I started by deleting my old directory and doing a fresh get from the
repository so there was nothing left over from a previous build. It
if something is broken then. For example, "--configure-option=-O2"
is showing up in the
command line of gcc when one of the test programs is built by the
script in libraries/base. I assume that this should just have been "-
The configure script fails because gcc barfs on the unrecognized option.
So no new dependencies have been introduced in the HEAD build as I
understand it. Anyone else have problems building HEAD in the last
of days. I know it's not just me; it was reported to me by another
using macports to build HEAD.
