Description Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2018-07-30 23:49:19 UTC
The migration to the LLVM project's lld linker as the system linker (/usr/bin/ld) for FreeBSD is in progress - it is the case for arm64 and amd64 today, and i386 will switch once ports issues are addressed - see exp-run in PR214864.

Linking multimedia/xvid with lld as /usr/bin/ld on i386 produces errors of the form:
/usr/bin/ld: error: can't create dynamic relocation R_386_32 against local symbol in readonly segment; recompile object files with -fPIC
>>> defined in bitstream/x86_asm/cbp_mmx.o
>>> referenced by ../../src/bitstream/x86_asm/cbp_mmx.asm
>>>               bitstream/x86_asm/cbp_mmx.o:(calc_cbp_mmx)

  multimedia/xvid: link with -znotext on i386

  This port links some non-PIC code, which fails with lld as it defaults
  to disallowing relocations against read-only segments. For i386 we can
  just add -znotext unconditionally: for GNU BFD ld it just affirms BFD's
  existing default.
