This bug report addresses two problems:

1) On lib64 architectures like x86-64 (but also ppc64 and sparc64), 64-bit 
libraries got to */lib64 instead of the regular */lib directories.

2) Implement VARARGS_ASSIGN with the standard va_copy() macro on

Hi, I forgot to mention the patch also adds -fPIC required to build DSO on 
x86-64. However, the way it's done is surely not the cleanest one.

The bottom of the file looks corrupted, too. Could one of the 
developers advise Gwenole on what might have gone wrong? Thanks -

I checked this in.
I'm sorry it missed 1.4b

the va_copy change sort of conflicted with
a change for bug 187180, please make sure
that the way i resolved it works.

timeless: is this ready to be marked FIXED, then?
I'm uncomfortable resolving bugs for things I can't test.
I'd rather Gwenole resolve it.

This checkin has broken the build of the JS shell on Windows.
I get an error on WinNT4.0 on this part of the build:

That was part of this checkin -

I'm thinking the JS's build scripts use of $(LIB) is ill advised. LIB is also
the list of directories used by the linker to find libraries. But it look as if
the JS build system uses to determine the directory to put libraries for

I'm not sure what the best way to fix things are. Just remove that change, and
let the libs go into the default distribution directory as they currently are?
Or rename lib to something like LIBDIST or otherwise less conflicting.
This is blocking me from publishing the next JS1.5 release candidate -
Cc'ing bryner for a little help, if he can help.

This should do the trick. Sorry I didn't see this before, but I got confused
thinking I was looking at the original code when I was looking at the code
after the patch.

Bottom line, LIB was a poor choice of a name due to the conflicts, renamed to

LIB->LIBDIR patch checked into trunk
The new fix has enabled me to build the JS shell on Windows again!
Both the debug and optimized shell built sucessfully.

Furthermore, I ran the JS testsuite against the fix on Linux RH7.2,
Mac OSX, and WinNT4.0 and observed no test regresssions in either
the debug or optimized JS shell -
I tried checking into the 1.4 branch, but I don't have access. So if someone
else can check this in, that would be great, or if I get access soon I'll go
ahead and do it.
LIB->LIBDIR patch checked into branch now.

Adding verified1.4 keyword. That is, I have verified that the patches
to these files are the same on the trunk and the -rMOZILLA_1_4_BRANCH:


The patch to the following config file is only on the trunk, however.
That is normal, since it is only used in the build of the standalone
JS shell:


In fact, AFAIK, the directory mozilla/js/src/config/ is never
tagged in Mozilla branches -
