problem)
I had a problem and I was wondering if other people experienced the same.
I solved mine but hope that other may have something about my solution to the problem.
I compiled a lot of stuff until I got to chapter 5.22: Compiling gettext.
I ran the configure script but always got an error:
I tried to give options to cpp to let it use c++. I tried:
and similar commands to set the language to c++ through variables.
That didn't work so I started to do some check for myself.
After reading about the -x option of gcc, I came up with a good check.
I made a dummy-file as explained in the LFS-Book but named it dummy.cc, thus
letting the compiler think it is a c++-file. With this approach I noticed I Lacked a
c++-compiler. This was quite a surprise since I wrote all the scripts in the same way as the book. But since my LFS was useless I decided to start all over again.
Getting to the point off GCC second pass, I decided to put '' around 'c,c++' in the time-script I used for measuring the time in order to determine SBUs.
My Good time script for gcc-3.4.3:
So I am now positive I have a c++-compiler.
This has cost me a lot of time, for a problem that was solved very easy, and could have been prevented by better dummy-checks. I therefore hope that people will read this and will preform a lot of dummy-checks. Hopefully someone will point this simple check out to the LFS-people, so people know if the have a compiler on time and not after compiling a lot of other stuff before experiencing an error.
Because of the solution I have found I reckon that other people that count the time compiling takes using a script like mine are likely to experience the same problem, which is likely to be caused by the way bash interprets script.
I hope someone finds this a bit helpful.
Although it is annoying you notice the mistake very late.
