12663build failure on Tiger, plus fix
- Aug 3, 2011I don't know if this is a bug or intended behavior, but I can no longer
build on Tiger PPC (yes, I know... but I'm stuck with it).
This happened when Lion branch was merged in, i.e., in commit
I have found a fix, however. You just need to open up these two files,
found in the cloned repository, in vim:
In each one, there are a couple of lines (maybe more, I forgot) where
GCC_VERSION is set to 4.2. Delete each instance of those lines in each
file. Alternatively, change the value to 4.0 in every instance in both
files. Whichever method one uses, it seems to then build fine.
I have no idea if this messes up something else that hasn't manifested
yet. I have no idea if this is the proper fix either. The GitHub page
shows that the offending lines in each file are straight additions,
rather than changes from a previous value of 4.0.
For the record: I am pleased and very grateful that I've been able to
build MacVim on Tiger thus far. I hope that what I found is a small
bug, easily fixable (perhaps by a switch that detects whether
GCC_VERSION 4.2 is a good idea on one's system?). It seems, to
non-programmer such as myself, that this was a tiny oversight that got
lost in the shuffle, and probably affects everyone not using XCode 4.
