Description (last modified by Xi Ruoyao)

This does build using system llvm-11.

At the moment I have not managed to build firefox-esr, or thunderbird. I am hopeful that the gentoo patches for firefox will allow it to build both of these, but I've got a lot of work to do in editing the patches to apply directly, instead of creating extra patch files, e.g. the start of the next hunk that I need to edit:

+             Delimiter::Parenthesis => ("(", ")"),

The '+ ' are unchanged lines, '+-' deleted lines, '++' added lines', but it's easy to get carried away when editing this.

I expect firefox-78.4.0 to be available on Monday, so I'll be testing the candidate for that before then on older systems.

At the moment, it looks as if the 78.3 series (ff, tbird) need three patches, but 78.4 ff has the first two already applied.

Modified the description to make it to show correct :)

I've now sorted out the patches from gentoo, and confirmed that both firefox and thunderbird will build, and also that they both still build on rustc-1.42.0 even with the patches (there is no requirement for people to upgrade to 1.47.0 until they upgrade to llvm-11). But 1.47.0 does also build on llvm-10.0.1.

Unfortunately, the main part of the patches (gentoo's third, or 0038) is huge. For firefox-78.4 that is the only patch required, but for 78.3 (which thunderbird is still using) all three will be needed (gentoo 0036, 0037, 0038 in that order).

Will build a fresh system to do measurements and final checking, and will then use whichever version of thunderbird is latest.

For the rustc tests I'm down to two failures:

    [run-make] run-make-fulldeps/long-linker-command-lines
    [run-make] run-make-fulldeps/sysroot-crates-are-unstable

The latter is an existing failure, and I see that gentoo apply a patch to disable that (along with several other tests which they regard as broken, e.g. on aarch64) - no point in doing that in BLFS. The long-linker-command-lines test maybe passes if the TMPDIR envvar is set (a closed issue from mac OS, labelled as unreplicated or soemthing like that).

Odd, I clicked on reopen but it lost that.
