Description Robert Penny 2014-01-09 01:17:58 UTC
The clisp package (as a prerequisite for wxmaxima) is failing during the configure stage when ncurses has been installed with the +tinfo use flag. I have tried the following versions with identical results.


This is building against ncurses version sys-libs/ncurses-5.9-r2

The configure fails with:

configure: ** checks for libraries
checking for library containing tgetent... no
configure: error: in `/var/tmp/portage/dev-lisp/clisp-2.48-r1/work/clisp-2.48/builddir':
configure: error: despite --with-readline, GNU readline was not found (try --with-libreadline-prefix)
See `config.log' for more details.

Burying down to config.log:


configure:52570: checking for library containing tgetent
configure:52611: gcc -o conftest -march=corei7 -O2 -pipe -Wa,--noexecstack -I/usr/include/db4.5  -Wl,-O1 -Wl,--sort-common -Wl,--as-needed conftest.c -ldl /usr/lib64/libavcall.a /usr/lib64/libcallback.a >&5

conftest.c:(.text.startup+0x7): undefined reference to `tgetent'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

... and ...

configure:52611: gcc -o conftest -march=corei7 -O2 -pipe -Wa,--noexecstack -I/usr/include/db4.5  -Wl,-O1 -Wl,--sort-common -Wl,--as-needed conftest.c -lncurses  -ldl /usr/lib64/libavcall.a /usr/lib64/libcallback.a >&5

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

The build succeeds on a different system that does not have the +tinfo flag set on the ncurses installation.

Checking the contents of the libraries, it can be seen that the tgetent symbol being tested for 

rob@TK-421 ~ $ nm -D /lib64/ | grep tgetent
rob@TK-421 ~ $ nm -D /lib64/ | grep tgetent
0000000000014780 T _nc_tgetent_leaks
0000000000013ed0 T tgetent

On the system without +tinfo, tgetent is in the ncurses shared library:

rob@mrroboto ~ $ nm -D /lib64/ | grep tgetent
000000000002f9d0 T _nc_tgetent_leaks
000000000002f120 T tgetent

Unfortunately, I need the tinfo flag set for cuda development.

# required by dev-util/nvidia-cuda-toolkit-5.0.35-r3[debugger], 
# required by nvidia-cuda-toolkit (argument)
>=sys-libs/ncurses-5.9-r2 tinfo

This may be an upstream problem as it seems that that it should be fixed at the autoconf level for the clisp source package.

Many thanks!

same happens here:
Comment 2 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-10-28 21:43:45 UTC
Fixed in 2.49-r8 (no revision bump).

The additional patch that I didn't put in is:

--- a/src/m4/termcap.m4
+++ b/src/m4/termcap.m4
@@ -30,7 +30,7 @@
-AC_SEARCH_LIBS(tgetent, ncurses termcap, LIBTERMCAP="")
+AC_SEARCH_LIBS(tgetent, tinfo ncurses termcap, LIBTERMCAP="")
 if test x$termcap_prefix != x; then
   if test x$LIBTERMCAP != xbroken; then

since autoreconf fails horribly and I didn't want to find out why.
