Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (SVN-4654) configure: command substitution for SVN_REMOVE_STANDARD_LIB_DIRS fails with non-POSIX backticks on HP-UX
Date Sun, 18 Sep 2016 15:00:23 GMT

--------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, you are right, it is [still POSIX|http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/xrat/V4_xcu_chap02.html#tag_23_02_06_03]
but {{$()}} is recommended.

Please have a look at the tarball. The shell tries to execute {{/lib}} with {{/lib64}} as
argument. There is some escaping issue as described in the specs. Frankly, I have wasted two
hours to figure it out. {{$()}} does the job. If you have, of course, an idea with better
compat, I am happy to verify it. Note that the operating system I use is already nine years
old. How old are the Solaris versions you try to support?

>             Project: Subversion
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: compile, install
>    Affects Versions: 1.9.4, trunk
>         Environment: $ uname -a
> HP-UX blnn724x B.11.31 U ia64 HP-UX
>            Reporter: Michael Osipov
>         Attachments: SVN-4654.patch, configure.err.tar.gz
>
>
> When running {{configure}} on HP-UX, you see several times {{./configure\[4880\]: : Execute
permission denied.}} and {{./configure\[4880\]: /lib64:  not found.}}.
> This is caused by having the command substitution perfomed by backticks {{LDFLAGS="`SVN_REMOVE_STANDARD_LIB_DIR(...)`"}}
and not with standard POSIX {{$()}}.
> See attached trace output w/o patch and with patch applied.
