Description Liviu Andronic 2008-10-23 18:00:44 UTC
Dear Gentoo developers,

The latest Portage-stable AbiWord refused to compile on my system, because of a bug in the Makefile. I managed to build AbiWord with help from the Gentoo-users ML [1], especially from Fabrice Delliaux who wrote the building-fix patch. 


Comment 1 Liviu Andronic 2008-10-23 18:04:35 UTC
The specific build failure was: 
"GNUmakefile:964: *** mixed implicit and normal rules.  Stop.". 
For more debug messages, please check the ML discussion (mentioned in the initial comment). If you need the build log when compilation fails, please let me know and I will recreate the failing-build environment. 

Please find "emerge --info" output below.

Did you report this upstream or shall we do it for you ?

The issue was not reported upstream. Please do so. 
Comment 6 Fab 2008-10-29 17:56:24 UTC

Fixed by upstream for next 2.6.x version, upstream bug 11797 [1], revision 24954 [2].

fix build using only sed in ebuild

Same effect, using only sed in the ebuild for patching.
Comment 8 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2008-12-14 22:45:36 UTC
I just pushed 2.6.5 to the tree, please confirm it fixes this problem.

=abiword-2.6.4 part of build log

For my part, =abiword-2.6.4 from the official portage tree has never failed with this error (see attached part of log). I don't see why make fails with this line on Liviu's system. So, logically, 2.6.5 should build fine for me, since it's just a comment line which has been removed in generated makefile.

My system is mostly stable x86 with CFLAGS="-O2 -march=pentium4 -pipe -ggdb". I can try to build 2.6.5 and attach emerge --info if you want, but I don't think it will be relevant.

I just built 2.6.5 by renaming the (original) 2.6.4 ebuild, and everything compiled fine.

2.6.5 is in the tree since a few days already, please try the in tree version.

2.6.5 from the official tree seems to compile without any problems.
