Solaris 10 + Sun Studio 12 Pyrhon 2.4.4 64-bit build problem

P: n/a
I've been trying for days to build 64 bit python with Solaris 10 + Sun
Studio 12.

Can anyone helpl please.

This is how I tried to do build:

# ./configure --prefix=/opt/python2.4 --without-gcc --enable-shared
checking MACHDEP... sunos5
checking EXTRAPLATDIR...
checking for --without-gcc... yes
checking for --with-cxx=<compiler>... no
checking for c++... /opt/SUNWspro/bin/CC
checking for C++ compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C++ compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for gcc... cc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... no
checking whether cc accepts -g... yes
checking for cc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking how to run the C preprocessor... /opt/SUNWspro/bin/CC
configure: error: C preprocessor "/opt/SUNWspro/bin/CC" fails sanity
check
See `config.log' for more details.

(sorry for the long log file but I'm not sure which part are
important)
config.log:
This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by python configure 2.4, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.59. Invocation command line was

$ ./configure --prefix=/opt/python2.4 --without-gcc --enable-shared

P: n/a
Maybe this helps. Using ./configure --without-gcc .... in Python
2.5.1 on Solaris 10 gives a different message. That message indicates
that C++ compiler 'c++' will be used but the Studio C++ compiler on
Solaris is 'CC'.

Using ./configure --without-gcc --with-cxx-main=CC .... made that
message go away. Python did build after that and the tests are
running.

But it is a 32-bit binary, not 64-bit. Another ./configure option will
be needed to build that.

P: n/a
Building 64-bit Python is still elusive. I tried various ways to add -
xtarget=opteron -xarch-amd64 to the C/C++ flags but that still fails
to produce a 64-bit build. Changing the Makefile is not sufficient
since that causes compilation errors.

It looks like the ./configure command must run with those additional
flags. Passing the flags in environment variables defining CC and CXX
only works for CXX. The additional flags do not appear on the C
compiler command lines.

Here is one way to build a 64-bit Python binary on Solaris 10 using
SUN's compilers**. This is probably not the recommended procedure but
it does create a partial, expected result.

Here are the 4 steps I used:

1 - Run ./configure --without-gcc --with-cxx-main=CC --enable-64-
bit ....

2 - Edit the generated Makefile and change 3 lines

CC = cc -xtarget=opteron -xarch=amd64
CXX = CC -xtarget=opteron -xarch=amd64
MAINCC = CC -xtarget=opteron -xarch=amd64

The -xtarget and -xarch flags must be adjusted for UltraSparc.

3 - Edit python source file ./Include/pyport.h before line 728 (in
Python 2.5.1) as follows.

Add these 3 lines:

#ifndef __GNUC__ /* non-GNU C/C++, like SUN */
# undef LONG_BIT
#endif

such that LONG_BIT is #define'd next

#ifndef LONG_BIT
#define LONG_BIT (8 * SIZEOF_LONG)
#endif

before this error message can occur

#if LONG_BIT != 8 * SIZEOF_LONG
/* 04-Oct-2000 LONG_BIT is apparently (mis)defined as 64 on some
recent
* 32-bit platforms using gcc. We try to catch that here at
compile-time
* rather than waiting for integer multiplication to trigger bogus
* overflows.
*/
#error "LONG_BIT definition appears wrong for platform (bad gcc/
glibc config?)."
#endif

4 - Run make and check the resulting Python binary with file ./
python.

However, make test still fails and that will require further
investigation.

since that causes compilation errors.

It looks like the ./configure command must run with those additional
flags. Passing the flags in environment variables defining CC and CXX
only works for CXX. The additional flags do not appear on the C
compiler command lines.

Here is a better way to build Python on Solaris, both 32- and 64-
bit.

<http://ccnuma.anu.edu.au/~wpc/blog/programming/building-python.html>

since it builds both the binary and make test on my Ultra 20 machine.
In my case 26 tests pass, 1 failed, 44 are skipped and there are 6 u
expected skips. The latter are expected and due to missing packages,
like Tcl.

Use the instructions from this site and forget mine. But it may still
be necessary to patch the ./Include/pyport.h file as shown in my
previous message.

Correction: the number of tests which pass must be 276.

On final comment. For 64-bit usage, Python 2.5.1 is the better
choice.

More on that here <http://docs.python.org/whatsnew/pep-353.html>.
