gcc44, gcc45, gcc46, gcc48, gcc49, gcc5: error trying to exec 'ecj1': execvp: No such file or directory

Description

I'm trying to add gcc44 support to pdftk (see #15420) but I'm running into this problem before I can build anything:

gcj-mp-4.4: error trying to exec 'ecj1': execvp: No such file or directory

I'm using gcc44 @4.4.1_0, and I see the same issue with gcc45 @4.5-20091001_0+java.

gcj-mp-4.5: error trying to exec 'ecj1': execvp: No such file or directory

This may be similar to #13553.

Has duplicate #22692.

Just two days ago I installed pdftk with its gcc42 dependency. The gcc compile time of about one day (iMac G4 with 1 GHz) annoyed me, expecially since I already had gcc43 installed (which seems to be an Inkscape dependancy). Following Joshua Root's message to macport-users (sent 22 Jul 2010 08:37:20 +1000) I discovered there has already been much discussion on having pdftk use a later gcc.

I don't know how to use gcj directly, and I don't really intend to learn it, but it seems like my gcj-mp-4.3 has got the same defect:

$ gcj-mp-4.3 hello.java 
gcj-mp-4.3: error trying to exec 'ecj1': execvp: No such file or directory

This is what gcj-mp-42 says, in comparison:

$ gcj-mp-4.2 hello.java 
Undefined symbols:
  "_main", referenced from:
      __start in crt1.o
ld: symbol(s) not found
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

The hello.java is a simple "hello world" program and can be compiled with regular "java".

This comment may not be of much use - it is meant to be a verbatim "CcMe!".

Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard
Xcode 3.1.4 (with MacPorts patched to use gcc42)

comment:5 Changed 10 years ago by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)

Yes, I'm aware of all these things. As you see above I already fixed gcc46 and gcc45 so their gcj's now work; I should now be able to apply gentoo's patches to pdftk to let it build with those versions of gcc; see #15420. Unfortunately I was thus far unable to backport my changes to gcc45 and gcc46 to gcc43 and gcc44 because I could not figure out how to tell gcc where I wanted it to put ecj.jar, and without this, gcc43 and gcc44 tried to put ecj.jar in the same place and would thus conflict with one another, which isn't ok.

Also the gcc48 port is affected by this bug. I tried to compile a Hello World program with gcj-mp-4.8 from gcc48 @4.8.1_3 on an up-to-date MacPorts installation on OS X 10.8.5 (Mountain Lion) x86_64 and got as well:

$ gcj-mp-4.8 HelloWorldApp.java 
gcj-mp-4.8: error trying to exec 'ecj1': execvp: No such file or directory

In comparison, gcj-mp-4.7 said:

gcj-mp-4.7 HelloWorldApp.java
Undefined symbols for architecture x86_64:
  "_main", referenced from:
     implicit entry/start for main executable
ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

and javac compiled the file without any error message.

The gcc-gcj package seems to be also affected by this problem as you can see by the comments on: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gcc-gcj/?setlang=de&comments=all

For me a 'make check' in gettext-0.14.5 (it's a starting point for me, I need libintl and libiconv since Apple can't provide fat libraries in /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk/usr/lib) failed with:

gcj: error trying to exec 'ecj1': execvp: No such file or directory
msgfmt: compilation of Java class failed, please try --verbose or set $JAVAC

This failure can be avoided by telling configure that JAVAC=javac.

comment:14 in reply to:  13 Changed 7 years ago by ballapete (Peter Dyballa)

Interestingly when I use gcj from a Fink installation, this error does not appear! This happens with versions 4.5.4, 4.6.4, 4.7.3, and 4.8.2.

I performed these tests by configuring gettext to use /sw/bin/gcj via PATH. When 'make check' had finished, I installed the new version of GCC and gcj and then repeated the 'make check'. So every time a different version of gcj was used for the tests – and each succeeded!

Any chance of applying the gcc44/gcc45/gcc46 fix to gcc48? This bug affects port nds2-client.

As partially already mentioned above this issue is present for gcc48 and gcc49 as well. This surfaces when looking at #37580, a blocker ticket for #33919.

I'd like to test the pdftk-2.02-src.zip after this problem is fixed.

Note: I have successfully built pdftk-2.02-src.zip with Ubuntu 14.10 gcj-jdk (4.9) just now. I'm sure solving this issue will also solve pdftk issue.

It looks like this (dirty) hack can be applied. http://www.kunugiken.com/os-x/compiling-pdftk-for-snow-leopard
