Mr Diegel Sir -
I assume that you stopped libpng at 1.2.52 because at 1.2.53 it fails the 'make check' step ?
I just discovered through process of elimination that libpng 1.4.16 makes (with your edit of libtool) and passes
the gmake check step.
Installed it, so far no disasters. ymmv.
At 1.6.17 the effing thing kacks on AWK.
There is probably some place in the middle that still works. Research is ongoing.
Edit : okay, the break point is at 1.5.0 Here's what I find :
Code: Select all
Version 1.5.0beta22 [April 28, 2010]
Improved the options.awk script; added an "everything off" option.
Version 1.5.0beta29 [June 21, 2010]
Revised scripts/options.awk to work on Sunos (but still doesn't work)
Added comment to options.awk and contrib/pngminim/*/makefile to try nawk.
Version 1.5.0beta33 [July 6, 3010]
Corrected scripts/options.awk to handle both command line
options and options specified in the .dfa files.
Version 1.5.0beta43 [August 20, 2010]
Fixed non-GCC fixed point builds. In png.c a declaration was misplaced
in an earlier update. Fixed to declare the auto variables at the head.
Version 1.5.0beta57 [December 9, 2010]
Improved missing symbol handling in checksym.awk; symbols missing in
both the old and new files can now be optionally ignored, treated as errors
I'm looking at beta 33 especially becasue that seems related to the actual error I get ?
Also, do you think the beta 43 change affects us ?
btw, herr diegel - how come we are un-versioning the libraries ? What effect does that have ?
