Subject [jira] [Updated] (COUCHDB-162) improve configure script's ability to find erl_driver.h
Date Sun, 17 Apr 2011 16:33:05 GMT


Paul Joseph Davis updated COUCHDB-162:

    Attachment: 0001-Automatically-detect-erl_driver.h-location.patch

This automatically pulls the Erlang include directory using the same logic as Rebar does.
Basically just runs a couple Erlang commands and then patches together the directory structure.

Windows support is not included.

> Hi, if I configure and install Erlang with a custom --prefix=/path/to/erlang, CouchDB's
configure script finds `erl` and `erlc` from the environment, but it usually needs to be told
about the location or erl_driver.h:
> ./configure --with-erlang=/path/to/erlang/lib/erlang/usr/include
> It'd be nice if the configure script could check that location automatically, e.g. determining
/path/to/erlang by stripping bin/erl off the path to `erl` that it found earlier.  
> Alternatively, I think --with-erlang ought to be modified to take the path to the base
of the Erlang installation, rather than the exact path to the location of the folder containing
erl_driver.h.  Best,
> Adam
