|Description||MPS xcppgc (Mac OS X PowerPC) is built with outdated compiler flags|
job000601: "Making the MPS fails under Mac OS X 10.2 with an error to do with #line directives"
For all xcppgc varieties, some GCC compiler warnings are suppressed. This was done in order to make the build work with Apple's faulty header files in early versions of Mac OS X.
Additionally, for varieties variety.*i (internal), the level of debug info to be generated is selected using an outdated flag. (It is unknown whether this affects the debug info generated). This was done in order to make the build work with Apple's faulty compiler in early versions of Mac OS X.
The flags concerned are:
-Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-unused -Wno-long-long -no-cpp-precomp -g3
(For details, see
None of these outdated flags are required any more in Mac OS X 10.4 (Xcode v 2.3; powerpc-apple-darwin8-gcc-4.0.1). Apple has cleared up its header files and compiler, and the MPS builds fine. See for example xci3gc.gmk#8.
