Description Guangyuan Yang freebsd_committer 2017-05-30 15:57:32 UTC
It seems that FreeBSD uses some cross-compile tools on arm devices (and maybe other embedded platforms) which will cause build errors when building c packages (cffi as an example). References of cc is /nxb-bin/usr/bin/cc in /usr/local/lib/python2.7/_sysconfigdata.py

root@beaglebone:~ # pip install cffi
Collecting cffi
  Using cached cffi-1.10.0.tar.gz
    Complete output from command python setup.py egg_info:
    unable to execute '/nxb-bin/usr/bin/cc': No such file or directory
    unable to execute '/nxb-bin/usr/bin/cc': No such file or directory

        No working compiler found, or bogus compiler options
        passed to the compiler from Python's distutils module.
        See the error messages above.
        (If they are about -mno-fused-madd and you are on OS/X 10.8,
        see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/22313407/ .)

Command "python setup.py egg_info" failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-cIAYEn/cffi/

Temporary workaround:
sed -i '' 's/\/nxb-bin\/usr\/bin\/cc/\/usr\/bin\/cc/g' /usr/local/lib/python2.7/_sysconfigdata.py
