tcl header missing

  • 2016-10-19:2pm
    Hi was installing Qt via MSYS2 mingww64, and faced by a strange error.

    did ./build-all x86_64 --qt-version-git, when arriiving at the tcl part, download unpack patch copy source built find, but when installing received fatal error

    Qt-build\work\build-x86_64\tcl8.6.1\pkgs\tdbcmysql1.0.0\generic\tdbcmysql.c:22:18: fatal error: tdbc.h: No such file or directory
    also happened to tdbcodbc.c and tdbcpostgres.c,

    Then had to do
    pacman -S mingw-w64-i686-tcl mingw-w64-i686-tcllib mingw-w64-i686-tclvfs-cvs mingw-w64-i686-tclx mingw-w64-x86_64-tcl mingw-w64-x86_64-tcllib mingw-w64-x86_64-tclvfs-cvs mingw-w64-x86_64-tclx.
    Then error went away
    Which was the actual one available I am unsure, I think this is missing in the documentation, just thought would get someone's head up when they also face the same problem.

    Interestingly there was also problem building libxslt,
    make[3]: Entering directory '/QtSDK/Qt-build/work/build-x86_64/libxslt-1.1.28/tests/plugins'
    CC xmlsoft_org_xslt_testplugin_la-testplugin.lo
    libtool: error: can't build x86_64-w64-mingw32 shared library unless -no-undefined is specified
    make[3]: *** [Makefile:350:] Error 1

    has to manually go into Makefile and manually add the "-no-undefined" in line 350

    Hi people please help now, real stuck,
    ./buildall script run to the dmake part, failed to download as dmake project seemed to really have moved

    from the download log

    I tried downloading from filewatcher another dmake-4.12.2.tar.bz2, and put in the src location, but it simply removed it and repeated the download and failed.....
    -> dmake
    ---> Delete corrupted download... done
    ---> download dmake-4.12.2...error 8!
    smarty pants.

    I tried commenting out dmake in the file, but it seems that perl actually required dmake, so it cannot be taken out.
    Is there anyway I can remove the file corruption check from the buildall script? Or is this simply some error of the git they have to update?

    tried grep -r dmake .

    found that download location is governed by ./scenario/
    --file content

    changed the line to trick it to download from somewhere else
