Note that the same port builds fine on my Macbook Air (13 inch, mid-2013), which is running the same OS and Xcode versions.

Note also that this appears to be a continuation of #49132, but that it has persisted through three port upgrades and two OS versions.

The pertinent section of the log file indicates that the self test for sb-concurrency, which is part of the (default) +fancy variant, failed:

Please be aware that I have found a fix for this bug. The fix is described here:

Apparently the failure results from a timeout when testing FRLOCK. The test timeout is, by default, 60 seconds. For some reason, on the MacBook it completes in this time but is slower on my Mac Pro. Manually editing the files as described below:

  • improving the timeout value in

sbcl-1.1.7/contrib/sb-concurrency/tests/test-frlock.lisp line 85 from 60 to 240, and

  • decreasing the reader-count, read-count and write-count in the same file,

lines 20 and 22 to half of the values given.

fixes the problem.

I am not savvy enough to create a patch file for this fix, but editing it by hand and then continuing the port install process allows the port to build and install correctly.

More information on this bug - either the OSX Yosemite default settings for Unix sockets, buffers, locks, mutexes, etc. are poorly optimized, or something was screwy regarding these settings for my personal machine, as making such system calls on my 2.4 GHz 12 core Mac Pro is clearly far slower than even on my 1.7 GHz Macbook Air. In any case, creating an /etc/sysctl.conf and using the optimized settings from the following website:

not only completely clears up the sbcl build problem, but the build actually completes several minutes faster now than on the Macbook Pro. This is presumably because the more than 1 million locking mutex system calls that are generated by sbcl's sb-concurrency self tests can now complete without tripping the 60-second watchdog timer.

sbcl-2.0.3 builds in MacPorts, building sbcl-1.3.x is not currently supported.
