Description Paul Whalen 2012-11-28 19:34:03 UTC
Description of problem:
db4 ftbfs on arm due to use of long form triplet 'armv7hl-redhat-linux-gnueabi-gcc', requires the use of '--tag=CC' in the spec file. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Occurs on all versions of db4 in F18.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to build from source
2. Build fails.
Actual results:

Output from build.log - 

+ /bin/sh libtool --mode=compile armv7hl-redhat-linux-gnueabi-gcc -O2 -g -pipe -Wall -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fexceptions -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -march=armv7-a -mfpu=vfpv3-d16 -mfloat-abi=hard -Idb.1.85/PORT/linux/include -D_REENTRANT -c db_dump185/db_dump185.c -o dist/dist-tls/db_dump185.lo
libtool: compile: unable to infer tagged configuration
libtool: compile: specify a tag with `--tag'
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.P7uLIx (%build)
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.P7uLIx (%build)

Expected results: 

Successful build.

Additional info:

Link to build failure -

When using '--tag=CC' in the spec file, the build is successful.

db4 has been renamed to libdb4 and that builds fine on F-18. db4 shouldn't be used.
