GNU make extension corrections?


#1

Now that gr-qtgui is back, I again get the 3 “comments” when
bootstrapping from there, as well as 1 from gr-trellis (which has
been all along). Can someone correct this (I’ve written before about
it), or should I enter it into Trac as a low-priority fix? I’m sure
it’s something simple, but I won’t be able to get to it for at least
1.5 weeks. - MLD

% sh bootstrap
gr-qtgui/src/lib/Makefile.am:29: %'-style pattern rules are a GNU make extension gr-qtgui/src/lib/Makefile.am:33:%’-style pattern rules are a GNU
make extension
gr-qtgui/src/lib/Makefile.am:36: `%’-style pattern rules are a GNU
make extension

gr-trellis/doc/Makefile.am:51: `%’-style pattern rules are a GNU make
extension

I’ll take care of these, but please enter it in Trac.

Michael,

Please enter it as a bug, and then fix at will :wink:

Thanks!

I noticed that in ticket:142 < http://www.gnuradio.org/trac/ticket/
142 >, which is part of the “GNU make extensions” issue of this
email, the end result is:
" * status changed from assigned to closed.
* resolution set to wontfix.
GNU make has become a required tool."

I haven’t changed the way I’m doing the bootstrap, and am still
getting these messages … yet the compile still works [0] on OSX, so
in what way has “GNU make” become a required tool, or is it in the
process of? Thanks! - MLD

[0] At least for the GNU make extension found in gr-trellis, so I
presume it also would for gr-qtgui, though I haven’t gotten the
dependencies to compile just yet so I don’t know this for a fact.

It was decided that we would not change things to avoid using the
existing GNU Make extensions that are in gr-trellis and gr-qtgui. So
nothing has changed in the code, only in policy :slight_smile:

“In the process of”

I’m not sure if we’ll be able to get rid of the warnings. I think
they’re coming from automake, but I haven’t confirmed that.

OK. No problem.

I just tried the bootstrap commands individually and, yes, it’s
automake. - MLD
