I need to include the below buildlinks in order to make a new package, that
I am preparing compile:
However, FreeBSD-4-STABLE build of such package fails while buildlinking with:
bmake: Exec of /bin/sh' failed (Argument list too long)
Of course, I can recompile whole world, bumping ARG_MAX value, which is by
default defined in /usr/include/sys/syslimits.h:
#define ARG_MAX 65536 /* max bytes for an exec function */
... and you can reply me "If FreeBSD-4 has some things done in a brain-dead
way, don't use it then" -- but maybe there are some other possibilities?
I have put a "bmake -dx" output at
I have (blindly) turned off _BLNK_CACHE_ALL+= FreeBSD-*-* declared in
mk/buildlink2/bsd.buildlink2.mk, didn't change the situation.
