Re: Building a snapshot ("Not an ELF file" error)

Hello All,

I'm using some recent (not the latest, though) CYGWIN release,
and trying to build a CYGWIN snapshot (for the first time)...

When I deployed the snapshot source, ran configure, then make, I saw this:

checking for .preinit_array/.init_array/.fini_array support... readelf: Error: Not an ELF file - it has the wrong magic bytes at the start

Does not look "good" to me, but other than the message, it does not
seem to cause any ill side-effects, either (just as yet, at least).

it could be a side effect of the platform used to build the snapshot.
Usually it is cross-build from Linux and not built on cygwin

On my build from CVS source on cygwin I see:
checking for .preinit_array/.init_array/.fini_array support... (cached) no

Is there something to worry about?  Like I said, I'm breaking new
grounds to me, and I am not familiar with any (known) peculiarities...


I presume no as the checking say "no" as on mine
