Description Han-Wen Nienhuys 2006-09-17 07:59:40 UTC

compiling fontconfig 2.4.1 on mingw ; 


/home/lilydev/vc/gub/target/mingw/src/fontconfig-2.4.1/src/fccache.c: In
function 'FcDirCacheMapFd':
/home/lilydev/vc/gub/target/mingw/src/fontconfig-2.4.1/src/fccache.c:446: error:
'size' undeclared (first use in this function)
/home/lilydev/vc/gub/target/mingw/src/fontconfig-2.4.1/src/fccache.c:446: error:
(Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
/home/lilydev/vc/gub/target/mingw/src/fontconfig-2.4.1/src/fccache.c:446: error:
for each function it appears in.)
/home/lilydev/vc/gub/target/mingw/src/fontconfig-2.4.1/src/fccache.c: In
function 'FcMakeDirectory':
/home/lilydev/vc/gub/target/mingw/src/fontconfig-2.4.1/src/fccache.c:694: error:
too many arguments to function 'mkdir'
/home/lilydev/vc/gub/target/mingw/src/fontconfig-2.4.1/src/fccache.c:696: error:
too many arguments to function 'mkdir'

suspected fixes (not a mingw expert): use stat->st_st_size for size, strip mode
argument of mkdir.
Comment 1 Keith Packard 2006-09-17 13:40:36 UTC
Have you patched the code so that it will compile on mingw? And, ideally, the
autoconf changes needed to detect these two oddities? I haven't any way to test
this myself.
Comment 2 Han-Wen Nienhuys 2006-09-17 14:25:22 UTC
the first simply was a typo, no need to check for that. 

As for mkdir, according to 


the standard (since w95) actually is _mkdir(const char *) . There really is no
need for an autoconf check, IMO: if _WIN32 is defined, you're on windows, and
should use _mkdir. 

Patch is another issue.

see issue #8311
Comment 4 Keith Packard 2006-09-17 14:53:33 UTC
This was fixed in the patch for 8311
