Description Gene Czarcinski 2004-01-29 17:11:59 EST
Description of problem:
On the x86_64, building gcc reqires both the x86_64 glibc-devel and
the i386 glibc-devel so that gcc can generate both 32 bit and 64 bit code.

The current situation is that there is the build fails with no real
obvious reason why.

The problem was that the i386 glibc-devel as not installed.

This RFE requests the addition of a Provides to the glibc-devel
package of the sort:

%ifarch i386
Provides: glibc-devel-i386

This can then be used by gcc in such as:

%ifarch x86_64
Buildreq: glibc-devel-i386

Comment 5 Jakub Jelinek 2005-07-26 04:18:50 EDT
IMHO that's a bad idea and very ugly.  If anything, gcc's spec could have:
%ifarch %{multilib_64_archs} sparc ppc
BuildRequires: /lib/libc.so.6 /usr/lib/libc.so /lib64/libc.so.6
and no changes are needed on the glibc side.
