Issue #5384 has been updated by Matt Lewandowsky.


=begin
In all fairness, Ruby 1.9.3-RC1 doesn't compile out of the box on Sun Solaris 10, either, but for a different reason (one which should be handled by configure, but is not):

 compiling iconv.c
 linking shared-object iconv.so
 ld: fatal: library -liconv: not found
 ld: fatal: File processing errors. No output written to ../../.ext/sparc-solaris2.10/iconv.so
 collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

As for illumos's libelf, it's currently unchanged from what Sun open-sourced in 2005. The comments in the file indicate that it's probably mostly unchanged from what AT&T had 20 years ago. [[http://src.illumos.org/source/xref/illumos-gate/usr/src/head/libelf.h?a=true&h=#40]] (Mouse over the "0" in the second column to see the information regarding its changeset.) I'd personally be surprised that Ruby 1.9.3-RC1 builds on a stock Solaris without a replacement libelf.

And, as for (({_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64})), just use it wherever you need 64-bit file support. I expect addr2line.c doesn't need it, correct?

Have you also tested on the Oracle Solaris 11 Express or Early Access?

Bug #5384: Ruby 1.9.3-RC1 Fails to Compile on Illumos (OpenSolaris)
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5384

Author: Cyrus Lopez
Status: Open
Priority: Normal
Assignee: 
Category: 
Target version: 
ruby -v: -


An attempt was made recently to compile http://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/1.9/ruby-1.9.3-rc1.tar.bz2 and it seems every call to the compiler passes _D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 which returns the fatal error 'large files are not supported by libelf' on a fresh install of OpenIndiana with GCC 4.6.1. 

Snippet of Error:
....
compiling addr2line.c
In file included from /usr/include/link.h:31:0,
                 from addr2line.c:42:
/usr/include/libelf.h:42:2: error: #error "large files are not supported by libelf"
make: *** [addr2line.o] Error 1
....

Discussion on IRC pointed out http://src.illumos.org/source/xref/illumos-gate/usr/src/head/libelf.h#41 and a request was made to file a bug report.
