Subject Re: Cross-compilation failure due to gen_test_char
Date Thu, 21 Nov 2013 19:27:57 GMT
Hi Günter,

I thought this is a new issue introduced in apr-1.5.0, but it turns out this functionality
was passed along from httpd and the problem is most probably well-known to many of you.

Please note that not only GNU build is affected. This issue unfortunately needs to be addressed
for each build system separately.

If someone asked me regarding a possible solution, I'd prefer to have 'apr_escape_test_char.h'
pre-generated in the tree for all the operating systems under the 'arch' directory respectively.
This would need to be done by the maintainer once in a while and seems to me much easier/cleaner
than having 'gen_test_char' integrated into the common build routine.

correct - are you up to provide a patch to the configure script?
we need to do something with vars like CC_FOR_BUILD etc. - but 
unfortunately I'm not so fluent with configure scripts ;-)

BTW. we need same also for httpd - and I did at some time a
 new hack to 
configure which I wanted to discuss - but I cant find ATM ...

greets, Günter.
