- Subject: [64bit] Missing library causing build of perl-PAR-Packer to fail
In order to build biber.exe, I need to build the perl module
PAR::Packer. The build fails as follows:
g++ main.o ppresource.coff -s -Wl,--enable-auto-import
-Wl,--export-all-symbols -Wl,--enable-auto-image-base -fstack-protector
-L/usr/lib/perl5/5.14/x86_64-cygwin-threads/CORE -lperl -ldl -lcrypt
main.o: In function `xs_init':
reference to `boot_Win32CORE'
On 32-bit Cygwin, boot_Win32CORE is provided by the library
But on 64-bit Cygwin the corresponding library is missing from
/usr/lib/perl5/5.14/x86_64-cygwin-threads/auto/Win32CORE. Can we get a
new build of perl that includes it?
P.S. My attempt to build perl-PAR-Packer is based on Yaakov's cygport
file in Cygwin Ports. This includes a patch for version 1.013 of
PAR::Packer. Version 1.014 is available, and I would rather build that
version, but it's not obvious to me how to adapt the patch. Yaakov,
could you help me with that?
