Adding _eh.o frame-dwarf2.o to


As you undoubtebly know, this change completely hosed shared libstdc++'s:

2000-06-26  Andrew Macleod <>
	    Jason Merrill <>

	* dwarf2.h (enum dwarf_call_frame_info): Add
	* dwarf2out.c (union dw_cfi_oprnd_struct): Add a pointer to a
	dw_loc_descr_struct entry.
	(struct cfa_loc): New structure to track a CFA location.
	(lookup_cfa): Take a cfa_loc parameter instead of a reg and an offset.
	(lookup_cfa_1): Take a cfa_loc parameter instead of a reg and an
	offset, plus handle DW_CFA_def_cfa_expression.
	(def_cfa_1): Use to be dwarf2out_def_cfa, only now it uses a
	cfa_loc record.
	(dwarf2out_def_cfa): Entry point maintained for compatability.
	(dwarf_cfi_name): Add DW_CFA_def_cfa_expression.
	(cfa_reg, cfa_offset): Replace with cfa_loc record 'cfa'.
	(cfa_store_reg, cfa_store_offset): Replace with cfa_loc 'cfa_store'.
	(initial_return_save, dwarf2out_stack_adjust): Use cfa.reg, not
	(dwarf2out_frame_debug_expr): Use new cfa_loc records. Recognize rtl
	sequences for the new DW_CFA_def_cfa_expression record.
	(dwarf2out_frame_debug): Use new variables/fields.A
	(output_cfi): Handle DW_CFA_def_cfa_expression.
	(output_cfa_loc): New function to generate a CFI record for
	(get_cfa_from_loc_descr): New function to get a cfa_loc record from
	a dw_loc_descr sequeunce.
	(build_loc_descr): Build a dw_loc_descr from a cfa_loc record.
	(dwarf_stack_op_name, new_loc_descr, add_loc_descr, size_of_loc_descr,
	size_of_locs, output_loc_operands, output_loc_sequence): Move into
	unwind info section.
	* frame.h (frame_state): Add base_offset and indirect fields.
	* frame-dwarf2.c (decode_stack_op): New function to interpret a
	dw_loc_descr operation.
	(execute_cfa_insn): Add support for DW_CFA_def_cfa_expression.
	(struct frame_state): Add base offset and indirect fields.
	* libgcc2.c (next_stack_level): Support indirect loading for CFA.

You've noticed this yourself:

It's been broken almost a month now. Any libstdc++-v3 testcases that
throw standard exceptions core unless I add _eh.o and frame-dwarf2.o
to the shared library.

This is pretty lame..... anyway.

I looked through the last two months of postings from you, and see
some stuff about libtool work which I suspect may actually solve the
problem... does it?

I've updated libtool, but now get this......

checking how to recognise dependant libraries... pass_all
checking for object suffix... o
checking for ranlib... (cached) ranlib
checking for strip... strip
updating cache ./config.cache
ltconfig: unrecognized option `--build=i686-pc-linux-gnu'
Try `ltconfig --help' for more information.
configure: error: libtool configure failed

I suspect my libtool/autoconf/automake sources are not in sync. Can
you tell me what sources you're using for each of those items, and if
it solves this problem?

thanks, benjamin
