Using hrev46224 (haiku-nightly-hrev46224-x86gcc2hybrid-anyboot.tar.xz).

With bug:10087 being fixed, running configure on a freshly cloned haiku git repo (hrev46225) now gives the following error:

BTW, I have workarounded this problem by setting the HAIKU_CC_x86_gcc2 environment variable to the path of gcc binary on my system.

To blame is hrev46157, the removal of the which script from the image. Either it should be re-added or the "which" package needs to be added for all architectures.

Our which script didn't work in chrooted build environment (for example haikuporter) as /etc/profile somehow wasn't sourced, that's why I replaced it with a binary version.

I just added the package for x86_gcc2 to the repo, however I can't test it on other archs. Anyone wants to contribute packages ?

Also, I'm still unsure if it should be a depends of haiku_devel, or if we should leave people installing it. Seems not having which is very unexpected in most configure scripts. It's not part of POSIX, however.

POSIX or not, I think which is mostly taken for granted. I think we should add it as a "mandatory" package (cf. the root Jamfile).

Resolution: fixed

Hopefully fixed in hrev46266. Forgot to mention the ticket number in the commit message. Untested on other non-x86 archs.
