Description René Berber 2012-10-12 16:53:55 UTC
Build environment: Cygwin (latest), gcc 4.5.3

Running configure doesn't try to detect header byteswap.h, then building fails with:

[ 541/3345] Compiling lib/ntdb/check.c
../lib/ntdb/check.c:1:0: warning: -fPIC ignored for target (all code is position independent)

Build failed:  -> task failed (err #1):
        {task: cc check.c -> check_1.o}
Makefile:7: recipe for target `all' failed

The point of failure is guarded by:

#include <byteswap.h>

but HAVE_BYTESWAP_H was never defined.
Comment 1 René Berber 2012-10-12 17:06:04 UTC
Add HAVE_BSWAP_64 to the variables that need a test and be defined.
Comment 2 Björn Jacke 2012-10-13 11:54:44 UTC
rusty, you should make sure that the defines that you use in ccan are being set in configure
Comment 3 Rusty Russell 2013-11-01 23:00:17 UTC
Huh, waf *should* detect this:


That should set HAVE_BYTESWAP_H.  That's been there for a year:

    ccan: check for all the used config.h defines
    In particular, not checking for byteswap.h meant we defined duplicates:
