Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 165529
Make: assert() fails, make dumps core

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #55490 +++
This is the only line in a makefile:
a: CFLAGS += -DMAIN
There is a file a.c, which is irrelevant. I used a simple helloworld
Run make as:
binand@binand[~/testprogs]:(25) make CFLAGS+=-DMAIN a
This is the output:
cc -DMAIN -DMAIN a.c -o a
make: expand.c:489: allocated_variable_append: Assertion
`current_variable_set_list->next != 0' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)
I wanted to try valgrind,
but couldn't rebuild valgrind-2.2.0-5.EL4.src.rpm or valgrind-2.4.0-3.src.rpm
on a RHEL3WS system.
It is fixed in RHEL4. I don't think it is severe enough to justify a RHEL3
errata at this point.
