Re: openssl-0.9.8g makedepend 'warnings' -- *are* these a problem?

hi jonathan,

I'd say "Yes, they are a problem". I'm not sure what you need to fix.
Ultimately, if you don't have the programs you need out of the build, there
is a problem. It's a weird error, too - because normally configure would
detect the problem. I'd try to track down where -arch ppc (as opposed to
-arch=ppc) came from; that would deal with a lot of the trouble.

poking around a bit, i found

cat /usr/include/stdarg.h
/* This file is public domain. */
-> /* GCC uses its own copy of this header */
#if defined(__GNUC__)
#include_next <stdarg.h>
#elif defined(__MWERKS__)
#include "mw_stdarg.h"
#error "This header only supports __MWERKS__."


cat /usr/lib/gcc/powerpc-apple-darwin9/4.2.1/include/stdarg.h

i tried mod'ing CPPFLAGS with the .../4.2.1/include/stdarg.h path --
no dice. likely hard-coded somewhere (will look).

so, as workaround, prior to configure

mv /usr/include/stdarg.h /usr/include/stdarg.h.ORIG
cp /usr/lib/gcc/powerpc-apple-darwin9/4.2.1/include/stdarg.h

successfully removes the

makedepend: warning: cryptlib.c (reading /usr/include/stdarg.h, line
4): cannot find include file "stdarg.h"

warnings, but not the,

makedepend: warning: cannot open "ppc"

which are still there.

that said, mmake/install complete fine. and downstream usage of the
resultant openssl bins/libs seems ok.

so, the "ppc" warning may be just a syntactical warning ... but would
be good to know for sure. now to try to find the reason/src of the
