at-spi2-core build fails under Mojave 10.14.2 : "Otool does not work"

Description (last modified by kencu (Ken))

A port install of 'libvirt' and 'virt-manager':

$ port -sv install libvirt virt-manager

(I have Qemu installed) failed building the 'at-spi2-core' dependency with:

Otool is provided by cctools . I am not sure exactly what it is meant to do (no Otools man-page is installed!) but apparently meson is not happy with however it is or is not doing it.

I guess one MUST use virtualbox on Mac OS X because Qemu is so limited and libvirt + virt-manager do not build?

libvirt and at-spi2-core do build on Mojave:

There's no package for virt-manager -- so not positive about that one just now. Probably a license thing.

So it appears to be something different on your system that could be sorted out.

To get you going, though, any idea why you're struggling to build it from source port -s instead of just installing the pre-built binary from the buildbot?

otool (note the command is lower case) comes with the cctools port, but Xcode CLI also provides /usr/bin/otool.

I have at-spi2-core installed on several Mojave machines.

Oops, this was because I had an experimental build of GNU Binutils (containing objdump) in my $PATH . Reading more about llvm-otool once I located the documentation for it. Sorry! Closing as not a bug.
