Great, thanks for taking the time to reproduce. > But in my different machine (Fedora 16 x86) I can't reproduce. That makes me wonder if it is related to the gcc or make version. I couldn't reproduce the problem on my gcc-4.1 system, though. My make is: $ make --version GNU Make 3.81 [...] > $ git reset --hard v1.8.1 # back to v1.8.1 > $ make clean > $ make all install # this git works fine After this step, what does builtin/.depend/fetch.o.d contain? It should show a dependency of builtin/fetch.o on string-list (among other things). > $ git pull # top commit 9a6c84e6, "Merge > git://ozlabs.org/~paulus/gitk" > $ make all install Can you try running "make -d builtin/fetch.o" here instead of "make all install"? Can you confirm that it reads builtin/.depend/fetch.o, and that fetch.o gets rebuilt (you should even be able to see the list of "newer than" dependencies in the debug output)? Another thing to double-check: does it work if you instead run make all install COMPUTE_HEADER_DEPENDENCIES=no ? -Peff -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
