Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-420) Configuration scripts should check for standard C++ headers using g++ instead of gcc.
Date Fri, 18 May 2007 22:29:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/STDCXX-420?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12497063

Martin Sebor commented on STDCXX-420:
-------------------------------------

Because we're using -nostdinc++ to eliminate them from the preprocessor search path (see $BUILDDIR/include/config.log).
We don't want to find them. The answer to your next question I anticipate is coming: "Then
why do we look for them?" is that we used to want to find and use them with some compilers
in the past but ran into problems due to clashes with the native C++ Standard Library implementation
and so there is no such compiler today. I think this part of the infrastructure (checking
for the C++ libc headers) could be removed.
