Description Volker Wegert 2014-06-01 11:26:28 UTC
After a complete reinstallation of one of my Mac systems, I'm trying a fresh bootstrap of Gentoo Prefix. I've installed OS X 10.9.3 and Xcode 5.1.1. The bootstrap process fails when merging gcc-apple-4.2.1_p5666-r1 because "The directory that should contain system headers does not exist: /usr/include".

The fix is rather trivial: execute xcode-select --install before attempting the bootstrap prefix. Would it be possible to add this to the instructions -- perhaps even extend the bootstrapping script so that it prints out a warning early in the process and provides a hint on how to resolve the situation?


Reproducible: Always

I added the hint to the script, thanks!
