coreutils sha256/512 hangs ppc compile

Reported by: darwin@… Owned by: pipping@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.5.2
Keywords: coreutils Cc: pipping@…, darwin@…, nox@…


Compiling either /lib/sha256.c or /lib/sha512.c from the coreutils port took an inordinate amount of time. After a while I assumed it to be inifinite and aborted the install.

The compile command macports attempted was this like this [s/256/512 for sha512]: gcc -std=gnu99 -I. -I/opt/local/include -O2 -MT sha256.o -MD -MP -MF .deps/sha256.Tpo -c -o sha256.o sha256.c

The command I changed it to that compiled: gcc -std=gnu99 -I. -I/opt/local/include -MT sha256.o -MD -MP -MF .deps/sha256.Tpo -c -o sha256.o sha256.c

Spot the difference? No optimization flag. Something is going on with gcc trying to optimize this on ppc and taking forever.

This prevents installation of said port.

Are you using the default /usr/bin/gcc? It works here.

I had the same problem. Turning off optimization provided quick compilation. /usr/bin/gcc --version reports: powerpc-apple-darwin8-gcc-4.0.0 (GCC) 4.0.0 20041026 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 4061).

installing a more recent xcode should solve this iirc
