Compile error

Hello,

I am trying to compile Ruby 1.6.7 on a FreeBSD 4.6.2 Intel x86 box. I get the
following output:

===> Building for ruby-1.6.7.2002.07.15
cc -O -pipe -march=pentiumpro -fPIC -I. -I. -c process.c
cc -O -pipe -march=pentiumpro -fPIC -I. -I. -c ruby.c
cc -O -pipe -march=pentiumpro -fPIC -I. -I. -c signal.c
process.c: In function proc_getpgrp': process.c:801: too many arguments to functiongetpgrp’

cc -O -pipe -march=pentiumpro -fPIC -I. -I. -c sprintf.c
*** Error code 1
1 error
*** Error code 2

I have searched the news groups, mailing lists, freebsd archives, and have not
found this error specific to this version of Ruby. This is a fairly vanilla
box, so I’m not sure what is going on. Is there a patch out somewhere that
I’m missing, or do I have a dependancy problem. Thanks in advance for the
help!

Did you get this working? Is this the 2002-03-01 release on the
website? I have compiled it on 4.6 STABLE with no problems.

It seems the bug of autoconf 2.52.

No -j for make when make a report like this… Yes, we can grep

for an actual source that have problem but none prefer to so.

It seems the bug of autoconf 2.52.

Let me explain more…

  1. first error is because config.h doesn’t define GETPGRP_VOID.
  2. second since it wrongly defines SETPGRP_VOID.

2 is well known problem as nobu described, see
http://sources.redhat.com/ml/autoconf-patches/2002-02/msg00059.html

However 1 is not so, at least on my environment configure properly
detect GETPGRP_VOID is needed. So there may be other thing.

But I also think that’s not ruby’s fault but a (newer?) bug of

autoconf.

Haste makes waste.

Try sup’ing your port of autoconf and rebuilding.
