Description Brian Hall 2005-06-01 07:14:44 UTC
openssh configure fails at the start of the emerge, claiming that zlib is too
old, even though 1.2.2 > Re-emerging zlib doesn't help, may be a
problem in openssh.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge =net-misc/openssh-4.1_p1

Actual Results:  
checking for zlib.h... yes
checking for possibly buggy zlib... yes
configure: error: *** zlib too old - check config.log ***
Your reported zlib version has known security problems.  It's possible your
vendor has fixed these problems without changing the version number.  If you
are sure this is the case, you can disable the check by running
"./configure --without-zlib-version-check".
If you are in doubt, upgrade zlib to version or greater.
See for details.

!!! Please attach the config.log to your bug report:
!!! /var/tmp/portage/openssh-4.1_p1/work/openssh-4.1p1/config.log

!!! ERROR: net-misc/openssh-4.1_p1 failed.
!!! Function econf, Line 485, Exitcode 0
!!! econf failed
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.

# epm -q zlib

output from openssh configure step

This is the config.log the error message says should be included with the bug
Comment 2 Brian Hall 2005-06-01 07:51:09 UTC
Fails identically on 2004.3 and 2005.0 (I have two AMD64 Gentoo boxes on
different  releases).
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-06-03 05:42:54 UTC
looks like the zlib check doesnt take into the account we patched that version

just upgrade your zlib to 1.2.2 and it should emerge fine
Comment 4 Brian Hall 2005-06-04 08:23:32 UTC
My zlib is ALREADY at 1.2.2. I have unmerge and reemerged zlib several times now
to no effect.

# epm -q zlib

Comment 5 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-06-04 17:21:39 UTC
what does this show on your machine ?

$ echo -e '#include <zlib.h>\nZLIB_VERSION' | gcc -E - | tail
Comment 6 Brian Hall 2005-06-04 18:14:07 UTC
Hmm, that shows 1.2.1

I don't understand, I've removed and reinstalled it and portage claims its 1.2.2?

# echo -e '#include <zlib.h>\nZLIB_VERSION' | gcc -E - | tail
extern int inflateBackInit_ (z_stream *strm, int windowBits, unsigned char
*window, const char *version, int stream_size);
# 1189 "/usr/local/include/zlib.h" 3
    struct internal_state {int dummy;};

extern const char * zError (int err);
extern int inflateSyncPoint (z_streamp z);
extern const uLongf * get_crc_table (void);
# 2 "<stdin>" 2

Comment 7 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-06-04 18:22:14 UTC
you have crap in /usr/local

you should remove it
