Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2006-04-13 14:59:48 EDT
Based on the blocker bug set here, I'm guessing that this is on ia64.  I do not
have access to such a box nor is it currently a supported platform for Fedora
Extras, but if you can suggest a fix, I'd be glad to apply patches.  It would be
good if a better fix than just ignoring the absence of ellcc on ia64 would be found.

Please post a full build log, that might answer some questions.

Also, by the way, 4.fc5 as opposed to 3.fc5 is the current FE5 XEmacs package
revision.  And if you're adventurous, the FE devel branch contains a
work-in-progress XEmacs 21.5.26.
Comment 2 Prarit Bhargava 2006-04-13 16:56:29 EDT
I think you just solved the bug.  The issue is not that ellcc is "missing", it's
that there is no (Build)Requires line for it...

Patch a'comin' ...

D'oh ... ignore that.  I'm sleepy.  I'll attach a build log shortly.

Ok, I think I got it fixed in CVS, 21.4.19-5.  Will not push a rebuild solely
for this because ia64 is not a supported FE platform, but the changes will be in
the next FE5 package revision whenever that happens.

In the meantime, please update your SRPM to the latest published one
(21.4.19-4.fc5, yours is 3.fc5) and try this patch on top of it:

> Still not building in FC ....

You mean FC5, right?  Have you tested with the patch in comment 6?
Comment 9 Ville Skyttä 2007-09-01 16:35:38 EDT
Prarit, any news about this?
Comment 10 Prarit Bhargava 2007-09-01 17:01:47 EDT
.... This is a year old :)  I haven't tried it in a long time.  Ville, I'll
close this out and reopen if necessary.
