Description Gerald Pfeifer freebsd_committer 2015-11-09 10:08:58 UTC
We are working to move the default version of GCC in ports (lang/gcc)
from GCC 4.8 to GCC 4.9.

Sadly something goes wrong with x49gp when using this newer version
of GCC:


One approach might be USE_GCC=4.8 for the time being if this cannot
be addressed easily and then work this without blocking the lang/gcc
Comment 1 Gerald Pfeifer freebsd_committer 2016-02-09 20:48:28 UTC
Shaun, any chance you'll be able to look into this?

I believe this may be a case of the ports looking for "gcc" and
ignoring ${CC] -- or ${CC} not being properly set (to "gcc49") here.
Comment 3 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2018-01-13 02:56:49 UTC
Still does not built with gcc49.
But bsd.default-version.mk:
GCC_DEFAULT?=           6

I think this is overcome by events.
Comment 4 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2018-01-13 02:57:38 UTC
USE_GCC=       any should changed.

(In reply to w.schwarzenfeld from comment #4)
> USE_GCC=       any should changed.

To what?  Is there a patch you'd like to propose?
Comment 6 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2019-02-05 18:48:43 UTC
Is this still a problem?
Comment 7 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2019-08-12 20:23:32 UTC
lang/gcc49|lang/gcc7|2019-04-27|Has expired: Unsupported by upstream. Use GCC 7 or newer instead
