Cures failed building because of spaces before X_LITTLE_ENDIAN (1.50 KB, patch)

Description Enrico Scholz 2000-08-02 19:53:31 EDT
`rpm --rebuild XFree...' fails because xc/config/cf/Image.tmpl contains too
much spaces (tabs) before X_LITTLE_ENDIAN.

It's seems to be the flaw described in QNX4.cf:

| XCOMM you can only one space (or tab) between ByteOrder and
| XCOMM or you will have -DX_BYTE_ORDER=       X_LITTLE_ENDIAN
| XCOMM in the generated Makefile

After applying to following patch, the build will fail also -- this time
because of 

|LD_LIBRARY_PATH=        ../../../exports/lib
../../../exports/bin/mkfontdir .

I haven't tested it yet, but I think it's because in linux.cf there are two
tab's before LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

The build was _not_ done on a Pinstripe installation but with the exception
of XFree86 (rpm version 3.3.6-20) the important packages are from beta4. Is
it possible an old xmkmf is used?

Bad cpp. This is fixed in pinstripe.
