Re: monotone: FTBFS on alpha, configure fails mysteriously
If you look carefully at the buildd log for this one, you see it went
off the rails a long time before that...
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... no
checking whether g++ accepts -g... no
checking dependency style of g++... none
checking for C++ compiler warning flags... unknown
^^ this looks like a completely nonfunctional C++ compiler. Actually,
there are problems even earlier:
The following extra packages will be installed:
cpp-2.95 g++-2.95 gcc-2.95 libboost-filesystem1.34.0 libboost-regex1.34.0
libc6.1-dev libicu36 libicu36-dev libstdc++2.10-dev libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2
^^ g++ *2.95*?! What on earth is it doing using that dinosaur?
Upstream doesn't support anything before 3.3, and would like to bump
that to 3.4.
I need advice from the alpha porters on what might be wrong here and
how to proceed. debian-alpha cc:ed.
