Description Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2019-01-08 13:57:36 UTC
In PR comment 187 jbeich@ writes:

FreeType is disabled because iconv() detection fails which itself fails due to auto-enabled -pie. On amd64 configure appends -fpie, assuming shared libraries are built with -fPIC, but on i386 this is not required.

$ cat >a.c
#include <stdio.h>

int main()
  printf("Hello World\n");
  return 0;

$ cc a.c -pie
/usr/bin/ld: error: can't create dynamic relocation R_386_32 against symbol: .L.str in readonly segment; recompile object files with -fPIC

cc: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)

LDFLAGS_i386+=	-Wl,-z,notext

to ${PORTSDIR}/multimedia/mplayer/Makefile.options

fixes the build with lld and produces a (on my test setup) working binary of mplayer and mencoder.

Ed: From previous discussions around the lld topic I understood that this is the preferred solution. Could you quickly confirm, then I'll commit this.

Thank you.

(In reply to Thomas Zander from comment #2)

Yes, this is the most straightforward option and configures lld to act as ld.bfd did, so is a minimal change.
