Issue #5384 has been updated by Naohisa Goto.

Status changed from Open to Third Party's Issue

I think this is a bug of Illumos (OpenSolaris).

In Solaris 11, it was treated as a bug of Solaris 11 and was already fixed.

See the discussion in Illumos community for the progress.

For a workaround,
  ./configure ac_cv_func_dl_iterate_phdr=no
should work.

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

Author: Cyrus Lopez
Status: Third Party's Issue
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.
