Current Pkgsrc on OLD current NetBSD Cobalt Failures
I've had two failures trying to update my pkgsrc packages for my
Cobalt RaQ2 that I thought were worth talking about on these lists:
emacs: Emacs fails because they've decided to obsolete pmax machines
(their configure script considers netbsd--mipsel == pmax). I've
patched that test and emacs built just fine, but I haven't had a
chance to install & test it.
ImageMagick: This is the problem that's really giving me trouble.
wand/convert.c has a huge function, and the compiler I'm using (from
NetBSD 3.99.20, a 'current' from June 2006) fails to generate
something it can assemble because the code it generates tries to
branch too far and the assembler generates the following error messages:
/var/tmp//ccVsYTny.s: Assembler messages:
/var/tmp//ccVsYTny.s:42317: Error: Branch out of range
/var/tmp//ccVsYTny.s:42509: Error: Branch out of range
/var/tmp//ccVsYTny.s:42699: Error: Branch out of range
/var/tmp//ccVsYTny.s:43454: Error: Branch out of range
/var/tmp//ccVsYTny.s:43647: Error: Branch out of range
/var/tmp//ccVsYTny.s:43832: Error: Branch out of range
There are work arounds on the net to restructure the code, or edit the
assembly, but I was wondering if anyone using either a newer release
(4.x), or newer current could try compiling ImageMagick and let me
know if the newer system/compiler solves the problem?
Also, would it be possible for me to install a newer compiler from
pkgsrc to solve this problem?
