#6316 closed defect (fixed)

OSX configure arithmetic error on ${ldver%.*} construct because of extra . in version number

Reported by: jwyates@… Owned by: Nigel
Priority: major Milestone: 0.21.1
Component: Ports - OSX Version: 0.21-fixes
Severity: high Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


MacOSX 10.5.6 returns an extra "minor" version number for ld:

% ld -v @(#)PROGRAM:ld PROJECT:ld64-85.2.1

Which causes:

./configure: line 1788: 82: 85.2: syntax error: invalid arithmetic operator (error token is ".2")

and prevents successful configuration.

I am running from release-0-21-fixes. The following gets me past this issue, but I suspect there are better ways to do it:

I have not completed a build yet to confirm that all is well after this fix - I have only gotten configure to move on past this issue.

I think you can just backport the #6337 fix since it looks like it's in the same piece of script.
