[Pythonmac-SIG] newbie process question about building MachoPython
Sat, 29 Jun 2002 02:42:38 -0700
(Please forgive me if the answer to this question should have been
obvious: I'm quite new to building the CVS tree from scratch.)
I've been having trouble building MachoPython CVS head on OS 10.1.5
(latest released devtools). I use the fink environment for most of my
unixy stuff, and so set CPPFLAGS to -I/sw/include and LDFLAGS to
-L/sw/lib. Building has been giving errors linking the Parser module
(can't find library dl) and also compiling some other modules (can't
find header dl<something>). I believe I've found the two problems in
Makefile.pre.in underlying the failures--
1. The PGEN build line doesn't add $(LDFLAGS)
2. The CPPFLAGS and CFLAGS defines don't include @CPPFLAGS@ and @CFLAGS@.
--and I've prepared a context-diff patch that fixes those problems.
So now comes the process question:
1. Should I submit a bug in sourceforge?
2. Should I submit the patch in sourceforge?
I know that the python.org culture page says the answers to 1 and 2 are
yes, but I wanted to check first given that this is kind of a Mac-y
thing rather than a general thing.
Thanks in advance for gentle responses.
