Texinfo clarification needed for Chapter 5 build

Reported by: Armin Owned by: lfs-book@…

Severity: normal Keywords:


When building texinfo in Chapter 5, the configure script outputs the following:

make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/armin/src/texinfo-6.3/tp/Texinfo/Convert/XSParagraph'
/usr/bin/xsubpp -typemap /tools/lib/perl5/5.24.0/ExtUtils/typemap TestXS.xs > TestXS.xsc && mv TestXS.xsc TestXS.c

make: *** [Makefile:957: TestXS_la-TestXS.lo] Error 1
checking whether we can build Perl extension (XS) modules... no

I've had an user misinterpret this and think of it as an error (probably due to Makefile part), trying to rebuild chapter 5 and perl countless times, just so I could verify that same happens here and that it isn't an issue.

I think it would be nice to either explicitly disable this test using --disable-perl-xs or note that it isn't an issue.
