Comment 8 Attila Tóth 2019-11-19 23:59:11 UTC
It's a glibc-2.30+ problem:

patch for gettid in glibc 2.30

I noticed this same problem when building against glibc 2.30. Based on a related Firefox bug that was reported upstream I came up with this patch.

https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/7b85bf9c5210 this should apply with ease on top of seamonkey when applied via ${S}/mozilla, I am unsure why you are needing to patch GeckoSampler.cpp unless it is not including platform.h which I believe it does already. I have not confirmed any of this and I am unable to test with my musl system.

Comment 12 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2020-03-26 21:25:47 UTC
Could we please either patch this or get a newer seamonkey stable?

It's blocking glibc-2.30 stabilization.
