 * What FreeBSD version? (uname -a)
 * Contents of /etc/make.conf (as an attachment, if not empty)

Comment 3 Felix Palmen 2021-10-27 16:17:36 UTC
Created attachment 229076 [details]

This only happens on i386, not on amd64. And I assume it only happens with BUNDLED_SSL set, because the "offending" code is in the bundled OpenSSL.

As to *why* it happens, I'm currently at a loss, as this should be a compiler builtin, right? Is it somehow related to https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=230888 ?

For now, I added a patch just disabling these atomic operations on i386, which is probably less then ideal. My test build is still running, but linking openssl-cli (which failed before) now worked.
Comment 4 Felix Palmen 2021-10-28 07:14:51 UTC
I can now confirm that www/node and some dependent ports like chromium and firefox build find on i386 with BUNDLED_SSL after adding the patch above and the one from https://bugs.freebsd.org/259377
Comment 5 John Hein 2021-10-28 17:10:53 UTC
Same here on 12.x/i386.

See also upstream bug with fix applied for mac & linux:


I will try building with BUNDLED_SSL=off and DEFAULT_VERSIONS=ssl=openssl.

    www/node: Update 17.0.0_1 -> 17.0.1


    While here, update pkg-plist to allow building with the BUNDLED_SSL
    option enabled, and add the patch from PR 259454 to fix the build on

Comment 8 Felix Palmen 2021-10-29 13:56:04 UTC
Thanks Bradley for including my patch! But it still remains a mystery to me why this code doesn't work on i386… Do you want to analyze this further or just live with the workaround and close this PR?
Comment 9 Bedreddin Sahbaz 2021-10-29 21:45:14 UTC
I tried install node 17.0.1 and installed without any error. Thank you..
