This was most likely a (chipcard) hardware issue. It went away after polishing the contact pads for a bit. Possibly my laptop reader applies more force...

alonbl added a comment to T2049: conflicting pkg-config detection and initialization.

Hi,

I can still see that qt[1] is using the simplified pkg macros[2], while the
configure.ac is using proprietary method[3].

We are still missing PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG macro in configure.ac to make pkg
macros happy, this can remove all AC_PATH_PROG(PKG_CONFIG, pkg-config, no)
executions, see pinentry-0.9.5-build.patch, as you have PKG_CONFIG set.

The other changes to use PKG_CHECK_MODULES are optional but is there any reason
why not to use this macro instead of executing the pkg-config manually? This
macro has the advantage of allowing override via environment, and append proper
help.

If you like I can rebase this old patch set.

There was a long drawn out discussion as to the validity of "-hardfloat" in the
triplet name. You can peruse at https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=584052 .

I am not a dev and have pretty much given up. The Gentoo devs are adamant that this
is an upstream problem.

I can't find an explanation why gentoo inserts "-hardfloat". I doubt that this
is willy-nilly and as long as this has not been figured out, there is a
possibility of a different ABI and thus we can't simply alias it. Can you
please work with Kristian or someone else from gentoo to figure this out?

Thanks for binutils link.

Again, the host is not my invention. I linked it before and I'll do it again:
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Raspberry_Pi.

Gentoo's cross-compile tool, crossdev, suggests using "-hardfloat-" and "-
softfloat-" in the vendor field.

And here is how binutils handles this (they don't shy away from asterisks):

Is armv7a-hardfloat-linux-gnu guaranteed to be ABI compatible to some other arm
triplet? If that is the case, I suggest to either drop your(?) invention of
-hardfloat- or, better, to work with the config mainatiners to make sure it is
viewed as an alias.

How does binutils handle this triplet?

If you can describe the user base for that triplet, I may add an exception to
mkheader to get things done faster.

Nsane457 added a comment to T2370: libgpg-error: cross-compiling fails with "src/syscfg/lock-obj-pub.linux-gnueabi.h': No such file or directory".

I'm sorry if your understanding of valid hostnames, acceptable by GNU projects, is
two decades old but this project happens to be the only one that assumes there
exists a finite list of valid hostnames without using pattern matching.

Using https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Raspberry_Pi and a hostname of armv7a-
hardfloat-linux-gnu, with the notable exception of libgpg-error, I have been able
to compile and install all other GNU utilities included the core set of Gentoo
Linux, whether via the package's giving configure script or by use of autoreconf.

Hare are just a few of such GNU packages that I have personally been able to build
and install using the hostname "armv7a-hardfloat-linux-gnu":

coreutils-8.25
bash-4.3_p42
diffutils-3.3
findutils-4.6.0
grep-2.25
groff-1.22.3
gzip-1.8
tar-1.29
glibc-2.23
less-483
gawk-4.1.3
which-2.21
nettle-3.2
glibc-2.23
gcc-5.3.0
readline-6.3_p8
nano-2.5.3

The only other GNU package that doesn't compile for me is autogen. But that's due
to a lack of cross-compile support. It otherwise builds just fine natively on
armv7a-hardfloat-linux-gnu.

I would appreciate it if you could provide a specific GNU package using autotools
that you assert should fail to support such a hostname, other than this one, so
that I may provide a build log demonstrating that it indeed does.

Sorry, if _you_ want support for your _new target_ you should make sure that it
is supported by the GNU autotools which is used by a lot of software. This will
the soon be used by GnuPG etc.

It is entirely fine to point us new config versions with support for your
target. We will the update them in our packages - this is how we have done it
for close to 2 decades.

I would except that config.sub already validates such names as 'armv7a-hardfloat-
linux-gnueabi' so there is nothing to fix. It is libgpg-error that doesn't. If
you feel it should invalidate such names please report that to the GNU config
folks instead. Their repo is at git://git.sv.gnu.org/config.git. Otherwise
pleases fix libgpg-error.

The host naming scheme accepted by this project is really just Debian oriented.
There is nothing saying you have to aid other distro's hostnames but I have yet to
witness a project more unfriendly to non-Debianesque distros that libgpg-error.
You don't have to accept the patch. Understandable, since mkheader would not
ideally be the way to go. But you should at least be open to the idea of
supporting the more liberal host naming schemes that other distros employ.

Nsane457 added a comment to T2370: libgpg-error: cross-compiling fails with "src/syscfg/lock-obj-pub.linux-gnueabi.h': No such file or directory".

Whether or not config.sub is up to date should be irrelevant as to whether
libgpg-error should be able to handle CPU variants and the second field of a
HOST. It is supposed to be treated as a freeform field (see
http://airs.com/ian/configure/configure_4.html). As to the precision of the r.e,
it is not supposed to fix or mimic the logic of config.sub. It is to
effectively pigeonhole some HOST strings to a valid header file. Can you give me
a scenario where arm*linux-gnueabi shouldn't map to
lock-obj-pub.arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi.h?

Also, what is the source of your assertion that armv7a-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi
is not a valid canonical triplet? Everything that I have ever read about HOST
strings such as "armv7a-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi" is that configure scripts treat
them as valid and parse them with case statements (as demonstrated here
http://airs.com/ian/configure/configure_4.html). They don't demand that the
end-user pass a generic version of HOST, like "arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi". The
only reason I chose to patch mkheader.c instead or configure.ac was to build on
the mapping logic already there.

werner added a comment to T2370: libgpg-error: cross-compiling fails with "src/syscfg/lock-obj-pub.linux-gnueabi.h': No such file or directory".

config.sub is indeed intended to canonicalize triplets. Thus a an up-to-date
config.sub should fix this. In any case you can always override the guessed
value like this:

  -/configure --build=$(build-aux/config.guess) --host=arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi

I fear that a single r.e. is not precise enough; config.sub has more complicated
rules.
