Description jako.andras 2016-12-13 13:37:44 UTC
I cannot build www/apache24 without /usr/local/bin/nm, but devel/binutils is not listed as a build dependency. Compilation stops at mod_sed. Installing devel/binutils before apache24 made it work for me.
Comment 1 Olli Hauer freebsd_committer 2016-12-13 14:02:41 UTC
Can you describe your build environment?
OS release, synth, poudriere or portmaster ...

Reason behind:
mod_sed is a default module and I haven't seen any build issues without binutils until now.

It's a jail. I use portmaster.

Hm, I've just build a fresh 11(amd64) system and haven't run into this issue, I even see a reason why nm should be used in the build except in the QA stages.

Can you run a build similar to the next lines and log it even with the script command?

build log

I attached the script output. It still tries to use /usr/local/bin/nm, as far as I can tell.

'freebsd-version -ku' run on the host gives:
[root@swing ~]# freebsd-version -ku
Comment 6 Olli Hauer freebsd_committer 2016-12-14 12:50:42 UTC
I found the place where nm is called, but nm is also in the base OS and I suspect it is not in the path of your jail or not correct working.

Can you check if /usr/bin/nm does exist and is working e.g. with a small hello world program?

I've seen the issue only after renaming /usr/bin/nm but then with the same error message.

test /usr/bin/nm

If you're sure that this is a local problem on my machine, then please don't waste your time on it, I can live with it.

Anyway, I tested /usr/bin/nm. Please note that it's been quite a few years since I wrote C code last time. I've attached the output, /usr/bin/nm seems to do something.
Comment 8 Olli Hauer freebsd_committer 2016-12-15 05:12:20 UTC
Thanks for testing the base 'nm' util, until now I have no idea why it is not recognized during the build.
Comment 9 jako.andras 2017-01-02 15:47:25 UTC
Reinstalling devel/apr1 solved the problem. I don't know how and what got messed up, but it's OK now.

Thanks for your help!

(In reply to jako.andras from comment #9)

I ran into the exact same problem on 11-STABLE today. Re-installing apr resolved the issue. It is not a jail environment. and I use portmaster.
Comment 11 Olli Hauer freebsd_committer 2017-01-06 16:09:02 UTC
Ah, devel/apr1 was the right hint!

I suspect in your case apr was build with devel/binutils instlled and so autoconf recorded the wrong nm in /usr/local/share/apr/build-1/libtool.

If I remember correct, there was a similar issue years before with gnu sed, editing /usr/local/share/apr/build-1/libtool solved it.

Btw. that's a good example why none of the porters could verify the issue, most of them are using poudriere (or synth with a clean dedicated OS jail)
