Maybe this can help:



If you try to compile VICE for an AMD64/EM64 machine, or you use gcc 4.0, the build fails.


gcc 4.0 is much more picky about the C code.


Get the patches from the Debian bug tracking system #300936 and #295108. The next version of VICE will contain fixes for these issues - not necessarily the same as provided by the debian bug tracking.


The VICE team has confirmed this to be a problem in the VICE versions listed at the beginning of this article. It has been corrected in all subsequent versions


  • Debian bug tracking system #300936.
  • Debian bug tracking system #295108.

BTW: The newest VICE version is 2.1, not 1.14. Maybe there is a problem with fetching the wrong package.

There is a patch for 1.14 for 64bit archs:

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

This problem has existed for over 10 months, and nobody's cared enough to fix it. Removing the package in r61866 ...

If someone wants to put together a new port for the 2.1 version, please do so, but since it's a new major version, it's best to "start from scratch" ... I'll be happy to be the one to commit the new Portfile if someone puts it together (just assign the bug to me).
