I reported some recent bugs to upstream and here is the status of each:-
The patch has been integrated basically as is, so the patch we are
currently using is correct and will be part of next ncurses release.
- I reported this as gcc GNATS PR 10284. You can view the details at:-
- Zack Weinberg responded to me privately saying:-
"This is clearly a glibc bug, and you should take that up with them.
However, the problem autoconf test is excessively clever and breaks a
lot on platforms that don't *really* pose a problem to ggc-page.c.
It is trying to detect a brokenness peculiar to Cygwin's fake mmap
(Windows does not provide an appropriate primitive, at least not as
part of its documented API). I will rip it out in favor of a
I doubt I can get a change pushed into 3.2.3, though."
- therefore I believe the best course of action is just keep on using the
current patch. Hopefully gcc-3.3 will have the test ripped out and
then we won't need to worry.
