Description hjl 2002-04-23 02:38:07 EDT
"[A-Z0-9_-.]*=*" { # process makefile style args like CC=gcc, etc...
            if [regexp "^(\[A-Z0-9_-\]+)=(.*)$" $option junk var val] {
                set $var $val
                verbose "$var is now $val"
                append makevars "set $var $val;" ;# FIXME: Used anywhere?
                unset junk var val
            } else {
                send_error "Illegal variable specification:\n"

is not in /usr/share/dejagnu/runtest.exp. As the result, "make check"
doesn't work in binutils/ld.
Comment 1 hjl 2002-04-25 14:42:07 EDT
The problem is CC=gcc is processed at the first parse, instead of the second
one. I am
submitting a patch now.

This bug has been fixed in the dejagnu cvs a few months ago:

revision 1.8
date: 2001/10/07 04:10:28;  author: rsavoye;  state: Exp;  lines: +5 -1
2001-10-06  Gwenole Beauchesne <gbeauchesne@mandrakesoft.com>

        * Check for Makefile style arguments in the second pass, but
        ignore them, so they don't become invalid arguments.

Please consider fixing it.
