gobject-introspection: Configure failure on Big Sur 11.1 and Xcode 12.3

Description (last modified by mf2k (Frank Schima))

gobject-introspection fails to configure with Big Sur 11.1 and Xcode 12.3 and the latest command line tools installed. It seems to want SDK 11.0 but it should be using SDK 11.1.

Is this a base issue?

:debug:extract SDKROOT='/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/SDKs/MacOSX11.0.sdk'
...
:info:configure checking for gcc... /usr/bin/clang
:info:configure checking whether the C compiler works... no
:info:configure configure: error: in `/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_mports_macports-ports_gnome_gobject-introspection/gobject-introspection/work/gobject-introspection-1.60.2':

:info:configure See `config.log' for more details

Here is what I have installed:

Odd, if the 11.0 SDK is present it should work. It's not present as a directory but missing some of the contents, or something like that?

comment:3 Changed 6 weeks ago by mf2k (Frank Schima)

Hmm. It does appear to lack some files present in the 11.1 SDK directory. Is there a way to fix that? I still think this needs to be fixed in Macports. It should be looking for the 11.1 SDK CLT.

We do want to build for 11.0 if possible. If 11.1 introduces new APIs, binaries won't work for users running 11.0.

comment:5 Changed 6 weeks ago by jmroot (Joshua Root)

The -config binaries not being present shouldn't be a problem though, the error indicates that libSystem can't be found, which should just require MacOSX11.0.sdk/usr/lib/libSystem.tbd.

comment:6 Changed 6 weeks ago by mf2k (Frank Schima)

Yes, something is clearly wrong with my 11.0 setup then.

$ ls -l /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/SDKs/MacOSX11.1.sdk/usr/lib/libSystem.tbd
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  15 Dec 14 13:40 /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/SDKs/MacOSX11.1.sdk/usr/lib/libSystem.tbd -> libSystem.B.tbd

ls: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/SDKs/MacOSX11.0.sdk/usr/lib/libSystem.tbd: No such file or directory

I wonder if installing Xcode 12.3 with the CLT removed the old ones?

That would be quite irritating if so. We'd have to check the SDK for usability somehow, not just its presence.

comment:9 Changed 6 weeks ago by mf2k (Frank Schima)

See #61866.

comment:10 Changed 6 weeks ago by mf2k (Frank Schima)

We don't. base simply needs to set the SDK correctly for macOS 11.1.

comment:11 Changed 6 weeks ago by mf2k (Frank Schima)

I can confirm that changing the SDK to 11.1 in base allows this to build now.
