New submission from Chris <christopher.e.kees at usace.army.mil>:


Our group ended  up needing a non-universal x86_64 framework build 
because we had  trouble building some modules with the non-framework 
build. We had  to modify the makefile in two places to get it to work. 
First we fixed a place where configure generates '-arch_only i386'. That 
fixes the the build phase. Then we got rid of some install targets that  
were trying to pull  in Carbon code. 

The first problem seems like it could easily be fixed by somebody who 
understands the configure script. 

I'm not sure what's going on with the second problem. Is --disable-
toolbox-glue not being handled  correctly when the install target is 
generated? It seems like the build phase is skipping the Carbon 
dependent extension modules correctly but install is trying to pull in 
modules that  depend on those disabled modules. FYI, here's what  were 

./configure --prefix=${HOME} --with-cxx-main='/usr/bin/mpicxx -arch 
x86_64'\  --enable-framework=${HOME} --disable-toolbox-glue 
CC='/usr/bin/mpicc -arch \ x86_64' CXX='/usr/bin/mpicxx -arch x86_64' 
LDFLAGS='-framework Accelerate \ -arch x86_64'

Edit Makefile to replace  -arch_only i386 with -arch_only x86_64 and 
remove frameworkinstallmaclib and frameworkinstallapps from the 
altinstall: target.
diff Makefile Makefile~
<              -lSystem -lSystemStubs -arch_only x86_64 -install_name 
compatibility_version $(VERSION) -current_version $(VERSION) ;\
>              -lSystem -lSystemStubs -arch_only i386 -install_name 
compatibility_version $(VERSION) -current_version $(VERSION) ;\
<                 sharedinstall oldsharedinstall 
>                 sharedinstall oldsharedinstall frameworkinstallmaclib 
frameworkinstallapps frameworkaltinstallunixtools
