Hi Dave,

Thanks for taking care. I have taken some notes of the hiccups that happened during "build-couchdb".
I used the build-couchdb script from iriscouch.

The build stopped 3 times and needed some small fixes:

When build stops at erlang

1. Edit erts/emulator/

  $(OBJDIR)/%.o: beam/%.c
-       $(CC) $(subst -O2, $(GEN_OPT_FLGS), $(CFLAGS)) $(INCLUDES) -c $< -o $@
+       $(CC) $(INCLUDES) $(subst -O2, $(GEN_OPT_FLGS), $(CFLAGS)) -c $< -o $@

Error was:

beam/erl_bif_re.c:921: error: 'PCRE_EXTRA_LOOP_LIMIT' undeclared (first use in 
this function)
beam/erl_bif_re.c:921: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
beam/erl_bif_re.c:921: error: for each function it appears in.)
beam/erl_bif_re.c:923: error: 'pcre_extra' has no member named 'loop_limit'
beam/erl_bif_re.c:926: error: 'pcre_extra' has no member named 'loop_limit'
beam/erl_bif_re.c:927: error: 'pcre_extra' has no member named 'loop_limit'
beam/erl_bif_re.c:930: error: 'pcre_extra' has no member named 'restart_data'
beam/erl_bif_re.c:931: error: 'pcre_extra' has no member named 'restart_flags'

When build stops at icu

1. Edit configure:

- *-arch*ppc*|*-arch*i386*|*-arch*x86_64*) ac_cv_c_bigendian=universal;;
+ *-arch*ppc*) ac_cv_c_bigendian=yes;;

Error was:

header_size mismatch

When build stops at couched

1. Edit

changing line 70 of ../dependencies/couchdb/src/couchdb/priv/ from:

HELP2MAN_OPTION=--no-info --help-option="-h" --version-option="-V"


HELP2MAN_OPTION=--no-info --help-option="-h" --version-option="-V" --no-discard-stderr
