This resolves the linking error.

Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
The IBM XLC/C++ compilers are very picky about the constness of array size.
But kDefaultGroupSize is already const. Would moving it out of the header file into the cpp file fix the error as well? It doesn't need to be declared in the class at all.
(In reply to comment #4) > But kDefaultGroupSize is already const. Yes. I don't understand why, but the patch makes libmail.so link successfully on AIX and mGroupSize is initialized with 60K. When I need porting changes I prefer minimal (or none?) impact first. > Would moving it out of the header file > into the cpp file fix the error as well?

I don't want kDefaultGroupSize to be visible - there's no need for it, so it's better for it not to be visible. So moving the declaration would be improving the code, as well as fixing the compiler error.
Comment on attachment 425806 [details] [diff] [review] additional const cast keeps visibility of kDefaultGroupSize I can add a comment that the const cast is needed to workaround the IBM VisualAge Compiler.
(In reply to comment #9) > (From update of attachment 425806 [details] [diff] [review]) > I can add a comment that the const cast is needed to workaround the IBM > VisualAge Compiler. I'd still rather see the declaration moved to be more private, with less scope. And those kinds of comments always decrease my faith in the compiler :-)
Proposal No. 1
Moved static const member kDefaultGroupSize from header to .cpp else the linker cannot resolve kDefaultGroupSize within SetGroupSize member function's ? : operator.
Comment on attachment 425832 [details] [diff] [review] resolves the linker error fix checked in, thx, Uli.
fixed on the trunk, that is. I'm guessing you'd like this for the 3.0x branch as well?

Comment on attachment 425832 [details] [diff] [review] resolves the linker error I'll land this for 3.0x as well, tomorrow, if I don't forget...
Attachment #425832 - Flags: approval-thunderbird3.0.2? → approval-thunderbird3.0.2+
Whiteboard: [ checkin to comm-1.9.1 ]
Checked into comm-1.9.1: http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/comm-1.9.1/rev/9f833ebcf0bf
Verified fixed by code inspection (simple move of variable) and the fact that the tree still builds etc.
(In reply to comment #17) > Verified fixed by code inspection (simple move of variable) and the fact that > the tree still builds etc. And builds fine on AIX verified yesterday with a "nightly" build just before the 3.0.2 RELEASE version bump.
