The explanation on why my problem appears is explained here: tl;dr, having wine installed does cause this issue, because then you can run windows binaries and configure doesn't detect that we are cross-compiling (and doesn't skip the runtime checks).

I recommend building in a clean chroot using makechrootpkg like official devs do. That's also how packages in my binary repository are built and what works for me. Note that in this environment WINE wouldn't even be installed (at least not for this package as it doesn't depend on it). Maybe you have something installed/configured in your build environment that makes the configuration script think it should/can run certain configuration tests when it actually cannot. (Having WINE installed in the build env shouldn't cause this issue on its own, though.)

Hi, right now, building this package gives me errors about undefined references to iconv_ostream_create. I found out that the configure script doesn't correctly detect iconv: it prints out "checking for working iconv... no". The reason it doesn't detect it is that after compiling the test program via i686-w64-mingw32-gcc, the script fails to run the program with these errors (from config.log):

01fc:err:module:import_dll Library libiconv-2.dll (which is needed by L"Z:\\home\\vk\\.local\\aur\\mingw-w64-gettext\\src\\gettext-0.22.5\\build-i686-w64-mingw32\\gettext-runtime\\conftest.exe") not found

libiconv-2.dll does exist, it's just that wine doesn't have the correct prefix. With this patch:

iconv gets properly detected, and I was able to successfully build mingw-w64-gettext then. I unfortunately don't think this is how things should be done. It could be that I did something to my system and the wine prefix isn't available when building AUR packages. Any ideas?

edit: In mingw-w64-curl, there seems to be a similar problem:

@xantares: The comment from "patlefort" was from before the "Fix checksum" commit got pushed, it's fixed now.

xantares commented on 2024-03-27 19:57 (UTC)

works fine here, maybe a network glitch ?

@stt You've already noticed yourself that it hangs when building libiconv. That means the comment would be better placed under the mingw-w64-libiconv package. Apparently another user has already noticed the same problem there. Note that I haven't run into the problem last time I built the package (So 17 Mai 2020).

Build is failing - its locking up after linking libiconv and is never finishing.

Thanks for your fast answer, and sorry, I thought the error was in this package, but in fact it was in another one.

xantares commented on 2021-01-06 13:03 (UTC)

I cannot reproduce, can you post the error ?
