Bug#645018: gcc-4.6: build error on REVERSE_CROSS ("gengtype" is wrong arch)
 
Source: gcc-4.6
Version: 4.6.1-15
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch
User: crossbuild@debian.org
Usertags: cross

When building in REVERSE_CROSS mode (IE: when trying to build a native
compiler for another architecture with an existing cross-compiler, the
build fails with the following error:

$ apt-get source gcc-4.6=4.6.1-15
$ ( cd gcc-4.6-4.6.1 && dpkg-buildpackage -apowerpcspe -b -us -uc )
[...]
dh_strip -pgcc-4.6-plugin-dev
powerpc-linux-gnuspe-strip: Unable to recognise the format of the input file `debian/gcc-4.6-plugin-dev/usr/lib/gcc/powerpc-linux-gnuspe/4.6/gengtype'
dh_strip: powerpc-linux-gnuspe-strip --remove-section=.comment --remove-section=.note debian/gcc-4.6-plugin-dev/usr/lib/gcc/powerpc-linux-gnuspe/4.6/gengtype returned exit code 1
make[1]: *** [stamps/08-binary-stamp-gcc-plugindev] Error 29
make[1]: Leaving directory `/srv/stuff/toolchain/CROSS/gcc-4.6/gcc-4.6-4.6.1'
make: *** [binary] Error 2
dpkg-buildpackage: error: fakeroot debian/rules binary gave error exit status 2

A brief inspection of the gengtype program shows that it is in fact a
binary built for the build system:
$ file debian/gcc-4.6-plugin-dev/usr/lib/gcc/powerpc-linux-gnuspe/4.6/gengtype
debian/gcc-4.6-plugin-dev/usr/lib/gcc/powerpc-linux-gnuspe/4.6/gengtype: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.26, BuildID[sha1]=0xfcaf9384cfcf05212c599e6334d7de5bd062c5de, not stripped

As far as I can tell, the "gcc-plugin" support is not supported when
building in REVERSE_CROSS mode and should be disabled.

Please review and apply the attached patch.

Unfortunately, the build still does not complete due to a different
error, one which I will be submitting as an additional followup bug.

Cheers,
Kyle Moffett

The reverse cross build should result into the same functionality as the native
build. So we need both build and target versions of gengtype. either patch the
upstream build system or the packaging to provide the target version of gengtype.
