(dev0 here) i just thought you might be interested in the following situation:
i'm in progress of building an LFS-3.0pre3 on mdk8. i have latex/tetex
installed. the version is 1.0.7-21mdk (rpm's)
with the texconfig from the mdk-tetex package the configure of gcc fails
giving me the following:
checking for texconfig ...true
and then stops. no keys are accepted. killing it via ctrl-c gives me the
/usr/bin/texconfig: line 3: 3813 Broken pipe $DIALOG_PROG
--title "$version setup utility" "$@"
i then figured out, that the texconfig is in the tetex-rpm and deinstalled
all the tetex/latex-stuff. after that it worked fine. so my suggestion is,
that gcc builds some kind of documentation (maybe) if it finds texconfig,
resp. tetex/latex. if it doesn't find texconfig it runs through just fine
(and, of course, not building whatever it needed tetex/latex for)
so, maybe there is room for a gcc-patch, keeping it from building this piece
of stuff wheter tetex/latex is there or not. (cuz i never had those before i
switched to mdk, and therefore never used/needed them. and for building an
LFS they should be less important). i suggest, because there might be ppl,
not wanting to kill all their tetex/latex stuff like me, to just disable the
texconfig-check in gcc's configure.
i even couldn't test, if this error occours with other versions of
tetex/latex, cuz i never used it, and therefore have no knowledge about it.
unfortunatley, i'm not that advanced to programming, so i am not able to
supply such a patch, but i think it shouldn't be a big problem for you guru's
to solve it (the one or the other way)
with best regards,
gerd aka 'dev0'
p.s. sorry for my crappy english.
