Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 11002
rh 6.2 fails to compile xfree86 4.0
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
make locks up while compiling Xfree86 4.0 (from the .tar.gz sources), in
the 'making dependancies' phase. This is for egcs and make as supplied on
the RH 6.2. This bug is not present on RedHat 6.1 (with all the latest RH
6.1 updates applied).
As in the INSTALL.TXT file the command running is "make World >& world.log".
Tha last few lines of the world.log file at the point of the make process
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/xc/programs/xsetpointer'
depending in programs/xterm...
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/xc/programs/xterm'

Has anyone done anything on this? It's not a major problem (as we can download
binaries from the XFree website) but it's a little anooying not being able to
compile our own version.
This looks more like a problem with makedepend than make. I'm changing the
XFree86, because your problem is more likely to be resolved that way. FWIW, we
building XFree86-4.0 using make 3.79.1 successfully AFAIK, you can get src.rpm's
from Raw Hide.
Makedepend doesn't like egcs.
This should be fixed in 4.0.2. (And it's definitely fixed by using a newer
