Building Qt branch 4.7 || 4.8 from git for qml/3d: not found

  • hi
    $ ./configure -opengl -developer-build
    $ make


    @cd src/script/ && make -f Makefile
    /home/.../qt/bin/qmake-qt4 -spec ../../mkspecs/freebsd-g++ -o Makefile
    *** Error code 2
    g++ -c...
    Cannot find file:
    *** Error code 2
    g++: ../3rdparty/javascriptcore/JavaScriptCore/pcre/pcre_compile.cpp: No such file or directory
    g++: No input file specified
    *** Error code 1
    got no idea where this error comes from, as is there and Makefile looks ok, compared to for ex. svg Makefile

    qmake is bootstraped version.

    a qt>4.7 development-build is required to compile qtquick-3d on FreeBSD-8.2-RELEASE amd64

    i know *bsd support got no high priority, any suggestions to get qml/3d still working?

  • changing relative path in src/script/Makefile solves this error, but gets more "file not found" from g++ in javascriptcore

    how could it be that make changes current path as there is no big difference in src/script/Makefile compared to for ex. src/svg/Makefile apart from files to load

    looks more like error comes from javascriptcore

  • I'll post the solution, should anyone ever fall into this problem. The same issue exists when building QtWebKit.

    FreeBSD make(1) silently auto-descends into obj/ subdirectories, and there is one in src/script, that's why relative paths don't work from there. Setting MAKEOBJDIR=. fixes the issue (that's what we use in the official FreeBSD port).
