Description

At least, I presume this is happening because I happen to be tickling configure into turning on -std=gnu0x.  (I'm tweaking the build to pass -marm and a few other things.)

In the directory  /Users/jlebar/code/moz/B2G/objdir-gecko/netwerk/protocol/device
The following command failed to execute properly:

So...what should we do here?  We can disable gnu++0x in gecko, but there's a lot of inertia towards C++11 at Mozilla.

Can we patch this file instead?

Unfortunately it seems like the right way to detect the existence of the char16_t type is in configure.  (You can either test for char16_t directly, or you can try to include <cuchar> and, if that exists, test for __STDC_UTF_16__ [1].)  I don't know how to do such a check in this file.

Sure, plus the relevant C hack, I can do that if we think that's OK.

There's a non-ifdefed extern "C" in that file, and extern "C" is not valid in C.

mwu, how do we land this?  Should I fork the repository, or try to get it into caf, or what?

That file already has the C++11 guards, so I'm clearly not using it...

Did you use a different mozconfig or modify the default one?

Comment 12

I modified the default one (gonk-misc/default-gecko-config).

Whatever you do, don't remove the $EXTRA_INCLUDE from this line -
export CXXFLAGS="-DMOZ_ENABLE_JS_DUMP $EXTRA_INCLUDE"

Comment 14

Oh, duh.  I did CXXFLAGS="..." instead of CXXFLAGS="$CXXFLAGS ...".

I'd even hit this once before.

Sorry, Mike.

Perhaps I should add a warning to the top/bottom of the mozconfig.
