help to compile gmp-4.2.2

Eduardo Mendes-2
Hello
 
I am trying to get gmp-4.2.2 compiled so I downloaded the source, updated msys and binutils.
 
First I try gcc-3.4.5 but it seems that gmp-4.2.2 needs gcc >= 4. So I got gcc-4.2.1-sjlj and added to mingw.  gcc-4.2.1 seems to work but
 
make[2]: Entering directory `C:/msys/1.0/home/eduardo/gmp-4.2.2/mpn'
C:/msys/1.0/bin/sh.exe ../libtool --mode=compile --tag=CC ../mpn/m4-ccas --m4="m4" gcc -c -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -D__GMP_WITHIN_GMP -I.. -DOPERATION_`echo add_n | sed 's/_$//'`    -m32 -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -mtune=k8 -march=k8 -mno-cygwin `test -f 'add_n.asm' || echo './'`add_n.asm

Any ideas of what could be wrong?
 
Many thanks

How did you configure it? More strangely, why is m4 called? Your libtool
message is very odd indeed. Try doing

./libtool --config|grep CC=

It should give you the following.
LTCC="gcc"
CC="gcc"

I have seen your off the mailing list message, it is not a problem, but
I do prefer it on the mailing list. I remember compiling GMP using
gcc-3.4.5. By any chance are you using Vista?

Another note, GMP does not allow both shared and static libraries to be
built due to the difference in installed headers. I suggest using
static, otherwise, gfortran.exe will depend on the GMP dll.

Sorry, I missed your previous message, you are running Vista. You need
an updated GCC-3.4.5, rebuilt for vista. Sorry...

I have issued (on msys) ./configure --prefix=/mingw --enable-static
 
I have no idea why m4 called.
 
On msys /bin/libtool is dated 2003.

That is exactly the output I get when I issue ./libtool under gmp dir.

I agree with you. Perhaps other list members can benefit from the discussion.
 
Yes, I am running Vista.

Ok, I checked GMP, it indeed does call m4 to preprocess some assembly
text. My m4 seems to run fine though. Regardless, try updating m4.

Done. I returned mingw to old settings.   gcc-3.4.5 works now but make stops at the same error.
 
libtool returns gcc an gcc.

Do you think I need to update libtool?

It has nothing to do with the installed libtool. Try rerunning
configure. I am unable to duplicate your problem. Having '../mpn/m4-ccas
"--m4=m4 gcc"' is strange, mine emits '../mpn/m4-ccas --m4=m4 gcc -c',
there are no double quotes in mine.

What does "cat mpn/Makefile|grep M4" say?
If it has "M4 = m4 gcc", you may need to edit your Makefile manually.
I'm not very good at sed, but here goes:

cat Makefile|sed -e 's/^M4\ \=\ m4\ gcc/M4\ \=\ m4/g' >Make2
mv Makefile{.bak}
mv Make{2,file}

This will change instances of "M4 = m4 gcc" to "M4 = m4" and backup the
original Makefile.

Another note for building gcc 4.2.1, remember to set
CFLAGS=-D__USE_MINGW_ACCESS to fix the access() problem.

Bfore every attempt, I issue make distclean and then retype the configure command.

It says:
 
CLOCAL_M4 = $(top_srcdir)/aclocal.m4
        $(ACLOCAL_M4)
M4 = m4
$(ACLOCAL_M4): # $(am__aclocal_m4_deps)
        $(M4) -DOPERATION_$* `test -f '$<' || echo '$(srcdir)/'`$< >tmp-$*.s
        $(M4) -DOPERATION_$* `if test -f '$<'; then $(CYGPATH_W) '$<'; else $(CYGPATH_W) '$(srcdir)/$<'; fi` >tmp-$*.s
        $(LIBTOOL) --mode=compile --tag=CC $(top_srcdir)/mpn/m4-ccas --m4="$(M4)" $(CCAS) $(COMPILE_FLAGS) `test -f '$<' || echo '$(srcdir)/'`$<
 
 
I have removed gmp-4.2.2 dir and done everything from scratch.  Unfortunately the error msg is the same.
 
 
 
Thanks

I'll admit I have no idea what went wrong. Where is "m4 gcc" expanded
from? Something is very wrong...

OK, since m4 is contains no spaces, try removing quotation marks from
--m4="$(M4)". "cat mpn/Makefile|grep '\-\-m4\=' -n" will tell you which
line it is on.

Edit mpn/Makefile manually or use the sed expression
's/\-\-m4\=\"\$(M4)"/\-\-m4\=\$(M4)/g' on it.

If it still fails, post your config.log and mpn\Makefile. Maybe
MinGW-users list has makefile gurus.

It worked - make finished without an error.  I tried make install and gives an error (maybe you can help me here too).

This is another Vista feature.  UAC special-cases programs by name.
Yes, it's that dumb.  It thinks programs named like 'install' or 'setup'
or 'update' are special because they are likely to be the name of an exe
that you might run to install a new program, and these generally need to
be run with elevated privileges since they tend to want to write into
the Program Files or the system hive, which are typically off limits to
the restricted/regular user.

Anyway, to make a long story short you need to create some manifests
that tell Vista that it doesn't need to elevate for these binaries, but
to run as the invoker.  In Cygwin we have had to do this for
/bin/install-info, /bin/install, and /bin/patch.  You can read about it
in this thread:
<http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2006-12/threads.html#00518>

In case, it was easy - I run msys using "Run as administrator".  That took care of the problem.
 
Many thanks
 
Ed.
 
PS.  As for installing cygwin, that is another story - The installation process hangs at some post-install file.

Re: (success!) help to compile gmp-4.2.2

Eduardo Mendes-2

Good news - gmp-4.2.2 was compiled and installed as it should be in the first.  Updating msys, mingw and changing two makefiles - mnp/Makefile and tests/Makefile ("$(M4)" issue) did the job.
 
Many thanks to JonY for all the patience and help.
 
Now to mpfr  ....
