Description Steve Snyder 2004-06-03 02:03:24 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040120

Description of problem:
This error is seen when building binary packages from
xterm-179-6.EL.src.rpm on FC2:

creating Makefile
creating xtermcfg.h
+ make
gcc -I. -I. -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -I/usr/include/freetype2
-I/usr/include/freetype2/config -I/usr/X11R6/include -Dlinux
-D_GNU_SOURCE -march=pentium4 -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer  X.Org
Foundation -W -Wall -c ./button.c
gcc: X.Org: No such file or directory
gcc: Foundation: No such file or directory

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2 with "[] Everything" package selection
2. Run "rpmbuild --rebuild xterm-179-6.EL.src.rpm"

Actual Results:  Source files will not build because the string "X.Org
Foundation" is inserted into the compiler command line by Configure.

Expected Results:  Source files should build without error.

Additional info:

This is where the train goes off the tracks.  From file

Comment 1 Thomas E. Dickey 2004-06-03 23:11:02 UTC
This is (mostly) fixed in xterm patch #190.  I have a small
fix which will be in #191 (when I'm done testing the rest of
it, this week).

Comment 2 Thomas E. Dickey 2004-06-09 23:10:01 UTC
I committed #191 on Sunday.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2004-06-11 18:42:48 UTC
Thanks Thomas, I'll update xterm in rawhide soon.

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2004-06-18 22:16:32 UTC
xterm updated to 191 in rawhide now.

Thomas:  Do you have a small patch for this?  If so, I can add it
to our 179 packages too.


Comment 5 Thomas E. Dickey 2004-06-18 22:29:16 UTC
not really - the change was to macros in aclocal.m4 which iirc
had been fairly stable, but it changed several places.  Do a
diff and look at CF_ADD_CFLAGS, CF_IMAKE_CFLAGS (I recall there
were 3-4 macros modified, but those are the main ones).
