Subject:why is sco build using "-belf" and what does it mean ?
View as plain text  
I'm having problems running configure for mysql V3.22.20a on SCO OpenServer V5.0.4.

I get this in config.log:

configure:2315: gcc  -c   -belf  conftest.c 1>&5
gcc: installation problem, cannot exec `cpp': No such file or directory
gcc: file path prefix `/usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/elf/2.8.1/' never used
configure: failed program was:
#line 2297 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"
#if !defined(__STDC__)
choke me
#endif
/* DYNIX/ptx V4.1.3 can't compile sys/stat.h with -Xc -D__EXTENSIONS__. */
#ifdef _SEQUENT_
# include <sys/types.h>
# include <sys/stat.h>
#endif

int main() {

int test (int i, double x);
struct s1 {int (*f) (int a);};
struct s2 {int (*f) (double a);};
; return 0; }


I see that somehow Mysql's config thinks it's needed.  Any idea why ?
What does architecture type "elf" mean ?  Should I just make a link from
/usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/elf to my actual architecture-specific library ?

# grep belf * | more
aclocal.m4:  # On SCO OpenServer 5, we need -belf to get full-featured binaries.
aclocal.m4:  CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -belf"
config.log:configure:2315: gcc  -c   -belf  conftest.c 1>&5
config.log:configure:2315: gcc -qlanglvl=ansi -c   -belf  conftest.c 1>&5
config.log:configure:2315: gcc -std1 -c   -belf  conftest.c 1>&5
config.log:configure:2315: gcc -Aa -D_HPUX_SOURCE -c   -belf  conftest.c 1>&5
configure:  # On SCO OpenServer 5, we need -belf to get full-featured binaries.
configure:  CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -belf"
configure:      CC="$CC -belf";
configure:      CXX="$CXX -belf";
configure.in:   CC="$CC -belf";
configure.in:   CXX="$CXX -belf";
libtool:# CC="gcc" CFLAGS="  -belf" CPPFLAGS="" \
ltconfig:    special_shlib_compile_flags='-belf'

Thanks to Paul D. Smith at Bay for getting me this far...
