Bug Description

Binary package hint: guile-1.8

I got this build failure from Launchpad Buildd system:

I'm only pasting the relevant failure here:

/bin/bash ../../libtool --tag=CC --mode=compile gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../.. -I../../include -I../../include -pthread
libtool: compile: gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../.. -I../../include -I../../include -pthread -g -O2 -MT guile.lo -MD -MP -MF .depIn file included from /usr/include/libguile.h:30,
                 from guile.c:26:
/usr/include/libguile/__scm.h:412: error: conflicting types for 'jmp_buf'
/usr/include/setjmp.h:49: note: previous declaration of 'jmp_buf' was here
make[5]: *** [guile.lo] Error 1

By investigating, I found that this is a bug that Debian has fixed ( by adding a patch in a new upstream release.

So either merge with the new release or just use the do-not-redefine-jmp-buf.diff patch in the release currently in Ubuntu. I have attached the patch here.

This bug was fixed in the package guile-1.8 - 1.8.7+1-1ubuntu1

guile-1.8 (1.8.7+1-1ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian unstable, remaining changes: (LP: #401816)
    - Build with -Wno-error.
    - Build with thread support. Some guile-using programs like autogen need it.
    - Add debian/guile-1.8-libs.shlibs: Thread support breaks ABI, bump the soname.

guile-1.8 (1.8.7+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Incorporate new upstream stable release.

  * Do not redefine jmp_buf in a public header, rather define
    scm_jump_buf, etc. Thanks to <email address hidden> and Kurt Roeckx
    <email address hidden>, and to Ben Hutchings <email address hidden> for the
    patch. (closes: 527527, 506684)

  * Add support for Renesas SuperH architecture. Thanks to Nobuhiro
    Iwamatsu <email address hidden>. (closes: 531378)
