Bug #40678 Cross compile fails
Submitted: 2007-03-01 09:53 UTC Modified: 2007-03-01 11:24 UTC
From: errol at issi dot co dot za Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: Compile Failure
PHP Version: 5.2.1 OS: Linux 2.6.20 on ARM
Private report: No CVE-ID: None
 [2007-03-01 09:53 UTC] errol at issi dot co dot za
I am cross compiling V5.2.1 for the ARM using gcc 4.1.2 on a SuSE linux 10.2 host.

The compile proceeds normally except that it attempts to run tests but these fail as it is a cross compile and so the compile stops. I can get around it by removing the 'exit 1;' from the configure script but it would be better if the script worked directly in this case.

I did not have the same problem when I compiled 5.2.0 in the same way!

Is there a way of switching off the tests when cross compiling?

Reproduce code:
Problem code in configure - there are others as well!

  echo $ac_n "checking for working ttyname_r() implementation""... $ac_c" 1>&6
echo "configure:78868: checking for working ttyname_r() implementation" >&5
  if test "$cross_compiling" = yes; then
    { echo "configure: error: can not run test program while cross compiling" 1>&2; exit 1; }

Expected result:
Successful compile and maybe a warning if tests are not able to be done

Actual result:
checking for working ttyname_r() implementation... configure: error: can not run test program while cross compiling
