Description Andrew Potter 2001-03-05 13:38:47 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.6 [en] (X11; I; Linux 2.2.12 i686)

The error message is:
command.c :36
parse error before '_extension_'

Line 36 in command.c is
extern char * strstr(const char *, const char *);

The program compiles OK using unix in Sun machines.  

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.tar -xvf vfudgit_4.2.tar
2.cd Fudgit_2.41  (this directory is created by tar)
3. make linux

 (I can ftp vfudgit_4.2.tar to you if your tell me where.)

Actual Results:  Compilation failed with the error message given in

Expected Results:  Program should have compiled OK.  It works OK for unix
on Sun machines.
Comment 1 Andrew Potter 2001-03-05 20:16:03 EST
I forgot to mention that the program will compile OK with Slackware Linux, v 3.
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2001-03-06 07:28:09 EST
This looks like a bug in vfudgit: it should not supply prototypes for functions
provided by libc. In this case it breaks because strstr is defined as a macro
in glibc if optimizing (and it is allowed to do so). Either remove the offending
prototypes, or compile with -D__NO_STRING_INLINES which will result in strstr
and a couple of other string functions not being defined as macros.
