Comment 1 oliver stieber 2003-04-23 06:34:06 UTC
It looks like there's a path problem with the configure file 
cd builds/unix 
cd ../.. 
Comment 2 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-04-23 06:50:16 UTC
it's only a problem for you it seems, how's things with freetype 2.1.4 (~ in portage) ?
Comment 3 oliver stieber 2003-04-23 09:03:54 UTC
freetype 1.4 has build problems too, and freetype is the only build I've had problems with (except 
OpenOffice which fails with freetype) 
Other people seem to have problems with freetype too 
I guess part of the problem is a bad envoronment 
/ should be $SOMEPATH/ 
Comment 4 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-04-23 09:26:18 UTC
our openoffice uses its own freetype afaic, so you would be running into the same problem.
Comment 5 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-04-23 09:28:16 UTC
what is your 'emerge info' btw and are you using any special stuff shellwise (not so common shell, bash-completion of some sort , etc.) ?
Comment 6 oliver stieber 2003-04-23 10:35:33 UTC
bash with code completion

Comment 8 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-04-23 10:39:13 UTC
and if you try without completion ? may sound silly, but i've seen it before breaking a configure.
Comment 9 oliver stieber 2003-04-25 07:46:44 UTC
the build still fails with code completion turned off. 
It looks like the makefile isn't calling ./builds/unix/configure properly since running config doesn't 
update etc... in  ./builds/unix 
Comment 10 Olaf Hering 2003-05-18 13:37:16 UTC
the 'unix' part is missing.
+       make setup CFG="--host=${CHOST} --prefix=/usr ${myconf}" unix || die

it did assume ansi for me, '~ppc'
Comment 11 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-08-10 12:21:51 UTC
yeah the whole config step seems to be missing. Revision bumped 2.1.4 to r1 and added an explicit unix setup step. Please test.

Think this should cover it, report problems back if found any.

Thanks for your patience.

Comment 12 oliver stieber 2004-05-25 12:00:40 UTC
I've just got my pc out of storage afte 6 months, and found out what the problem is.

The make scripts referance $OBJ_DIR without checking if it's set and search for a makefile in ($OBJ_DIR)/

for some weird reason I had a makefile in / so the wholemake process got confused.

the extra unix bit on make isn't required unix/  has unix as a dependanc of setup.

Comment 13 Denis Lukianov 2005-05-22 00:45:19 UTC
I have just encountered the same problem with 2.1.9.r1

If there exists a Makefile in / then the build will fail as above.
