#12439 closed bug (fixed)

gcc 2 won't build a non-position-independent executable

Reported by: simonsouth Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: System Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: yes Platform: All

Description

(This is the legacy-buildtools equivalent of #12430.)

The attached patches align gcc 2.95 and ld 2.17 with recent changes to their new-world counterparts. With the patches applied

  • The default behaviour of gcc and ld is not changed.
  • Users can ask gcc to build a non-position-independent executable with the -fno-pic option.
  • Position-independent executables are built by default, using the -fPIC compiler setting and by explicitly specifying -pie to the linker.
  • An INTERP segment is included in every executable with a link to /system/runtime_loader.

binutils (legacy): ld: Set ELF interpreter to /system/runtime_loader

comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by simonsouth

I've updated both patches. The first patch additionally

  • Refactors LINK_SPEC to pass both the --no-add-needed and --allow-shlib-undefined options to the linker whenever a dynamically linked executable is being built. This instructs the linker to not recursively add shared libraries as dependencies but to allow undefined symbols in them (expected for BeOS and Haiku).
  • Patches the linker to skip recursively resolving the dependencies of a shared library if the --no-add-needed and --allow-shlib-undefined options are set. This was made the default behaviour of ld after binutils 2.17 (which is why this issue doesn't come up when building with gcc 4); effectively this change backports binutils commit 4706eab, which was a refinement of 8fbb09e.

You should find this allows the build to complete without those missing-library warnings.

I've modified the description in the second patch to use a short GUID for the commit it mentions.
