This mail contains descriptions of problems, but (intentionaly) no
fixes. FYI, I am a Canadian citizen. (I am not sure exactly what
this implies in term of what I can contribute, but it's better for me
to state it before you decide to read the rest.)
I tried to configure and make on
LINGUAS='fr en' sh ./configure --verbose \
Here are excerpts from the make output:
ttyio.c:96: warning: implicit declaration of function `strerror'
ttyio.c:96: warning: format argument is not a pointer (arg 2)
mpicoder.c:310: warning: implicit declaration of function `memmove'
collect2: ld returned 2 exit status
ld: Undefined symbol
SunOS doesn't have strerror. Don't look in /usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xos.h
for inspiration, because it does contain a (non GPL) macro for it.
SunOS also doesn't have memmove, but it does have bcopy.
tiger.c: In function `transform':
tiger.c:709: warning: left shift count >= width of type
tiger.c:716: warning: left shift count >= width of type
BIG_ENDIAN_HOST is defined on Sun and also byte == unsigned char and
u64 == unsigned long long. But ((byte) << n), where n >= 8, is zero.
The problem is that byte is not typecast to u64 before it is shifted.
(The solution to this problem is intentionaly left out. :-)
PS: I am not on the mailing list; I just followed the bug report
instructions in the README file and sent this here. So please use Cc
