but i have problem with linker.

Replace problematic inline functions with macros

Hi, I've the same issue.

It seems to originate from some inlined (byte swapping) function declared in a header file that are never used so pruned from object files, but still expected at a link step.

Un-inlining is not really an option as it create multiple reference, I guess this could be worked around with the static keyword but I also managed to workaround this using preprocessor macros instead... I've attach a patch if that can be a temporary fix for some people.
Comment 3 Baptiste Daroussin freebsd_committer 2019-12-16 08:24:21 UTC
can you try the following patch from upstream?

https://sourceware.org/git/gitweb.cgi?p=binutils-gdb.git;a=patch;h=cbbbc402e059ee345cb781d3ceb757ae1cc679ee
Comment 4 Dimitry Andric freebsd_committer 2019-12-16 17:04:56 UTC
(In reply to Baptiste Daroussin from comment #3)
Yes, that should be much better.  In C, *never* use "naked" inline functions!
Comment 5 Baptiste Daroussin freebsd_committer 2019-12-16 18:44:24 UTC
Created attachment 209997 [details]
fixed from upstream
Comment 6 Baptiste Daroussin freebsd_committer 2019-12-16 18:45:53 UTC
I added actually a full fix, sent by the upstream developper who claim to be responsible for the issue. he has been nice enough to sent me a full chunk patch which can apply straight on the ports tree!

Please confirm that is fixes the issue for you
Comment 7 Eitan Adler freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2019-12-26 12:57:47 UTC
Apologies about the delay. binutils successfully compiles with this patch.
Comment 8 Marcin Cieślak 2020-01-11 15:45:04 UTC
Ran into this today with poudriere. Can we get this patch committed?
Comment 9 Marcin Cieślak 2020-01-11 19:26:33 UTC
Another data point: this happens only under WITH_DEBUG=true
Comment 10 Kubilay Kocak freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2020-01-25 13:15:43 UTC
@Bapt Upstream patch has been tested and confirmed, comment 7 and comment 8, along with people on IRC. 

Would you like me to reset Assignee so someone else can take care of it?

Comment 12 Kubilay Kocak freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2020-01-28 03:12:09 UTC
^Triage: Assignee timeout, open to take

attachment 209997 [details] has been tested/verified, but needs QA (poudriere) testing.
Comment 13 dewayne 2020-01-28 03:42:17 UTC
(In reply to Marcin Cieślak from comment #9)
Thanks Marcin, I've been running with binutils 2.33.1,1 since late December on both i386 and amd64 FreeBSD 12.1S and couldn't understand why I don't have the problem (???).  However I do have
DEBUG_FLAGS=
WITHOUT_DEBUG=true
WITHOUT_DEBUG_FILES=YES
sprinkled around.
Comment 14 Marcin Cieślak 2020-01-31 15:22:35 UTC
Dewayne, I think my build breaks because I was using lower compiler optimization level as implied by WITH_DEBUG=yes. It might work well during the "normal" build.
Comment 15 freebsd 2020-02-16 19:49:40 UTC
Is this the same issue? Only on FreeBSD 12.1-p2 amd64 (Poudriere):

No, your pastebin shows different errors:

ld: error: undefined symbol: powerpc_num_opcodes
>>> referenced by ppc-dis.c
>>>               ppc-dis.o:(disassemble_init_powerpc) in archive ../opcodes/.libs/libopcodes.a
 
ld: error: undefined symbol: powerpc_opcodes

ld: error: undefined symbol: prefix_num_opcodes
>>> referenced by ppc-dis.c
>>>               ppc-dis.o:(disassemble_init_powerpc) in archive ../opcodes/.libs/libopcodes.a

As this is about PowerPC specific parts of binutils, you should open another bug with a reproduction scenario.

Ah sorry, jumped the gun there, will do.
Comment 18 mrT 2020-07-07 01:21:18 UTC
The patch has been available since end of January.
So why is it not available in
https://svnweb.freebsd.org/ports/head/devel/binutils/?view=log

I also checked freshports.org and it is not there either.

I will try to make due with the batch from this bug report any way.
