Somehow the environment variables of /etc/makepkg.conf are not passed to the configure script (anymore?). This led to a failed build. Manually passing them successfully builds ekho.

I am open for any feedback.

ok, found a 2 line working patch on the current PKGBUILD, probably need to upstream to the original authors:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index ce46d58..dc44f54 100644
@@ -29,7 +29,8 @@ prepare() {

then :
export LDFLAGS=-lomp ; makepkg

Still the same problem with patched version.

In src/ekho-7.7.1/config.log :

configure:13448: g++ -o conftest -g -O2   conftest.cpp -lestools -lncurses
           -leststring -lestbase -lespeak -lsndfile -lpthread  >&5

/usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/10.1.0/../../../../lib/ undefined reference toGOMP_barrier'

omp_get_thread_num is both defined in: * /usr/include/c++/10.1.0/parallel/compiletime_settings.h * /usr/include/omp.h

So instead of the patch, I put export LDFLAGS=-lomp juste before make in the build() function. The configure ans compilation corks, but it still fails at link time because of missing libomp functions. the LDFLAGS seems to not be take in account at the link time.

I was annoyed that ekho was not building anymore, so I found some time today to fix it. I'm not sure what changed to require these changes, but the following made it build for me:

@Huulivoide: Does the package still build for you without these changes? If not, could you please apply them?

dkasak commented on 2019-12-22 11:17 (UTC)

I'm getting a build failure:

checking for main in -lespeak... yes

@Vitrum-cnkj34kr8 libestools should be provided by the festival package.

Here is a PKGBUILD to update to 7.7.1

dkasak commented on 2019-07-17 08:59 (UTC)

I'm not using ekho anymore, so I'm disowning it so someone else can jump in.
