[Mac OS X 10.2.8] Unable to build rwstderr.cat (no gencat utility)
------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: STDCXX-109
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/STDCXX-109
     Project: STDCXX
        Type: Bug
  Components: Build  
 Environment: Mac OS X 10.2.8/Darwin 6.8 with GCC 3.1
    Reporter: Andrew Black


When the make process gets to the point where it tries to build the rwstderr.cat file, the
make process fails with

gencat rwstderr.cat /Volumes/Orion/Work/stdcxx/src/rwstderr.msg
/bin/sh: gencat: command not found
make[2]: *** [rwstderr.cat] Error 127
make[1]: *** [lib] Error 2
make: *** [libstd] Error 2

The most obvious cause is that there is no gencat utility installed on the system in the $PATH
hierarchy.  I have not searched for the gencat utility outside of the $PATH hierarchy at this
point in time, though it would make sense to do so.  As this utility is referenced as a part
of the makefile rules, it would be difficult at best to control logic through the characterization
tests.

A possible way to detect if there is an accessable copy of gencat would be to use the which
command, redirecting the output to /dev/null, and using the return code to detect the location.

Another possible tactic would be to make the failed execution of gencat a non fatal problem
(which likely would result in other problems if it failed in other circumstances), then to
touch the output file when done so that a file is present (if empty) to be used in building
the library.
