While trying the patches from 981780 on sparc64 (ie inconditionally build media/libyuv), i realized that build/gyp.mozbuild has yet another list of possible architectures, and it's lacking some (at least sparc*), which leads to this:

Traceback (most recent call last):

The error occurred while processing the following file:


This file was included as part of processing:


The error was triggered on line 93 of this file:

    gyp_vars['target_arch'] = arches[CONFIG['CPU_ARCH']]

An error was encountered as part of executing the file itself. The error appears to be the fault of the script.

The error as reported by Python is:

    ["KeyError: u'sparc'\n"]
Found it while building 30.0b1, still need to test m-a/m-c
Obvious fix allows me to pass configure, but i dont know if it's neither correct nor if we  want to add more architectures there..
Let's try this first, npotb and all that...

Add sparc64 & sparc

Review of attachment 8423192 [details] [diff] [review]:

That sadly only addresses part of the problem. I have the same problem on s390x.

Let's just simplify the problem. Note this effectively means the value changes for ppc64, but no gyp file is checking for ppc anyways. This works for me on s390x and ppc.

Use CPU_ARCH for unknown target_arch in gyp

Testing it on sparc64 & ppc - anyway, nothing checks for target_arch outside the tier1 archs so that should be fine.

Use CPU_ARCH for unknown target_arch in gyp

still building, but at least it went past the configure step, so that should be good to go.

Use CPU_ARCH for unknown target_arch in gyp

[Approval Request Comment]
Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): regression from a combination of bug 778236 and the use of libyuv on builds without webrtc.
User impact if declined: Failure to build on non-mainstream architectures
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): Tested on Debian builds. Landed on m-i today.
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): Low. It changes how the target_arch gyp variable is deducted from the value of CPU_ARCH from our build system, which, in practice doesn't change the value for tier-1 platforms. Note that technically, this is almost NPOTB, but since it *does* change how the value is derived for android builds (but not the derived value itself, I'm requesting approval here, instead of using the blanket a=npotb)
String or IDL/UUID changes made by this patch: None

Checked on inbound and this looks good so approving now in order to make sure it's in the landing queue for tomorrow's beta.
