gpgme --disable-largefile
Closed, ResolvedPublic


"./configure --disable-largefile" results later in a compile time error:
In file included from conversion.c:33:
gpgme.h:78:5: error: #if with no expression
This is caused by configure setting NEED__FILE_OFFSET_BITS to an empty value.
System is an Ubuntu 8.04 LTS on 32bit hardware.
No problem occures when omitting --disable-largefile.
config.log is attached.

Marcus, please make it fail more gracefully.

Why "make it fail"; why not "make it run"?
I guess (did not test) that the bug can be fixed by replacing




or by making configure always setting a nonempty value;
depending on your preferred style of programming.

Thanks in advance :-)
