Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to build Git on Alpine Linux 3.12 x86_64. Mandoc is a
distant dependency, so I need to build Mandoc as a prereq.

Mandoc is dying in configure (configure.local is already created):

    ./configure
    file config.log: writing...
    make: echo: No such file or directory

I took a quick look at the configure scripts. I think Mandoc may be
getting a bit too fancy in configure. It is confusing BusyBox.

I understand most of the script is standard shell scripting. But
that's not very helpful to me since I can't build/install a program I
need.

Jeff

How about doing "apk add mandoc-dev" and such instead?
Or look at how they build it.

Hihihi to the first two sentences.

Look here for configure patch on Alpine:
https://git.alpinelinux.org/aports/tree/main/mandoc/mandoc_configure.patch

Let me go out on a limb and say this is a mandoc bug. In no point does
POSIX say a shell should have echo and printf builtin, so it's
perfectly legit to have these stuff only in thr PATH. It's wrong to
expect the shell called by make to find these commands with an empty
environment (env -i).

Some form of the patch should be applied to mandoc.

Regards,
Mingye Wang
