Description Julio Merino,+1 347 694 0576,New York City freebsd_committer 2015-08-13 02:10:04 UTC
When building x11/pixman on:

FreeBSD g5.meroh.net 11.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT #0 r286631: Tue Aug 11 13:22:40 EDT 2015     jmmv@g5.meroh.net:/scratch/obj/home/jmmv/os/freebsd/base/head/sys/GENERIC64  powerpc

I get the following:

g5:~/os/freebsd/ports/x11/pixman/work/pixman-0.32.6/test> make
  CCLD     prng-test
cc: Internal error: Segmentation fault (program ld)
Please submit a full bug report.
See <URL:http://www.freebsd.org/support.html> for instructions.
*** Error code 1

make: stopped in /home/jmmv/os/freebsd/ports/x11/pixman/work/pixman-0.32.6/test

ld is:

I have a coredump but it yields no useful information because I do not have debug symbols. Filling this bug preemptively; may be able to provide more details later.

I had the same problem. What I did is just build it with another gcc preferably 4.8+.
Comment 2 Justin Hibbits freebsd_committer 2016-06-11 16:31:03 UTC
x11/pixman should be updated with USE_GCC for powerpc64 (probably powerpc, too).
