Description Jonathan Callen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-05-13 23:49:01 UTC
When building net-libs/webkit-gtk-0_p40220, I've found that the build fails immediately upon calling emake, as the makefile never creates the "DerivedSources" directory, which is needed for the first file to be built to be placed in.  An easy fix for this is to call "mkdir DerivedSources" immediately before emake in the ebuild, which allows the build to proceed.  My build logs are attached.

Note that while the build log shows MAKEOPTS=-j5, the build fails with -j1 as well.

Still an issue with 1.1.7?

Yes, and the same fix (`mkdir DerivedSources` at the end of src_configure) still works.
Comment 7 Jonathan Callen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-06-21 23:14:27 UTC
This is still an issue with the latest 1.1.10
Comment 8 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-08-28 13:47:53 UTC
Jonathan, I've just struggled from the same problem and found the root cause on my system: it's --disable-dependency-tracking enabled system wide. DerivedSources directory is created during dependency checking at ./config.status. I don't see any hints in your build output that you've disabled dependency tracking but may be this idea gives you clues...
Comment 9 Jonathan Callen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-08-28 17:28:08 UTC
I had forgotten that I had the line "enable_dependency_tracking=${enable_dependency_tracking-no}" in my /usr/share/config.site, which is equivalent to passing --disable-dependency-tracking everywhere.  So, yes, that does appear to be the cause on my system as well.

closing invalid then, thanks for reporting.
