Bug #112289, was updated on 2000-Aug-18 19:50
Here is a current snapshot of the bug.

Project: Python
Category: Core
Status: Open
Resolution: None
Bug Group: Platform-specific
Priority: 7
Summary: NetBSD1.4.2 build issue

Details: the recent fileobjects.c work done for large files (tmick) appears
broken when compiled against NetBSD1.4.2.

During the final link, you get the following output:

gcc   python.o  ../libpython2.0.a   -lutil -lm  -o python
fileobject.c:280: Undefined symbol `_TELL64' referenced from text segment

NOTE:  I didn't include the configure output.  If that
would be helpful, go ahead and indicate that in this
tracking system.

If tmick (or whoever) would like me to contact them directly,
I would happily do so.

Sent to python-dev:

1. Who reported this bug? He talked about providing more information and I
would like to speak with him. I cannot find his email address.
2. Does anybody have a NetBSD1.4.2 (or close) machine that I can get shell
access to? Do you know if they have such a machine at SourceForge that users
can get shell access to? Or failing that can someone with such a machine give
me the full ./configure and make output and maybe run this command:
   find /usr/include -name "*" -type f | xargs -l grep -nH _TELL64
and give me the output.

I got no reponse and I have no NetBSD machine on which to reproduce so, as Jeremy suggested, if I wouldn't get it by this evening then assign back to him.

Other questions:
- How old/recent is version 1.4.2 of NetBSD?
- Where is _TELL64 coming from? Not from Python code.
