No rule to make target `../../gfx/ots/src/libmozots
.a', needed by `libgkmedias .a .desc'. Stop .
This happens once in a while on my buildbot, where make clean is ran if the build succeeds otherwise the objdir is let as-is. It happens on builds that previously failed or not. objdir/gfx/ots/src contains all the objfiles and libmozots.a.desc but not libmozots.a. Removing objdir "fixes" it until it happens again. rnewman also saw it on macos. Such occurences (but i have way more in the backlog, i can dig for all of them) http://buildbot.rhaalovely.net/builders/mozilla-central-amd64/builds/399/steps/build/logs/stdio http://buildbot.rhaalovely.net/builders/comm-central-i386/builds/172/steps/build/logs/stdio
FTR, this comes from .deps/libs being generated at inconvenient times.
A change in that timeframe probably triggered it for that occurence : https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=fb3036d9b9&tochange=64187d60fa
This routinely occurs on my Mac as of yesterday, regardless of blowing away objdir/gfx. Next up will be blowing away the entire objdir. I saved objdir/gfx from my first failed build, if you want a look.

You need to remove the $objdir/layout/media/.deps/libs file if you want to avoid removing the entire objdir.
This is a more elegant approach to bug 644608, which solves issues with missing files by using the same logic as compilation dependencies (thus using mddepend.pl). <none>
Changes since last patch: - safer mkdir - don't include directories in dependencies - try to remove as much commands as possible, including wrappers such as distcc or ccache

The same failure happened when building aurora tonight, so a bit after the last m-c->aurora uplift.
Comment on attachment 626715 [details] [diff] [review] Make expandlibs commands generate dependencies like gcc does Review of attachment 626715 [details] [diff] [review]: ----------------------------------------------------------------- ::: config/expandlibs_exec.py @@ +314,5 @@ > + if not options.depend: > + return > + ensureParentDir(options.depend) > + with open(options.depend, 'w') as depfile: > + print >>depfile, options.target, ':', ' '.join(dep for dep in deps if os.path.isfile(dep) and dep != options.target) I'm not a big fan of just using commas here. Use a string with formatting instead.

This caused SeaMonkey Bug 763143
This has also broken Thunderbird builds, with a similar error, at least on my machine, using pymake on windows. Presumably, similar changes need to be made to comm-central/config/config.mk and rules.mk?
