v1 (use "git am")

/usr/bin/cc can be absent due to base built WITHOUT_CLANG,
external toolchain from ports can be installed instead.

Respect $CC from environment, e.g. when
/usr/local/share/toolchains/*.mk gets included:

configure:4847: checking for gcc
configure:4877: result: no
configure:4940: checking for cc
configure:4987: result: no
configure:5043: checking for cl.exe
configure:5073: result: no
configure:5097: error: in `/usr/local/poudriere/ports/ei/security/cyrus-sasl2/work/cyrus-sasl
configure:5100: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH

security/cyrus-sasl2 cannot detect devel/llvm12, at least (and w/ $PATH adjusted)

Note, now that CC is respected, native-xtoolchain for 13.0/aarch64 gets
used by default, and the build is about ~3 seconds shorter.

Extracted package *contents* (! MANIFEST) ("pkg diff") did not change, PORTREVISION is left intact.

A correctly written autoconf build will see and honour CC from the environment, whether or not specific compiler binaries are specified or searched. The patch set CC_FOR_BUILD to CC, but the next line shows a check for the presence of CC (which ports provides).

Is there something else involved here? I note the port does not currently use autoreconf or similar, is that a factor?

(In reply to Kubilay Kocak from comment #1)

(repost from #ports)

Thanks. autoreconf, and also various workarounds from git log --grep='respect CC' -p don't help. An alternate approach without touching the configure file would be to add BINARY_ALIAS=   cc=${CC} ld=${LD} to the Makefile, but the configure is already being patched in the port, and adjusting just CC_FOR_BUILD also adjusts LD (and likely more if needed).
Comment 4 Evgeniy Khramtsov 2021-08-05 11:48:08 UTC
Passing CC_FOR_BUILD like ports-mgmt/pkg does via
also works, patching the configure file is not needed.

Thanks, committed!
Comment 7 Alexey Dokuchaev freebsd_committer 2021-08-19 10:07:48 UTC
Thank you!  This also allows me to remove the ccache-disabling hack when building this port in the tinderbox.
