It builds fine in poudriere in a pretty updated current.

14.0-CURRENT 1400013 50d31dbc6 amd64 git+https 2021-05-02 17:11:19

Would you try updating?

Comment 3 canardo 2021-05-05 16:11:18 UTC
(In reply to Fernando Apesteguía from comment #2)

I tried again after portsnap fetch, update and make clean and the error is still present in version
# uname -a
FreeBSD g41713 13.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE #0 releng/13.0-n244733-ea31abc261f

Unfortunately I don't have any spare machine to test in version 14.0.

Would it help if I provide a more detailed log ?
If yes, please tell me how to generate one (I'm no developer and need step by step instructions)
Comment 4 Brandon Bergren freebsd_committer 2021-05-05 18:34:49 UTC
FWIW, src/cpu/tms9900/99xxstat.h contains PPC32 specific assembly.

If you want to try the generic C version of those functions, change the

`#if defined(__POWERPC__) && !defined(__powerpc64__)`

line to `#if 0`.

Not sure why it's failing to build though. I suspect that it's using GCC specific bits in the assembly, as I really don't recognize the way it's doing asm functions.
Comment 5 canardo 2021-05-05 19:53:00 UTC
(In reply to Brandon Bergren from comment #4)

Following the change you proposed, build is now successful

# pkg info libretro-mame2000
Name           : libretro-mame2000
Version        : 0.20210214
Installed on   : Wed May  5 21:27:40 2021 CEST
Origin         : games/libretro-mame2000
Architecture   : FreeBSD:13:powerpc

I don't know if this change should be committed, I let you decide.

Should I close the ticket ?
Comment 6 Brandon Bergren freebsd_committer 2021-05-06 00:31:01 UTC
Nah, please leave open for the time being.

While disabling the PPC32 asm is one solution, I think it might be better to do a test build with gcc to see if that fixes the build. Tossing it onto my PPC32 poudriere now to see what happens.
Comment 7 Fernando Apesteguía freebsd_committer 2021-05-06 11:30:56 UTC
By the way, my comment was bogus. I did not test in PowerPC.

It fails in the builders too: https://docs.freebsd.org/mail/current/freebsd-pkg-fallout.html
Comment 8 Brandon Bergren freebsd_committer 2021-05-06 16:05:17 UTC
FWIW I ended up getting the same build failure as ppc64 was getting.

I think maybe what happened here is that the ppc32 code hasn't been built for a while in upstream and it got out of sync with reality.
