1.4 ! dmcmahil 5: ==========================================================================
! 7: Some versions of Linux (RHEL3 Update 2 for i386 for example) have a
! 8: /usr/lib/libacl.la libtool archive file that lists /lib/libattr.la as a
! 9: dependency. However, libattr.la does not exist in /lib/libattr.la. If
! 10: this is the case, the bootstrap will fail with
! 12: grep: /lib/libattr.la: No such file or directory
! 13: /usr/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/wrk/pkgtools/pkg_install/work/.tools/bin/sed: can't read /lib/libattr.la: No such file or directory
! 14: libtool: link: `/lib/libattr.la' is not a valid libtool archive
! 16: The soltion is to copy /usr/lib/libattr.la to /lib/libattr.la with:
! 18: cp -p /usr/lib/libattr.la /lib
! 20: ==========================================================================
1.1 grant 22: Some versions of Linux (for example Debian GNU/Linux) need either libtermcap
23: or libcurses (libncurses). Installing the distributions libncurses-dev
24: package (or equivalent) should fix the problem.

1.2 grant 28: pkgsrc supports both gcc (GNU Compiler Collection) and icc (Intel C++
29: Compiler). gcc is the default. icc 8.0 and 8.1 on i386 have been tested.
31: To bootstrap using icc, assuming the default icc installation
34: env CC=/opt/intel_cc_80/bin/icc LDFLAGS=-static-libcxa \
35: ac_cv___attribute__=yes ./bootstrap
1.3 grant 37: note: icc 8.1 needs the `-i-static' argument instead of
1.2 grant 40: icc supports __attribute__, but the GNU configure test uses a nested
41: function, which icc does not support. #undef'ing __attribute__ has the
42: unfortunate side-effect of breaking many of the Linux header files, which
43: cannot be compiled properly without __attribute__. The test must be
44: overridden so that __attribute__ is assumed supported by the compiler.
46: After bootstrapping, you should set PKGSRC_COMPILER in mk.conf:
50: The default installation directory for icc is /opt/intel_cc_80, which
51: is also the pkgsrc default. If you have installed it into a different
52: directory, set ICCBASE in mk.conf:
56: pkgsrc uses the static linking method of the runtime libraries
57: provided by icc, so binaries can be run on other systems which do not
58: have the shared libraries installed.
60: Libtool, however, extracts a list of libraries from the ld(1) command
61: run when linking a C++ shared library and records it, throwing away
62: the -Bstatic and -Bdynamic options interspersed between the libraries.
63: This means that libtool-linked C++ shared libraries will have a
64: runtime dependency on the icc libraries until this is fixed in
