Does not build on clang with GMP

Description (last modified by jkeenan) (diff)

Parrot was building with llvm/clang for a while, but recently it doesn't anymore. It fails when trying to link because it detects several of the GMP symbols are defined more than once. I do not know why it is having these problems, and I am not sure whether the issue is in GMP, Clang, or Parrot

I have been able to build with clang using this configuration command:

perl Configure.pl --cc=clang --ld=clang --link=clang --without-gmp

Can you attach output showing what happens when you try to build with clang and do not exclude GMP?

I'd like to understand better what you mean by "detects several of the GMP symbols are defined more then once."

Thank you very much.

I used to observe a similar problem, which I described here:  http://lists.parrot.org/pipermail/parrot-dev/2009-June/002407.html

These days (with parrot-1.6.0 and a much newer clang) I get other linking errors, also related to gmp (which also go away with --without-gmp):

i can't reproduce this. Fedora 14 x86_64, gmp 4.3.1, clang 2.8. it looks like a parser bug in (a rather old version of) clang.

is this ok to close?

I just tested this on my machine with a more recent clang and it does appear to work now. I'm going to chalk this up to an old bug in clang and close this ticket. Thanks ligne!
