Description Paul Johnson 2001-03-27 12:26:24 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686)

This SRPM file for the NCSA's data format library "HDF5" will compile with
gcc-2.95.3, but not with gcc-2.96.69:

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. get my srpm file above
2. rpm -ivh hdf5-1.4.0-1.src.rpm
3. In your SPEC directory, type rpm -ba hdf5-1.4.0.spec


Actual Results:  compile fails, NCSA staff correctly blame gcc

Expected Results:  should compile!

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2001-03-27 13:06:21 UTC
You did not specify what exactly it fails on.
What I saw is that it fails after dependency making, which is a result of
HDF's braindamaged dependency making machinery, when it is build outside
of source directory, it works fine and whole make succeeds
cd hdf5-1.4.0
mkdir obj; cd obj
CC=gcc ../configure --disable-hsizet --prefix=/usr/local
What hdf does is that it gets totally foobar if srcdir = ., because then
it changes the dependencies with
sed 's% $(srcdir)/% $$(srcdir)/%g'
so some dependencies look like $(srcdir)usr/include/features.h etc.
