Subject: Compilation with GCC 10 and -fno-common fails for 1.14.5
Date: Thu, 11 Jun 2020 11:33:41 +0200 [thread overview]
Message-ID: <email@example.com> (raw)
GCC 10 has switched from -fcommon to -fno-common as a default, breaking
compilation with the current release of mandoc:
compat_getline.c:5: multiple definition of `dummy';
compat_err.o:mandoc-1.14.5/compat_err.c:5: first defined here
When multiple unneeded (ie HAVE_* is set) compatibility files are
included in a compiler invocation, the dummy declarations 'int dummy'
clash with one another.
Ordinarily I would have sent a patch along, but I am not sure what
solution is preferred here. I can think of the following:
* Simply have a unique name for each dummy declaration per file.
* Make sure that unneeded compatibility files are not included in the
build. This seems a decent albeit more complex and disruptive
I tried checking whether the development branch has this fixed already,
but it seems that the CVS web interface  is down at the moment (500
Internal Server Error). I also sadly couldn't check out the CVS:
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)
There were no previous messages, and I don't know how to make CVS more
I did not find anything through a cursory check of the mandoc-source
mailing list archive, so I'm assuming this issue is still present.
Thanks for your time!
