Debug­ging lang/mono – 2nd round

Today I had again some ener­gy to look at why mono fails to build on FreeB­SD-cur­rent.

I decid­ed to do a debug-build of mono. This did not work ini­tial­ly, I had to pro­duce some patch­es. 🙁

Does this mean nobody is doing debug builds of mono on FreeB­SD?

I have to say, this expe­ri­ence with lang/mono is com­plete­ly unsat­is­fy­ing.

Ok, bot­tom line, either the debug build seems to pre­vent a race con­di­tion in most cas­es (I had a lot less lock­ups for each of the two builds I did).

What­ev­er it is, I do not care ATM (if the con­fig­ure stuff is look­ing at the archi­tec­ture of the sys­tem, it may be the case that the i386-portbld-freebsdX does not enable some impor­tant stuff which would be enabled when run with i486-portbld-freebsdX or bet­ter). Here are the patch­es I used in case some­one is inter­est­ed (warn­ing, copy&paste con­vert­ed tabs to spaces, you also have to apply the map.c (a gen­er­at­ed file… maybe a touch of the right file would allow to apply this patch in the nor­mal patch stage) relat­ed stuff when the build fails, else there is some pars­er error in mono):
