Hi Dirk,

The above will only occur if the configure script cannot determine the endianness of the system.
Somewhere amongst the output of configure it should say something like:

    checking whether we can use unboxed 64-bit integers... yes
    checking whether architecture is big-endian... no
    checking whether architecture is little-endian... yes
    checking whether we can use files as locks... yes

Do both the endianness checks return "no" on your system? If so, could you please check in config.log
and see why those checks are failing? (Or post that file into Mantis and we'll take a look.)

BTW, I think the issue here is that Xcode 12 sets -Werror=implicit-function-declaration and the configure
script contains several tests (including the ones for testing endianness) that do implicitly declare functions.

Hi Julien,

both endianness checks return "no":
  checking whether we can use unboxed 64-bit integers... yes
  checking whether architecture is big-endian... no
  checking whether architecture is little-endian... no
  checking whether we can use files as locks... yes

config.log (attached) states:
configure:9044: checking whether architecture is big-endian
configure:9071: gcc -o conftest -O -Iruntime -Iruntime/machdeps -Itrace conftest.c >&5
conftest.c:146:21: error: implicitly declaring library function 'exit' with type 'void (int) __attribute__((noreturn))' [-Werror,-Wimplicit-function-declaration]
                    exit(0);
                    ^
conftest.c:146:21: note: include the header <stdlib.h> or explicitly provide a declaration for 'exit'
1 error generated.
configure:9071: $? = 1
configure: program exited with status 1

Julien has already committed a diff to #include stdlib.h.
It should show up in the next ROTD, or you could check it out
of github, and try it out.

Hi Dirk,

Thanks for that. The issue is the changed settings for Xcode 12; commit 00d5ede should fix the
problem. (It will be included in the next rotd.)

Hi Julien,
Hi Zoltan,

Thank you for fixing this.
