ballapete added a comment to T5268: macOS getentropy.

Tiger's /usr/include/AvailabilityMacros.h seems to provide what rndlinux.c was looking for: libgcrypt 1.9.2 just built!

Alright! Here is the error report from GCC:

There is some (partly) good news: The function getentropy() is available in the packet manager MacPorts. It has a legacy support:

To do that, I'd like to know, when the symbol getentropy was added.

Wouldn't it be better to move these failures as a single one into the configure script that it definitely can tell "This Mac has getentropy()"?

I applied the two patches on Mac OS X 10.5.8, Leopard, to random/rndlinux.c, resulting in this unified diff:

In the next few days I'll be able to boot into Leopard, Mac OS X 10.5.8, to test this. Right now it seems that I need to fix a few problems with updated software sources…

To support old macOS (< 10.12), I think that code should be something like this:

After libgcrypt 1.9.0 first built on Tiger and 'make check' succeeded I ran 'make clean' and applied the changes to random/rndlinux.c. A simple make succeeded without problem. 'make check' then ran into problems, spitting out many times messages messages like these:

I tested building on Ubuntu 8.04 (gcc-4.2) and got same error about cipher_bulk_ops_t. Applying patch fixed that problem.

Thanks for testing. However, I do not believe patch has been correctly applied.

The "Portfile" that conducts the build process has the patch contained, I sent you the list of files being patched, and here is the end of my translated patch set:

In "src/cipher-proto.h", try removing typedef and leaving just forward declaration of structure.

Performing only this change leads consistently to the well-known error of:

Right now I am compiling with my old PowerBook in Tiger. In case a compilation fails I'll try this patch – on Tiger (Mac OS X 10.4.11)! It's a bit more primitive than Leopard.

This happens on at least PPC Mac OS X 10.4.11, Tiger. Compiler is by default Apple's

Cause is that the declaration of 'INADDR_LOOPBACK' is hidden behind some guards. The
two external links document the situation, they also offer patches, either the attached
one or this addition for src/assuan-socket.c:

//fix missing define in MacOSX 10.4 Tiger
#ifndef INADDR_LOOPBACK

#define INADDR_LOOPBACK (u_int32_t)0x7f000001

#endif

In ten days I'll be at home again with my Apple PowerBook G4 and might have time to
check the situation in Mac OS X 10.5, Leopard.
