[PCC-88] pcc is still unable to detect freetype2 Created: 22/Aug/09  Updated: 04/May/14

This is an update of: http://pcc.ludd.ltu.se/jira/browse/PCC-76

A configure script still failed to detect freetype2, when using pcc.
Attached is an updated testcase.

With the spaces (one to lots of) before #include, pcc bail out with:

_scrap/ft2$ pcc -I/usr/include/freetype2 ft2.c -c -o ft2_pcc.o
ft2.c, line 16: syntax error

There are 2 Problems here.
1. pcc failed to compile that code.
    (The standard might say, that the "#" is expected to be in the first column,
    but the attached code works with gcc and tcc)

2. The failure message say "line 16", while the source has only 5 lines

A lot more header checks are affected by this bug.
Example from: diff -u bin_gcc/_configure.txt bin_pcc/_configure.txt

-checking for sys/mount.h... yes
-checking for sys/statfs.h... yes
-checking for sys/sysctl.h... yes
-checking for sys/user.h... yes
-checking for sys/vfs.h... yes
-checking for netinet/ip.h... yes
-checking for net/if.h... yes
-checking for net/if_arp.h... yes
+checking for sys/mount.h... no
+checking for sys/statfs.h... no
+checking for sys/sysctl.h... no
+checking for sys/user.h... no
+checking for sys/vfs.h... no
+checking for netinet/ip.h... no
+checking for net/if.h... no
+checking for net/if_arp.h... no

More locations exists, but they are striped.

This is a cpp regression!
(How can the topic be updated?)

Freetype2 and the above headers where detected with the old cpp

I added some logging to pushfile(name) and found out, that fastscan() returned from the included file
before the "syntax error" came up.

The example still fail to compile with pcc, but the message is different:

_scrap/ft2$ pcc -I/usr/include/freetype2 ft2.c -c -o ft2_pcc.o
/usr/include/freetype2/freetype/config/ftconfig.h:103: error: "Unsupported size of `int' type!"

freetype need defines for CHAR_BIT, UINT_MAX and ULONG_MAX, but limits.h from glibc
skip the defines and use the compiler provided limits (that is missing in libpcc_limits.h)

Extending cc/cc/cc.c to export __CHAR_BIT__, __INT_MAX__ and __LONG_MAX__
( http://pcc.ludd.ltu.se/jira/secure/attachment/10106/_diff_define_max.txt )
together with extending libpcc_limits.h to use these values to export
( http://pcc.ludd.ltu.se/jira/secure/attachment/10108/_diff_extend_limits.txt )
let pcc compile this example.

The attached Patches fixes these for i386, but including macdefs.h is not nice.
We get the needed defines (storage size and the MAX_* values) but the rest of macdefs.h
might have unwanted effects.
MULTITARGET was also not tested

Updated Patch:
Add also INT_MIN and LONG_MIN (needed by WIne)

As far as I can see all these bugs are fixed now.
