Bug#674260: RM: aspectc++ [kfreebsd-i386 kfreebsd-amd64] -- ROM; FTBFS on kfreebsd
The package aspectc++ does not build on kfreebsd since April now. The
reason for this is, as I suspect, a bug or insufficienty in the fnctl()
implementation on kfreebsd. In order to speed up compilation (ac++ is
dead slow), the compilation is run in parallel where possible. However,
each compilation step needs to store information about the found join
points and woven advice instantiation in project wide "aspect
repository", which needs to be guarded against concurrent updates from
ac++ processes. And this locking now seems to fail fatally since
upstream release 1.1.
Before 1.1, AFAIUI locking didn't work either, and you ended up with a
corrupt aspect repository -- rending the package pretty much useless
IMO, but YMMV.
This has been documented as #633402, and porters have already been asked
for help. Unfortunately, no solution could be found. Therefore, I have
to ask for an architecture specific removal in order to allow the
package to migrate to testing.
