#57858 closed defect (fixed)

bison @3.2.4 does not build on PPC Mac OS X 10.5.8, Leopard, because the Java compiler, /opt/local/libexec/gcc/ppc-apple-darwin9/5.5.0/ecj1, does not find an end and compiles and compiles and compiles and compiles, using some swap space

The Portfile does not seem to prescribe a particular compiler, so I am trying to switch to GCC6 and see whether bisoncan be configured.

With GCC6 I get at least in a short time

checking for valgrind... no
checking Valgrind suppression file... 
checking for Java compiler... no
checking for Java virtual machine... java
checking that generated files are newer than configure... done

comment:2 Changed 3 months ago by kencu (Ken)

I think we just dumped the java compiler in gcc6+ as being useless. so it doesn't even try (there isn't one).

If I understand what you're explaining, this command just hangs, and never returns? :

/opt/local/libexec/gcc/ppc-apple-darwin9/5.5.0/ecj1 conftestlib.java -g1 -fbootclasspath=./:/opt/local/share/gcc-5/java/libgcj-5.5.0.jar -foutput-class-dir=. -g1 -fsource=1.5 -ftarget=1.5 -fzip-dependency /opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_nue.de.rsync.macports.org_macports_release_tarballs_ports_devel_bison/bison-runtime/work/.tmp/ccCmqQQG.zip

first thing I would do is try running that command manually in the proper directory and see if it tells you anything useful...

comment:3 Changed 3 months ago by kencu (Ken)

You probably sorted this out already, but for a workaround, I found that deactivating gcc5 fixed the build of bison (by getting gcj out of the path). This should be properly sorted out by forcing it not to look for gcj in the first place, but that's for another day...

In e99a38a7d1946d134d98594dd9523f00c1c7057e/macports-ports (master):

bison: Do not look for java or valgrind

They don't appear to get used anyway.

Closes: #57858

comment:5 Changed 3 months ago by ballapete (Peter Dyballa)

Actually I think that /opt/local/libexec/gcc/ppc-apple-darwin9/5.5.0/ecj1 does not work at all. All the other executables in directory /opt/local/libexec/gcc/ppc-apple-darwin9/5.5.0 produce some kind of output when invoked with -v --help. Even jc1 outputs a long list of options (and it seems to pass the test when the last option and its argument are omitted). ejc1 is completely silent. This is also the case when I simulate configure on the command line. Obviously ejc1 only can consume memory and CPU time.

BTW, configure seems to produce these three files with the given contents for the Java Compiler test:

--> conftest.java:
class conftest     { void foo () { switch ("A") {} } }

--> conftestfail.java:
class conftestfail { void foo () { Runnable r = () -> {}; } }

--> conftestlib.java:
public class conftestlib {
  public static void main (String[] args) {
  }
}

config.log contains at its end:

onfigure:39765: checking for Java compiler
configure:39977: found /opt/local/bin/gcj
configure:40011: found /usr/bin/javac
configure:40064: gcj -C -d . conftestlib.java

comment:6 Changed 3 months ago by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)

I've fixed bison so that it will no longer look for Java, so I consider this ticket closed.

If ecj1 is completely broken, that might need to be filed as a separate ticket against the gcc5 port.

comment:7 Changed 3 months ago by kencu (Ken)

I noticed it was running out of memory doing the compiler test in bison (which says it requires a newer version of java now anyway, BTW).

I think we use gcc5 to build pdftk, with java, don't we? This might just be a specific error with java in bison.

comment:8 Changed 3 months ago by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)

Last I checked it worked for pdftk.

Replying to ryandesign:

I think the GCC Java compilers never worked on PPC. GCC 5 and 6 are not supported any more (7.4 and 8.2 are), so it seems useless to report this bug.

It could not have worked with GCC 5.

I reset my GCC setting to GCC 5 and the build of pdftk led within a minute to abusing all existing virtual memory:

The same failure when I have set:

gcc        mp-gcc6        apple-gcc42 gcc40 gcc42 llvm-gcc42 mp-gcc49 mp-gcc5 mp-gcc6 none

becuase the Portfile seems to dictate the use of GCC5. Main.log attached.

Replying to ballapete:

I think the GCC Java compilers never worked on PPC.

They certainly worked, at least enough to compile pdftk, back in 2004 when the pdftk port was added to MacPorts, before Intel Macs existed. But it certainly could have broken on PowerPC in newer versions of gcc, and I don't know what would be needed to fix it. In any case, this ticket is closed.
