pbc_to_exe: missing runtime dependency
|Reported by:||ligne||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by ligne) (diff)
when running make, pbc_to_exe occasionally fails with the following error:
PackFile_unpack: Buffer length 0 is shorter than PACKFILE_HEADER_BYTES 18. current instr.: 'handle_args' pc 223 (tools/dev/pbc_to_exe.pir:233) make: *** [pbc_to_exe] Error 1 make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
i've not been able to reproduce this consistently, but i think it occurs when pmc_to_exe is invoked as part of the build process, and tries to load Getopt/Obj.pbc before it's been fully compiled. the file exists so open() doesn't fail, but is still zero-length.
