[SOLVED] libtool ar segmentation fault when building older gcc version

On several machines (based on AMD Threadripper 1950x, Intel Haswell or Skylake processors) I unable to build aur gcc7 or community gcc8 (using community PKGBUILD) packages due to ar segmentation fault:

ix.io/1S0X

On kernel log I get:

First it happened with freshly installed AMD machine, but after reinstalling Arch everything is ok. On other machines I get same error, but reinstall is not the way I would like to use.  I used !buildflags and !makeflags - same segfault happens. At the same time some other Haswell machines never get this segfault.

Re: [SOLVED] libtool ar segmentation fault when building older gcc version

ar: /home/eugen/Software/gcc7/src/gcc-build/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/libstdc++-v3/src/.libs/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.26' not found (required by /usr/lib/libLLVM-8.so)

That appears to be the problem, no idea why a gcc build would use llvm though.

Please add --log to your makepkg command and post the logfiles it creates.

faulty_build.log

I removed parallel building option in makepkg.conf on both fault and healthy machines (AMD with reinstalled arch, same error before reinstall) to match the building output lines. Here is the log from healthy machine:

healthy_build.log

Comparing these logs I only found the differences in pdflatex existence and last line of ar command (order of  files differs but the content is the same).

Thanks for your suggestion but it seems to me the warning always appears when building older gcc versions. You can see the same warning in healthy log. I don't understand why do we need libLLVM, it was installed as a dependency for mesa package.

Re: [SOLVED] libtool ar segmentation fault when building older gcc version

Removing llvm-libs solves the problem and helps building older versions of gcc. Some machines experience this problem, some others do not.
Before using older gcc version I have to remove llvm-libs every time.

Gentoo users also have faced the problem. For unknown reasons binutils decides to load llvm libs.

Is it worth to submit a bug?

Re: [SOLVED] libtool ar segmentation fault when building older gcc version

I had a feeling this may be related the llvm gold/LTO plugin and looked at https://llvm.org/docs/GoldPlugin.html .

The introduction specifically states that ar can use that plugin.


Archlinux packages are supposed[1] to be build in clean chroots and those chroots don't have llvm-libs unless it's a dependency.
Put simply : When building any gcc version in a clean chroot this error won't occur .

I doubt very much this will be accepted as an archlinux bug.

This should be documented somewhere though, but there doesn't seem to a wiki page about building gcc yourself.
Sticky comments on the aur page of gcc packages are an alternative.



[1]
repo packages are build in clean chroots, aur packages are often build outside of chroot.

Re: [SOLVED] libtool ar segmentation fault when building older gcc version

Lone_Wolf, thank you for a such informative reply!

Anyway, the issue here is not linking llvm libs itself because after Arch reinstall I can build gcc succecfully on one of the machines even with llvm libs warning about GLIBCXX version not present. I also have computers that never meet the problem. But it still can cause segmentation fault in other systems.

It is also possible to set

LD_PRELOAD= /usr/lib/libstdc++.so

before make in PKGBUILD to evade the segfault as others do. (see AUR gcc49)
