Running the configure script ends on an error to the tune of ~"ltconfig can't use --no-verify without host given" from the webtools area. The system is a DEC Alpha 21164 with an SX164 mobo. The host type comes up as alpha-pca56-unknown, which configure does not seem to like. I worked around this by using: ./configure alpha-ev56-linux And configure worked without error.
Steve, want to move this off to M15?
Brian, would you like to fix this? I am guessing this is a shortcoming of config.guess, but I do not know for sure.
Can you provide the output from 'uname -a' for me? Running mozilla/build/autoconf/config.guess would be helpful too. Also, which do you want it to be (alpha-pca56-linux or alpha-ev56-linux)?
Here is the output from the scripts as requested: [mike@alpha mozilla]$ build/autoconf/config.guess alphapca56-unknown-linux-gnu [mike@alpha mozilla]$ uname -a Linux alpha.audiowarehouse.sk.ca 2.2.12 #1 Tue Oct 5 16:43:04 CST 1999 alpha unknown

Ok, something's amiss here. The output of mozilla/build/autoconf/config.guess is correct but that's only used for the browser not for webtools. The only configure script I see under mozilla/webtools is for bonsai but it doesn't do any host checking. And neither the main nor bonsai's configure script uses ltconfig which comes from libtool if I'm not mistaken.
good eye, Chris. I skipped right over the webtools bit. Mike - what exactly are you trying to build?
Email from Mike: I'm trying to build the M13 release, the entire Mozilla source tree. I run ./configure, and got the errors attached in my last message. After explicitly stating alpha-ev56... as the build and target of configure, I then run make from the top of the source tree. I get many casting warnings, but it compiles. So again: I am building all of Mozilla M13 on a DEC Alpha 21164.

Mike, can you attach a complete build log as well as config.log?
Email from Mike: Date: Sat, 5 Feb 2000 20:19:46 -0600 (CST) From: Mike Warnecke <email@example.com> ---------------------------------------- I'll attach a script of what happens when I run configure from within the mozilla source dir. It fails on webshell/embed/gtk, but you can have a look for yourself. -------- Mike for now, can you try building as: ./configure --disable-gtk-mozilla ? If that works, try copying build/autoconf/config.sub to webshell/embed/gtk/ and then run your build as you normally do. Since the GtkMozilla widget is basically a separate project, it has its own set of config* scripts. They are not in sync with the main set and it's going to take a bit to merge them.
All 4 copies of config.guess/config.sub in the tree should be updated to the versions in the official master repository: cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs co config This fixes a misdetection bug on Linux/PPC. Franz.
Franz, good idea. wtc, can I have permission to check in a recent version of config.guess & config.sub to the NSPR tip?
cls: yes, you can check in a recent version of config.guess & config.sub to the NSPR tip.
After much delay, our config.* files have been updated to the latest cvs snapshot of the GNU master config.* files. Thanks, Franz.
