I do not have access to Xcode 4.2 pre-releases and so far it should be considered unsupported as it is unreleased software.

I guess the upstream Xcode project is just not yet ready for this as it assumes gcc-4.2 to be available.

I tried to build MacVim using clang but unfortunately I wasn't able to open any vim window with this build. I tried the troubleshooting instructions but couldn't find anything helpful in the logs. It just doesn't open any window.

Same problem occurs on Lion 10.7.2 with Xcode 4.2 (released version).

Attached Portfile diff and patches to fix the build issues with missing GCC 4.2 (based on upstream fix at https://github.com/b4winckler/macvim/commit/54b2b3cf5e39b12181d2ede9cc49f5601a5ffaba).

The problem with clang version not opening any windows remains, tho.

BTW. it works using llvm-gcc (and my patches), i.e.:

sudo port install MacVim configure.compiler=llvm-gcc-4.2

Thank you for the patch!

Committed in r86143 in addition with switching to llvm-gcc-4.2 if clang is selected.

Reopening. We need to figure out *why* it's failing with clang and fix/report the underlying issue.

comment:16 Changed 8 years ago by jeremyhu (Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia)

Does it still happen with the clang in XCode 4.3?

MacVim @7.3.snapshot64_0 builds without issue using Xcode-4.3.x for me.

comment:20 Changed 8 years ago by skymoo (Adam Mercer)

Sorry, just to clarify, I commented out

if {${configure.compiler} == "clang"} {
    configure.compiler llvm-gcc-4.2
}

from the Portfile and it built fine using clang.

comment:21 Changed 8 years ago by raimue (Rainer Müller)

The compilation has always been working but the resulting MacVim does not work correctly in a way where it would not open new windows. Upstream also compiles using llvm-gcc. I just tried with Xcode 4.3 and although it builds, it still does not work correctly.

Replying to raimue@…:

Not according to the title nor the contents of this radar ;)

Unfortunately upstream doesn't really give much info... hmm...

I just compiled snapshot 64 of MacVim with clang from Xcode 4.4 on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. The build went fine and the resulting binary can open new windows just fine.

MacVim is now being built with clang when using Xcode >= 4.4 as of r95886.
