Description of problem:
When I try to build the beecrypt component of rpm, I get the following error.
/bin/sh ./libtool --mode=compile /usr/local/bin/gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.
O3 -g -I -I/hp-ux -c -o entropy.lo `test -f 'entropy.c' || echo './'`entropy.c
rm -f .libs/entropy.lo
/usr/local/bin/gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I. -O3 -g -I -I/hp-ux -c entropy.c
-DPIC -o .libs/entropy.lo
entropy.c:912: error: parse error before "dev_tty_lock"
entropy.c:912: error: `DEFAULTMUTEX' undeclared here (not in a function)
entropy.c:912: warning: data definition has no type or storage class
I found that within the code for entropy.c, there are several lines like the
#if defined(_REENTRANT) && !defined(hpux)
Now, I'm pretty sure that I have flicked the safety off in preparation for
shooting myself in the foot later, but I patched entropy.c to replace the
!defined(hpux) with defined(hpux), which causes beecrypt to build.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Untar the rpm-4.1.tar.gz package
2. Patch to get popt to compile (I haven't entered that bug yet)
3. Patch to remove beecrypt warning message (see Bug 97662)
4. ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --without-python (I don't think the options
Actual Results: The error message noted above.
Created attachment 92563 [details]
beecrypt entropy.c patch
The patch for the popt bug is in bug number 97907.
Patch sent upstream, might be in beecrypt-3.0.1 soonish.
Meanwhile, beecrypt is moving out of rpm, external linkage instead.
