Description

12 years ago
With a CVS pull of the MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH from 2005-08-30, I noticed that a file
named '$(pdbfile).pdb' is created in my objdir.  This seems like a build system
anomaly since I'd imagine that the shell variable was meant to be expanded first.

I don't know yet if this actually causes any harm.

It seems this file is create during configure phase, just some file
created/modified dates (from depend build):
$(pdbfile).pdb created 13:21:33, last modified 12:06:59
To compare some other files from the toplevel-dir:
config.log created 13:21:16, last modified 12:06:59
config.status created 13:21:59, last modified 12:07:14
mozilla-config.h created/last modified 12:07:00

darin: Do you still see this bug? I no longer see this $(pdbfile).pdb here.
http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/configure.in#1848

Looks like it's created during the compile tests in configure, since we set CFLAGS like so.  I'm not particularly sure why we set CFLAGS that way.

I'm guessing this is no longer an issue.
