solved: X compile fails for missing (internal?) symbols
Thu Aug 9 13:01:00 GMT 2007
The original problem report is
After that problem was solved, two others emerged. This message documents
fixes for all three.
1) As posted earlier
xftpat.o:xftpat.c:(.text+0x3c2): undefined reference to `_FcPatternInsertElt'
xftpat.o:xftpat.c:(.text+0x3ce): undefined reference to `_FcPatternFindElt'
The symbol names have changed as documented in
http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg07963.html. That post
contains two alternative patches, one that patches both xftint.h and
xftpat.c and a second patch that changes only xftint.h with defines.
The former patch worked for me, but the latter "even quicker" patch did
not work for me.
2) Bad includes in lib/font/FreeType/ftfuncs.c
Briefly, a #define symbol that specified a file to be included in
a #include was not defined, and hence, the file to be included could
not be found.
The fix is dirty. Place the line
#define HasFreetype2 NO
in config/cf/host.def. I realize that X is supposed to be built using
the installed cygwin freetype package, but I could not figure out
how to get X to use the cygwin package. By forcing HasFreetype2 to NO,
X builds a copy of the library for itself. Maybe someone else knows
or can figure out a better solution.
3) #include png.h fails.
libpng is not specified as a dependency
in http://x.cygwin.com/docs/cg/prog-build-native.html, but is is
needed to build X.
With those fixes X compiled for me.
