This is a followup to
I tried to build icu using gcc-5 and binutils-2.25-2 on x86. The build
appeared to hang when cygport was stripping executables. I traced the
problem to a call to 'nm -l' in src_postinst.cygpart. This produced
errors like the following when called on some of the DLLs:
$ nm -l cygicui18n56.dll
6270c458 b .bssBFD: Dwarf Error: Could not find abbrev number 1151.
6270c594 b .bssBFD: Dwarf Error: Could not find abbrev number 1151.
6270c0cc b .bssBFD: Dwarf Error: Could not find abbrev number 1151.
This particular DLL can be found at
nm -l from binutils-2.25-1 has no problem on this DLL. The behavior is
the same whether the DLL is built using binutils-2.25-1 or 2.25-2, so
this appears to just be a bug in nm. [The DLL I posted at the above URL
was buil with binutils-2.25-1.]
