I decided to give my dev environment a spring cleaning, and tried
build-svn-deps-win.pl to build the dependencies (great work BTW,
looking forward to having less dependency-building-worries -- thanks).
However, I ran into a problem when the testsuite of pcre was run:
(complete output in attachment)
When testing is complete, review test output in the
Test project C:/research/svn/client_build/deps/build/httpd/srclib/pcre
Start 1: pcre_test_bat
1/4 Test #1: pcre_test_bat ....................***Failed Required

4/4 Test #4: pcre_stringpiece_test ............ Passed 0.03 sec
75% tests passed, 1 tests failed out of 4
Total Test time (real) = 3.08 sec
The following tests FAILED:
1 - pcre_test_bat (Failed)
Errors while running CTest
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'echo' : return code '0x8'
Failure testing pcre (exit code: 512) at
C:\research\svn\client_build\deps\build-svn-deps-win.pl line 245.
When I look at the test output in .../Testing/Temporary, the
LastTest.log contains the following:
---- Testing 8-bit library ----
Test 1: "Main functionality (Compatible with Perl >= 5.10)"
Test 1: "Test with Study Override"
Test 2: "API, errors, internals, and non-Perl stuff"
failed comparison: fc /n
** Test 2 requires a lot of stack. PCRE can be configured to
** use heap for recursion. Otherwise, to pass Test 2
** you generally need to allocate 8 mb stack to PCRE.
** See the 'pcrestack' page for a discussion of PCRE's
** stack usage.
So perhaps this test won't run on my ancient Windows XP (no idea why
others wouldn't get this error, and I would).
Googling a bit, I found that "stack recursion" can be disabled in
pcre, to avoid this problem, so perhaps the solution is to disable
stack recursion when configuring pcre? The PCRE configuration summary
in the build output currently says:
-- No stack recursion .............. : OFF
Or perhaps another solution is better? I don't know much about
(building) pcre ...
Another approach might be that I not run the testsuite of pcre, but
I'm not sure what I would miss then.
Anyone any suggestions?
BTW: currently it's hard to redirect the output of
build-svn-deps-win.pl to a file. I scraped the output of my console
window, because redirecting it with "> buildout.log" would only
capture part of the output (perhaps not everything is written to
stdout). Automatically tee-ing the output to a file would be a nice
improvement to the script :-). Just a thought ...
