Cannot build apcups on slack64-current


Using the current slackbuild for 3.14.7 and unable to compile apcups with snmp enabled. Getting the error
Code:
In file included from drv_powernet.c:27:

It compiles fine without snmp. I have net-snmp installed on slack64. The build also works fine on slack32-current with snmp. Anyone have luck with apcups on slack64?

in apcupsd.SlackBuild, change:

elif [ "$ARCH" = "x86_64" ]; then
SLKCFLAGS="-O2 -fPIC"
LIBDIRSUFFIX="64"
fi

to

elif [ "$ARCH" = "x86_64" ]; then
SLKCFLAGS="-O2 -fPIC -DNETSNMP_NO_LEGACY_DEFINITIONS=1"
LIBDIRSUFFIX="64"
fi


for some reason,

/usr/include/net-snmp/library/mib.h:#define MIB NETSNMP_MIB2_OID

which causes the string MIB to get treated as a macro. Adding the -D definition is probably not the right way to fix this, but it'll work.

Thanks for the help. Any reason why MIB is defined differently in Slack64. Or is this a question for Pat himself?

We'd need to poke through the net-snmp headers a little deeper to know for sure, but I noticed a couple of other 64 bit platforms make the same definition (-DNETSNMP_NO_LEGACY_DEFINITIONS=1). I would shoot the package maintainer a message, he'll probably spot the problem right away.

I'll try to get this worked around in the script soonish. Based on what I see in the current cvs code for apcupsd, it looks like the author is planning to use an internal "minisnmp" library for future releases, so I don't see much reason to even bother with trying to find a "better" fix.
