#15979 closed defect (worksforme)

m4-1.4.11 build failure - configure hang

Reported by: marks@… Owned by: blair (Blair Zajac)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc:


in the tests for gl_cv_func_printf_precision and gl_cv_func_printf_enomem hang, the conftest program hangs.

as a workaround, i set these both to "yes" manually in the configure script, which allowed the build to complete.

I can't reproduce this on any of my systems (10.4 ppc, 10.5 i386) and this is the first report of a hang like this, so there's something going on with your system.

I recommend attaching to the hung process with gdb and see what's going on with it.

I'm closing this as 'worksforme' for the above reasons.
