Subject RC1 build failures
Date Wed, 10 Sep 2003 13:16:10 GMT

This happens on FreeBSD (minotaur) and Solaris, probably because you
don't have GNU make there. Here is what it looks like on FreeBSD:

> make
"./build/", line 255: Could not find /.deps
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue

This is caused by two problems:

* $(builddir) is empty, so make looks for /.deps instead of
  ./build/.deps, but this can be corrected by replacing $(builddir) with
  $(top_builddir), or correcting $(builddir) definition.

* there is no .deps file. Top level Makefile has a target for .deps file
  (creating empty file with touch), but failure is triggered when
  parsing file -- way before targets are considered at all.

Linux also doesn't create build/.deps file, but this isn't fatal (make
only displays warning). I'll try to dig into this more later today, but
if somebody here has more experience with BSD make, then please feel
free to beat me on this.
