Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 77885
h2ph incorrectly converts some glibc headers
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:48:27 EDT
Description of problem:
The version of h2ph included with perl < 5.8.0 incorrectly converts glibc header files that
include versioned elements such as "__GNUC_PREREQ (2,8)".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): perl < 5.8.0
Steps to Reproduce:
1.With perl < 5.8.0 execute h2ph against /usr/include/sys/cdefs.h or any other header that
includes such a versioned element as described above.
This bug is corrected by the Perl team in 5.8.0 and requires utils/h2ph.PL to be patched
(patch attached). This effects any version of Red Hat Linux running perl < 5.8.0
Created attachment 85125 [details]
Patch against perl5.005_03
The attached patch is against perl 5.005_03; however, 5.6.0 and 5.6.1 are likewise
affected and the same patch should apply against those versions as well.
Closing because 7.2 is not a supported product.
