#391 closed defect (duplicate)

bitlbee fails to compile with glib2-2.4.7-1 and glibc-2.3.4-2.25 on CentOS 4.4 final

Component: BitlBee Version: 1.2

IRC client+version: Client-independent Operating System: Public server
OS version/distro: CentOS 4.4 Final


Error is as follows:

  • Compiling user.c

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/tdc/bitlbee-1.2/lib'

  • Compiling arc.c

In file included from arc.c:48: arc.h:33: error: syntax error before "struct" make[1]: * [arc.o] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/tdc/bitlbee-1.2/lib' make: * [lib] Error 2

The offending line from lib/arc.h

G_GNUC_MALLOC struct arc_state *arc_keymaker( unsigned char *key, int kl, int cycles ); The issue is G_GNUC_MALLOC is not defined. I searched the .h files packaged with glib and glibc and didn't find the definition of the macro G_GNUC_MALLOC.

I did find a bogus definition in bitlbee.h, but it seems to be ignored for some reason.

#ifndef G_GNUC_MALLOC /* Doesn't exist in GLib <=2.4 while everything else in BitlBee should

work with it, so let's fake this one. */

#define G_GNUC_MALLOC #endif

Taking the macro out of lib/arc.h, the program compiles and seems to function just fine.
