avr-libc Build Error on Leopard

When attempting to install avr-libc on Leopard (Intel iMac) I get the following error:

Error: Target org.macports.configure returned: configure failure: shell command " cd "/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_cross_avr-libc/work/avr-libc-1.4.4" && ./configure --prefix=/opt/local --prefix=/opt/local --host=avr --build=`./config.guess` " returned error 1

I have already installed avr-gcc and avr-binutils. Those executables work when I invoke them. It seems that the configure step for avr-libc is not finding the correct gcc and is attempting to use the system's gcc (/usr/bin/gcc-4.0). If I download the source to avr-libc and do a manual configure and install outside of MacPorts everything works correctly. Is this a known problem and if so how do I correct it?

Running directly from the shell works, as said. In this case CC is unset. When issuing "port configure avr-libc" then CC is "/usr/bin/gcc-4.0". PATH is the same in both cases. Hopefully this is a clue!

The installation works if this line is added in the portfile: avr-gcc

Building and uploading a firmware to an Arduino using the installed avr-libc and avrdude works. I have not verified that the firmware runs correctly, but I think errors related to this ticket would have occurred earlier.

Are there an updates? Adding this avr-gcc line works for me too, but why is the portfile isn't updated yet?

This is still a problem.

  • Keywords avr-libc removed
  • Port avr-libc added
  • Resolution set to fixed

Should be fixed in r41411 (maintainer timeout).
