mkdepend crashes while compiling freetype
It also crashes when compiling other sources that include freetype headers. For some reason we're dividing by zero when parsing some macros.
instead of dividing by zero, set the result to the largest integer it can hold
What file is being compiled when mkdepend crashes? I'm a little leery of changing the mkdepend sources independently, since I'm pretty certain it is a straight import of external code (FreeBSD stuff, perhaps?)
CVS logs say it's from X11, but they also say we've taken local patches: http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvslog.cgi?file=mozilla/config/mkdepend/main.c&rev=HEAD&mark=3.7
It appears to crash anywhere ftconfig.h is included, while evaluating "FT_SIZEOF_INT (32 / FT_CHAR_BIT)." So there are two bugs here. First being FT_CHAR_BIT is defined to be 0, which is wrong. It appears to expect CHAR_BIT to be defined in <limits.h> /* `CHAR_BIT' (defined in limits.h) gives the number of bits in a */ /* `char' type. */ #ifndef FT_CHAR_BIT #define FT_CHAR_BIT CHAR_BIT #endif The second problem being that mkdepend crashes when it encounters this, giving no useful error message.

Without this patch (and just using the CHAR_BIT=8 patch in Makefile.in), i continue to crash when building cairo.

I think the right solution is for mkdepend to report an error if you try to divide by zero.
