Description Mark Hittinger 2021-04-29 22:36:41 UTC
Attempting to build gcc-11.1 "make" succeeds but "make -n install" fails when it attempts to link gcov with an undefined symbol 


I believe that the build is using the system default libstdc++.a rather than the gcc-11 built version.

Modifying gcc-11.1.0-obj/gcc/Makefile to link gcov with

"-L ../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/libstdc++-v3/src/.libs"

Please provide your configure command and details of the build environment.
Comment 2 Mark Hittinger 2021-04-29 23:19:45 UTC
../gcc-11.1.0/configure \
   --prefix=/usr/local/gcc1110 \
   --disable-multilib \

x64 fedora using binutils-2.36 and gcc 10.2

For some reason it is relinking gcov. This normally does not happen.
Comment 4 Andrew Pinski 2021-04-30 00:35:01 UTC
You are going to have to provide the whole build log to figure out why this is happening.

Are you using a network mounted drive?  If so do they have the time syncronized between them.
Comment 5 Richard Biener 2021-04-30 06:55:41 UTC
Why do you use -n?  That might disrupt things.

I don't think this is related, I think you're just linking wrong.
Comment 8 Andrew Pinski 2022-11-30 21:23:42 UTC
You can't use "make -n install" If you want to do an install to a different directory you can use DESTDIR to do that as documented at https://gcc.gnu.org/install/finalinstall.html .
