It built fine on our build server (see https://packages.macports.org/xorg-libX11/) which suggests a problem on your system. Make sure you have the Xcode 8 version of the command line tools installed too.

config.log and main.log attached. How do I verify XCode command line tools are correct version?

Possibly relevant:

  • The xorg-libX11 configure script is hardwired to use /usr/bin/cpp, not cpp from the PATH.
  • md5 /usr/bin/cpp -> 34269fdd32c114870b1114dbd6db4f7d .
  • The failure is on a box that has been upgraded from Yosemite to El Capitan to Sierra.
  • All current XCode and system software updates applied.
  • Attached hexdump appears to show /usr/bin/cpp is a shim, not the actual cpp.
  • xcode-select version 2345.1.
  • xcode-select -p gives /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer .
  • /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/cpp is a shell script which claims in the comments that cpp is deprecated. This script calls xcrun - see ticket #52200.
  • Root can't rename /usr/bin/cpp however I hacked the xorg-libX11 configure script to use /opt/local/bin/cpp-mp-6 instead and it configured & built fine.

/usr/bin/cpp -dM -undef - - < /dev/null|grep unix
/usr/bin/cpp -dM - - < /dev/null|grep unix

both give nothing - apparently the reason for the failure of the configure script which depends on the "unix" definition for it's check.

I've tested the new xorg-libX11 version 1.6.4_0+universal under sierra. It supersedes xorg-libX11 1.6.3 and fixes this problem. As far as I'm concerned this ticket is resolved and can be closed.

Resolution: worksforme
Status: newclosed

There was absolutely nothing in that release that had anything to do with this, and given that nobody else reported this issue, I'm just going to close this.
