Hi, is anybody able to solve this problem that seems to occure only on 64bit archs. I compared the build logs and found: make: Entering directory `/build/buildd/loki-22.214.171.124/lokisrc' cc -g -Wall -O2 -W -Wall -pedantic -ffloat-store -Wno-long-long -I../include -c -o param_parse.o param_parse.c cc -c -g -Wall -O2 -W -Wall -pedantic -ffloat-store -Wno-long-long -I../include -DYY_NO_UNPUT param_lex.c In file included from /usr/include/sys/stat.h:107, from param_lex.l:25: /usr/include/bits/stat.h:65: error: expected identifier or '(' before '[' token make: *** [param_lex.o] Error 1 make: Leaving directory `/build/buildd/loki-126.96.36.199/lokisrc'
Here's the difference: in <sys/stat.h>, the following occurs: #if __WORDSIZE == 64 long int __unused; #else # ifndef __USE_FILE_OFFSET64 unsigned long int __unused4; unsigned long int __unused5; # else __ino64_t st_ino; /* File serial number. */ # endif #endifSo on 64-bit platforms, a field called __unused is defined. But in param_lex.c, the following code exists:
#if defined(__FreeBSD__) #include <sys/cdefs.h> #else #define __unused #endif So that code in <sys/stat.h> comes out to: long int ;which isn't valid. The solution is not to define things that aren't in your namespace, so flex shouldn't #define __unused, or use it, for that matter.
