Libtool has syntax errors when running after GLib-2 cross compile for PPC using LTIB?


Hi guys-

So I've run into a strange problem in a somewhat complicated situation:

First, I'm trying to cross compile mono 2.6.4 so that it will run on Freescale Embedded Linux for a PowerPC CPU. My host machine is running Fedora 13 on an x86. Freescale provides a copy of the Linux Target Image Builder (LTIB) that has been pre-configured for the particular board I'm using, and LTIB seems to be able to help with the cross compilation of other stuff--you can add in your own packages to be built and included in your newly-built Linux image.

Mono depends on pkg-config and glib-2, so I have selected them in the LTIB package selection config. I've also added a new package for mono that builds mono-2.6.4 from the source tar (after the other deps have also been built).

I'm having a problem getting the glib-2.24.0 package libraries created. Basically they appear to build and link ok, but then libtool runs and errors out claiming it has a syntax error! (numerous wths followed...)

Here is LTIB's temporary build script for only the glib2 package:
Code:
#!/bin/sh

  RPM_SOURCE_DIR="/home/Mike/ltib-mpc8572ds-20100115/rpm/SOURCES"
  RPM_BUILD_DIR="/home/Mike/ltib-mpc8572ds-20100115/rpm/BUILD"
  RPM_OPT_FLAGS="-O2 -fsigned-char"
  RPM_ARCH="i386"
  RPM_OS="linux"
  export RPM_SOURCE_DIR RPM_BUILD_DIR RPM_OPT_FLAGS RPM_ARCH RPM_OS
  RPM_DOC_DIR="/opt/freescale/ltib/usr/doc"
  export RPM_DOC_DIR
  RPM_PACKAGE_NAME="glib2"
  RPM_PACKAGE_VERSION="2.24.0"
  RPM_PACKAGE_RELEASE="1"
  export RPM_PACKAGE_NAME RPM_PACKAGE_VERSION RPM_PACKAGE_RELEASE
  RPM_BUILD_ROOT="/home/Mike/ltib-mpc8572ds-20100115/tmp/glib2"
  export RPM_BUILD_ROOT
  
  set -x
  umask 022
  cd /home/Mike/ltib-mpc8572ds-20100115/rpm/BUILD
cd glib-2.24.0
# prevent configure from trying to compile and
# run test binaries for the target.

ac_cv_func_posix_getgrgid_r=yes \
./configure --prefix=/usr --host=$CFGHOST --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu

exit 0
Here is the output when building the glib2 package (configure + make):
Code:
[Mike@dev-vm-mbuilder3 ltib-mpc8572ds-20100115]$ ./ltib -m scbuild -p glib2

Why is the build for i686 when the target is ppc?

The parameter names are somewhat inconsistent in how they refer to the system doing the building (which I'd call the Host) and the system for which the binaries are being constructed (which I'd call the Target). In that particular line, build= refers to the Target architecture, which (I agree) is confusing. I had to verify this myself because I was not sure.

In this cross-compile case, the Host (builder machine) is i686-linux and the Target is ppc-linux.

After much heartburn I believe we have worked around this problem. It looks like this was being caused by NM not being defined, which was being concatenated with a number of other commands within Libtool. When NM evaluated to nothing, this resulted in the syntax error mentioned above.

Apparently this NM problem was introduced back in glib-2.19.something and people have been working around it since then. Defining a shell variable NM to lower-case nm before the call to configure (eg: "NM=nm") seems to work around the problem effectively.

I consider this to no longer be a problem. Thanks to all that might have spent time thinking about it for me.

I have this same problem while installing another package. Where exactly should I give NM = nm ?

Thanks!

Hi cinda-
Below is part of my LTIB glib2.spec file, which runs configure and then make for the glib-2.24.1 in my environment. Hope this helps.

Code:
...

glib_cv_stack_grows=no \
glib_cv_uscore=no \
ac_cv_func_posix_getpwuid_r=yes \
ac_cv_func_posix_getgrgid_r=yes \
NM=nm \
./configure --prefix=%{_prefix} --host=$CFGHOST --build=%{_build}

make

...

Thank for the reply Mike.

But I am not able to figure out my problem. I am working on buildroot- cross compile tool for gumstix. And I guess configure is called from makefile.in. I tried adding the statement there. Thanks anyway!

I tried your fix "NM=mn" in my clutter.spec just before calling configure.
