posted the wrong one which was an html formatted one, now is corrected.
Comment 8 Ryan Hill (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-17 03:36:09 UTC
thanks.  there are still some errors but i'm working on them now.

this is a preliminary patch that successfully builds

dev-libs/boost-1.34.1-r2  USE="icu -debug -doc -pyste -tools"

i will need to patch gccxml before i can test USE=pyste and i get a failure with USE=tools that i need to look into.  the testsuite probably needs work too.  debian and fedora have some build fixes that i didn't seem to need, some of which Keith posted above.  i'll have to look into that too.
Comment 10 Keith R. 2008-02-17 15:14:00 UTC
Sorry I didn't know how to combine the all above patches into a single solid one.
Comment 11 Ryan Hill (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-28 02:07:29 UTC
boost is still broken with this patch.

"dirtyepic, with your patch from here boost compile with gcc-4.3, but it doesn't resolve problems with packages that depend on it, eg. tagpy still fails with the same error message as it used to with boost compiled with gcc-4.2.3."

i need to work on this some more soon.  it's worth noting that boost svn builds without any problems.

This is the patch applied by fedora
Comment 13 Neil Cathey 2008-03-03 10:56:03 UTC
Ryan's patch from comment #9 fixes the compilation of boost, but at least one other package that depends on boost (glob2-0.9.2) still fails.  glob2 needs a patch for boost/date_time/date_facet.hpp in order to compile correctly, or else you'll get some redeclaration errors.  (I noticed that patch is included in the Fedora patch from comment #12).

USE="tools" still failed.  It took me a while (hours!), but I think I may have found the problem.  boost/serialization/collection_traits.hpp is missing a #include <climits>.  It uses ULONG_MAX in an #ifdef.  Since ULONG_MAX is being used in an #ifdef, gcc did not throw any errors about it being undeclared, but instead other things were being erroneously #defined because of the miscalculation.

I'm going to attach a patch that combines all of the previous patches, including the patch for collection_traits.hpp.  Aside from missing includes, the other patches on this bug modified some references (boost::mpl::next, instead of just next).  I do not know if they are required or not, but I included them.  As a test, I just finished recompiling all packaged depending on boost on my system, and they all compiled just fine.

Patch for boost-1.34.1 to compile with gcc-4.3

This patch allows me to compile boost-1.34.1 with USE="tools".
Comment 15 Ryan Hill (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-10 02:12:14 UTC
Thanks Neil.  I think those are pieces that were missing.  A couple things were fixed a little differently upstream but the end result is the same.  I've added your patch to the gcc-porting overlay.

Comment 16 David Carlos Manuelda 2008-04-03 01:14:09 UTC
boost-1.34.1-r1 also fails at compile time.

It seems to works for me on ~amd64
Comment 18 Tiziano Müller (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-25 06:48:25 UTC
sorry people, but I'm not going to fix boost-1.34.1, but you should use boost-1.35.0 with gcc-4.3.x (which compiles with a couple of patches).

Thanks to Ryan Hill, patch boost-1.34.1-gcc-4.3.patch really help me to compile boost-1.34.1-r2
