Description Michael Rolle 2014-09-21 03:59:21 UTC
Created attachment 7798 [details] Transcript of build failure I am building binutils from source, on Cygwin. The source tarball is binutils-2.24.51-5-src.tar (actually came from Cygwin as .tar.gz) I untarred it to a source directory tree. Ran ./configure and then make. The make failed. I identified the location of the failure in the target info-recursive in the ./bfd directory. The file ./bfd/doc/bfd.texinfo has errors, three undefined references. The ChangeLog file indicates that these three items were added in 2013 sometime. I assume there's a patch available, or a newer release that has this fixed, because I can't imagine this error being out in the world for over a year and no bug report here in bugzilla. Someone please tell me if I did something wrong, or perhaps Cygwin just needs to get a newer release or a patch. I removed the three lines 199, 200, and 201, and deleted the reference in line 222, and now it builds fine. Attached is a transcript.

I looked at the GNU release version 2.24, and its bfd.texinfo is identical to the one I got from Cygwin (except for the Copyright line). Anyone like to forward this bug report to GNU?

The nodes are part of bfdt.texi, make sure it is correctly generated.
