build failure on FreeBSD 9.1

Kazu Yamamoto (山本和彦)
Hi,

GHC head cannot be build on FreeBSD 9.1:

----
libraries/hpc/ghc.mk:3: libraries/hpc/dist-boot/build/.depend-v.haskell: No such file or directory
compiler/ghc.mk:426: compiler/stage1/build/.depend-v.haskell: No such file or directory
"cp" -p utils/hsc2hs/dist/build/tmp/hsc2hs inplace/lib/bin/hsc2hs
utils/hsc2hs/ghc.mk:15: *** Do not know how to prependLibraryPath on freebsd.  Stop.
gmake: *** [all] Error 2
----

I can build GHC head on Linux.

It's trying to do the equivalent of setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH or
DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH (see rules/library-path.mk). What's the right thing to
do on the BSDs?


Thanks
Ian

OK. I understand.

It is LD_LIBRARY_PATH. I modified to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH in FreeBSD
and confirmed that it works!

Thank you. Building now works. But "validate" fails.

I can't reproduce this. My ghc-pkg can find libffi:

$ ldd "/home/ian/ghc/git/ghc/bindisttest/install   dir/lib/ghc-7.7.20130319/bin/ghc-pkg" | grep ffi
        libffi.so.6 => /home/ian/ghc/git/ghc/bindisttest/install   dir/lib/ghc-7.7.20130319/bin/../rts-1.0/libffi.so.6 (0x00007fd2faf6e000)

The library exists:

$ ls -l "/home/ian/ghc/git/ghc/bindisttest/install   dir/lib/ghc-7.7.20130319/bin/../rts-1.0/libffi.so.6"

It was installed earlier, by:

This fix does not solve the problem and "validate" still has the same
problem.

Also, it appeared that after building GHC, inplace/lib/bin/ghc-stage2
has the same problem:

        % ldd ghc-stage2 | grep ffi
        libffi.so.6 => not found (0)

OK, I've just pushed another attempt; can you let me know whether HEAD
now works for you, please?

That's expected. All the Haskell .so's should also be not found.
That's why inplace/bin/ghc-stage2 sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH.


Thanks

I understand.

Build finished on FreeBSD and "ghc-stage2" works:

What is the version of your devel/libffi port?  Could not adding
--with-system-libffi and related flags to the configuration phase fix
the problem?  Note that you can experience nice problems if the
version of the in-tree and system libffi.so files differ.

Hmm, I'm not sure what's going wrong then. I think that this will need
someone who can reproduce it to debug it.

It works for me (i.e. the "binary-dist" and "test_bindist" targets do
not give me errors) if I use the --with-system-libffi flags, and
ldd(1) shows that everything is okay:

$ ldd bindisttest/HelloWorld
bindisttest/HelloWorld:
        libiconv.so.3 => /usr/local/lib/libiconv.so.3 (0x28126000)
        libgmp.so.10 => /usr/local/lib/libgmp.so.10 (0x2821e000)
        libm.so.5 => /lib/libm.so.5 (0x28281000)
        librt.so.1 => /usr/lib/librt.so.1 (0x2829b000)
        libffi.so.6 => /usr/local/lib/libffi.so.6 (0x282a0000)
        libc.so.7 => /lib/libc.so.7 (0x282a6000)

$ pkg info -x libffi
libffi-3.0.11                  Foreign Function Interface

However, if I do not use --with-system-libffi, but libffi.so.6 is
present on the system, the following happens at gmake binary-dist
(just for your information):

$ gmake binary-dist

Yes, I saw your commit later :-)

Great!  I have just pushed a minor fix for my updated builder clients
on -head so now they can hopefully produce working builds.

3.0.9.

Yes. When I added --with-system-libffi
--with-ffi-includes=/usr/local/include
--with-ffi-libraries=/usr/local/lib, this problem does not happen.

Summary: building GHC head succeeds both on FreeBSD and Mac. But
installing GHC head fails both on FreeBSD and Mac. This is probably
because no installed scripts define (DY)LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

If --with-system-libffi and etc are specified, both building and
installation succeeds on FreeBSD. "validate" with these options still
freezes:

        http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/7652

Note that I set "sudo -w vfs.timestamp_precision=1" on FreeBSD
according to:

I tried to install the vanilla binary tarball that the builder client
created this morning [1] (i386), but I got the following errors at
install:

However, the builder itself happily passes the binary-dist and
test_bindist targets.
