Greetings Gimp Gurus, I have run into a baffling problem when trying to compile the gimp (1.2.5 and 1.3.x) on a RH9 system. As far as I can tell, it seems limited to the gimp: I can configure and compile other tarballs without any problem. What makes it weird is the workaround. Details follow.
When I have /usr/local/lib in my search path (as I usually do, via /etc/ld.so.conf and /sbin/ldconfig) the gimp configure step hiccups: ... config.status: creating Makefile config.status: creating config.h ./config.status: line 1332: 29673 Segmentation fault sed -f $tmp/undefs.sed $tmp/in >$tmp/out config.status: executing depfiles commands ... and config.h doesn't get built. Somehow, somewhere, something is crashing sed. If I take /usr/local/lib out of my library path, it all works. My initial thought was that there were duplicate libraries between /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib, but I haven't found any. When I checked configure.log, there was no hint of any trouble. I have noticed that /sbin/ldconfig complains that a number of libgphoto_xxx.so.0 files aren't symlinks, but they all seem to be actual executables. How this relates I have no idea. An additional effect that I have noticed only with the gimp, is that make crashes repeatedly during the compile. I was wondering if this meant I was running out of temp disk, but I still have close to 2G left on the root filesystem, so that isn't it; I have tried compiling with and without /usr/local/lib in the ld.so.conf file and both compiles crash (segfault) after compiling for a long time. Note that if I simply reissue the make command the compile picks up where it left off, and eventually I get a brand new gimp. Has anybody seen problems like these, and can you suggest any possible causes or other places to look? It's not a show-stopper, but it certainly has been leaving me baffled.
