Description Richard Earnshaw 2004-10-05 19:03:34 UTC
Bootstrapping is failing on an arm-unknown-elf cross because of the following error:

gnumake[3]: *** [c++locale.lo] Error 1

This was probably introduced by the following patch

2004-10-03  Roger Sayle  <>

        * config/locale/generic/ (__convert_to_v): Use
        _GLIBCXX_HAVE_STRTOF instead _GLIBCXX_USE_C99 to check for strtof.
        Likewise, use _GLIBCXX_HAVE_STRTOLD instead of _GLIBCXX_USE_C99
        to check for presence of strtold.

A 3.4 regression also if it was caused by that patch.
Comment 3 Richard Earnshaw 2004-10-05 19:21:26 UTC
As far as I can see, I think the problem is in, where we
automatically assume that newlib has strtold().  This is false AFAICT, newlib
has _strtold, but it doesn't have strtold.

Comment 4 roger 2004-10-05 20:58:11 UTC
Richard does the "obvious" one line fix to restore bootstrap for
you?  It looks like my cygwin (a newlib target) doesn't even have _strtold.

Comment 5 Richard Earnshaw 2004-10-06 00:04:58 UTC
Yes, I think that probably is the best solution.  I looked at changing the entry
to HAVE__STRTOLD and adding the other related glue to handle that, but that
doesn't work (or I've missed something else) because there's no declartion of
_strtold in any of the header files.
Comment 6 Benjamin Kosnik 2004-10-07 03:37:55 UTC
Richard note the remappings in c++config.h:

#if defined (_GLIBCXX_HAVE__STRTOLD) && ! defined (_GLIBCXX_HAVE_STRTOLD)
# define strtold _strtold

I thought _strtold was defined in the newlib binary.

Comment 7 Benjamin Kosnik 2004-10-07 03:40:18 UTC
... of course, if newlib doesn't have strtold or any of the _strtold or
__strtold or whatever, then the cross config bits for newlib shouldn't say that
it does.

But no declaration in the headers (at least, not in my copy), so we
can't use it in C++ unless there's some mechanism for making libstdc++
configury generate a declaration for us... :-( 

Further, Roger says that even that isn't in his copy of Cygwin...

Comment 9 Benjamin Kosnik 2004-10-07 15:39:27 UTC
There is no newlib definition for strtold. Thus, this patch should be applied:
