Comment 2 Santiago M. Mola (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-01-13 03:54:08 UTC
I fail to see why $PATH should be a problem for $CC being an _absolute_ path. Add a quick explanation if you really think this is a duplicate.

I don't see how's Bug 56407 limited to path really. As the summary suggests, it's a generic bug about portage failing to sanitize ebuild environment.
Comment 4 Santiago M. Mola (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-01-13 12:37:18 UTC
Ok, it's a dupe of Bug 56407 in the sense that portage shouldn't be using user's env CC.

But what I'm reporting is actually libtool being broken when CC is a patch, and CC can be defined in PM's env.
Comment 5 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2008-01-13 20:51:19 UTC
portage should never remove CC from the environment

there are multiple issues here, all of which i blame on apache:
 - no package should ever execute libtool from /usr/bin/
 - apache's automake is old and does not pass the --tag option when executing libtool

i could further hack libtool so that its tag inferring logic takes into account full paths, but apache would still be broken

apache uses/needs to use (not entirely sure here) APRs libtool, and i guess other packages depending on APR do so as well, but for some reason i cannot remember installing APRs libtool was broken as well, otherwise we wouldn't have switched to the system libtool

not sure what to do here ...
Comment 7 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2008-01-19 20:42:31 UTC
i'm not sure i follow ... apache needs APRs libtool, but it can use the system's /usr/bin/libtool ?

any package that works with /usr/bin/libtool works with bundling a local version
Comment 8 Benedikt Böhm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-01-19 21:08:49 UTC
no, apache uses the same libtool as apr (via apr-1-config --apr-libtool), so we use /usr/bin/libtool in apr, otherwise we'd need to install the libtool bundled with apr/generated by eautoreconf
Comment 9 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2008-01-19 21:23:47 UTC
so when you say "APRs libtool", you actually mean "the same exact libtool that APR uses" ... so apache and APR use /usr/bin/libtool

Well, no not really. It blows up horribly and the apr-bundled libtool was already removed for this exact reason (things like Bug 81260).
 
Comment 11 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2008-02-28 18:36:20 UTC
you're mixing up "bundled" i think

when i say "bundled" i mean the configure process should be generating a libtool script which the rest of the one package's build system uses.  this is how all libtool based packages should work in order for things to work sanely.

i am not referring to any package *installing* a libtool script for other packages to utilize

Comment 14 Michael Haubenwallner gentoo-dev 2014-04-24 13:51:07 UTC
(In reply to SpanKY from comment #11)

Eventually, a separate autotoolized package just doing LT_INIT-things would help here, like https://github.com/haubi/host-libtool
which I'm using for ncurses and readline in Prefix for the moment:
http://prefix.gentooexperimental.org/hg/prefix-tree/diff/c9c7aedd3e4a/sys-libs/ncurses/ncurses-5.9-r02.1.ebuild
http://prefix.gentooexperimental.org/hg/prefix-tree/diff/950e40887d8a/sys-libs/readline/readline-6.2_p1-r1.ebuild

IMO, sys-devel/libtool should not install /usr/bin/libtool any more (just libtoolize). Instead, we might eventually want to install something like /usr/${CHOST}/bin/libtool - as noone would find /usr/bin/${CHOST}-libtool.

However, I could imagine for /usr/bin/libtool to be a wrapper redirecting to proper sth. like /usr/bin/${CHOST}-libtool for cross-compiling and the like...
Comment 15 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2014-04-29 21:58:00 UTC
(In reply to Michael Haubenwallner from comment #14)

it would help to a degree.  the apache packages still probe their internal helper scripts looking for paths, and libtool is just one of the items they extract.

the latest versions in the tree should properly cross-compile now and should work under prefix afaict.
Comment 16 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-02-08 18:46:24 UTC
Is this still the case with apache-2.4?
Comment 17 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2016-02-08 23:35:47 UTC
apr-util still pokes apr directly and runs its libtool script:
/bin/bash /usr/share/build-1/libtool  --mode=compile x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc -pthread  -O2 -march=amdfam10 -pipe -g -frecord-gcc-switches -Wimplicit-function-declaration -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -DLINUX -D_REENTRANT -D_GNU_SOURCE  -DCPPFLAGS_TEST -I/var/tmp/portage/dev-libs/apr-util-1.5.4-r1/work/apr-util-1.5.4/include -I/var/tmp/portage/dev-libs/apr-util-1.5.4-r1/work/apr-util-1.5.4/include/private -I/usr/include/postgresql-9.4  -I/usr/include/apr-1  -I/usr/include/db6.0  -o buckets/apr_buckets.lo -c buckets/apr_buckets.c && touch buckets/apr_buckets.lo

so does apache:
/usr/share/build-1/libtool --silent --mode=compile x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc -std=gnu99  -pthread  -O2 -march=amdfam10 -pipe -g -frecord-gcc-switches -Wimplicit-function-declaration    -DLINUX -D_REENTRANT -D_GNU_SOURCE  -DCPPFLAGS_TEST   -I. -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/os/unix -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/include -I/usr/include/apr-1 -I/usr/include/db6.0 -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/aaa -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/cache -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/core -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/database -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/filters -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/ldap -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/loggers -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/lua -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/proxy -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/session -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/ssl -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/test -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/server -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/arch/unix -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/dav/main -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/generators -I/var/tmp/portage/www-servers/apache-2.4.12/work/httpd-2.4.12/modules/mappers  -prefer-non-pic -static -c unixd.c && touch unixd.lo
