Rev 1.81 from 2003/09/27 of usr.bin/make/var.c introduces the use of asprintf() to make.
There should be an autoconf check in src/tools/make/configure.ac as well as a portable
asprintf() implementation in usr.bin/make/util.c to allow cross building from systems
which do not have asprintf() such as solaris 2.6 with gcc-2.95.1.
on solaris 2.6 with gcc-2.95.1 do:
env HOST_CC=gcc ./build.sh -m sparc64 \
-T /export/home1/software/build/tools \
-D /export/home1/software/build/destdir.sparc64 \
-R /export/home1/software/build/release/sparc64 release
and watch the nbmake bootstrap fail.
add a portable asprintf(). I tried just pasting in the one from libc, but
it didn't work. I didn't have time to figure out why. Pasting in a portable
asprintf() that had a GPL license (which is why I didn't send that patch in)
got the nbmake build to go.
