#4631 closed task (fixed)

ICA: ranlib and ar (binutils) are different between the first build the second

Description

Using obdump -x shows that libfl.so (from flex) is added in the dependencies for the second build. This is to be expected since flex is not built in chapter 5, and built much after binutils in chapter 6.

Solution build flex in chapter 5 and link /usr/lib/libfl.so* to /tools/lib in "Creating Essential Files and Symlinks".

Possible side effect Several other packages may benefit from having flex executable to generate some files. But it does not show up in ICA.

Question it is not clear how the fl library is used in ar and ranlib. So is it useful?

Could we setup the bison test suite like other packages after this?

Replying to renodr:

I'll try, it is in my sandbox. But right now I do not run tests, to do ICA more effectively.

Reinstated the tests for bison. 13 failures, same as recently reported on lfs-support mailing list by Bud Rozwood.
