Subject: GCJ 4.9.3 on mips64el-linux failing to build Ant.
Date: Sat, 17 Oct 2015 19:58:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I’m trying to build Ant on mips64el-linux with GCJ 4.9.3.  (I’m doing
this to bootstrap IcedTea on MIPS, which needs Ant to be built.)  This
works just fine on x86_64 and i686, but it fails with odd errors on
mips64el.  Here is the complete build output on the MIPS build machine:

The very first error is this:

    1. ERROR in /tmp/nix-build-ant-1.9.4.drv-0/apache-ant-1.9.4/src/main/org/apache/tools/bzip2/ (at line 121)
    QSORT_STACK_SIZE cannot be resolved to a variable

This is quite odd because QSORT_STACK_SIZE is defined on line 116 as

    private static final int QSORT_STACK_SIZE = 1000;

The following errors are all similar and complain about various other
undefined names.

GCJ is built with the latest version of ECJ published here:

We’re using the ‘javac’ wrapper template from Gentoo:

Is ECJ or GCJ known to not be functional on mips64el or must I have done
something wrong in configuring or building it on this platform?

I’d be very happy for any hints.
