Description Jean-Sébastien Pédron freebsd_committer 2018-01-28 12:28:47 UTC
On FreeBSD 10.3, darktable 2.4.1 fails to configure with the following error:

    -- Looking for ZLIB
    CMake Error at src/external/rawspeed/cmake/Modules/CheckZLIB.cmake:44
      Found unexpected prototype for zError() in <zlib.h>
    Call Stack (most recent call first):
      src/external/rawspeed/cmake/src-dependencies.cmake:117 (include)
      src/external/rawspeed/src/CMakeLists.txt:3 (include)

The error from CMakeError.log file is below:

    Determining if the prototype zError exists for HAVE_ZLIB_ZERROR_PROTOTYPE failed with the following output:

Comment 1 Jean-Sébastien Pédron freebsd_committer 2018-01-28 12:29:29 UTC
Changing the CMake test source code to include `stddef.h` fixes the build failure.

  graphics/darktable: Include `stddef.h` when testing zError() symbol

  The `CheckZlib.cmake` module uses `NULL` in the test source code to
  check for the `zError()` symbol. This fails to build on FreeBSD 10.3
  with the following error:

      CheckPrototypeDefinition.c:15:10: error: use of undeclared identifier 'NULL'
        return NULL;

  I don't know the root cause for this failure, but including `stddef.h`
  in this test source code fixes the problem.
