libvpx @1.7.0: Failed to configure libvpx: configure failure

Reported by: fairytalk Owned by: dbevans (David B. Evans)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.4.2
Keywords: Cc: kencu (Ken), jeremyhu (Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia)
Port: libvpx

Description (last modified by mf2k (Frank Schima))

Hi guys,

libvpx had been failing to configure for approximately a week. port is up to date (2.4.2), I'm running 10.13.4 on an encrypted, journaled, case-sensitive APFS share. Xcode is @9.3 (9E145). MacPorts is located in /opt/macports, next to homebrew (/opt/homebrew). port is ahead in the $PATH and hb has only ever been used for casks.

I get the following message when trying to build libvpx:

Error: Failed to configure libvpx, consult /opt/macports/var/macports/build/_opt_macports_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_macports_release_tarballs_ports_multimedia_libvpx/libvpx/work/libvpx-1.7.0/config.log
Error: Failed to configure libvpx: configure failure: command execution failed
Error: See /opt/macports/var/macports/logs/_opt_macports_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_macports_release_tarballs_ports_multimedia_libvpx/libvpx/main.log for details.
Error: Follow to report a bug.
Error: Processing of port libvpx failed

I checked ticket:56113 and it seemed to configure fine using this:

./configure --prefix=/opt/macports --enable-vp8 --enable-vp9 --enable-internal-stats --enable-pic --enable-postproc --enable-multithread --enable-runtime-cpu-detect --enable-experimental --enable-spatial-svc --enable-shared --disable-install-docs --disable-debug-libs --disable-examples --disable-unit-tests --target=x86_64-darwin-gcc

However I was unable to install it with make install, it returns make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install'. I guess I was overlooking something there.

Finally I ran sudo port -v install ld64 +ld64_xcode like kencu suggested, cleaned once more, and the install was successful. I'm not sure what was wrong but I'm submitting the ticket in hope that it might help other or dbevans. The suggested main.log and config.log are attached. Didn't find an install log for the eventual success, the screen messages were the usual though. Thanks guys.

I guess this is to be expected, since the version of clang in the version of Xcode you have installed produces newer files than the version of ld64 in MacPorts is able to understand. I guess ld64 in MacPorts needs to be updated to Xcode 9.3's version thereof. (Currently, it provides Xcode 8.2.1's version.)

ld: unexpected token: !tapi-tbd-v3 file '/Applications/' for architecture x86_64

Or rather, macOS 10.13 and its SDK contain newer files than Xcode 8.2.1's ld is able to understand.

Use the +ld64_variant of ld64 as a workaround for now.

Same issue running macport 2.4.3 on 10.12.6.

there is talk on the clang mailing list about Apple open-sourcing tapi , if I follow the politics of the correctly

There was ld64 and ld64-latest installed:

port installed | grep ld
  ld64 @3_0 (active)
  ld64-latest @274.2_2+llvm50 (active)

I uninstalled ld64:

# umask 0022 && port -f uninstall ld64
--->  Unable to uninstall ld64 @3_0, the following ports depend on it:
--->  	clang-3.9 @3.9.1_8+analyzer+libstdcxx
Warning: Uninstall forced.  Proceeding despite dependencies.
--->  Deactivating ld64 @3_0
--->  Cleaning ld64
--->  Uninstalling ld64 @3_0
--->  Cleaning ld64

and then it built.

Just for further info, since it seems to be a dependency issue caused by ffmpeg pulling in clang-3.9:
