2.1.33 compile failure on osf 5.0

From: Phil Cummins
Subject: 2.1.33 compile failure on osf 5.0
Date: Tue, 3 Apr 2001 16:36:11 +0900


  I am trying to compile octave-2.1.33 on osf 5.0. We have 
Compaq's fortran compiler but not there c++ compiler, so I
have installed gcc-2.95.3. I also installed GNU make-3.79.1,
gnuplot-3.8b, and texinfo-4.0. 
  Perhaps I should point out that I installed gcc for the
purpose of compiling octave, so I'm not sure that there isn't
a problem with the g++ install. Texinfo compiles and links
OK, so I think gcc works.

'uname -a' reports:
   OSF1 V5.0 1094 alpha

'./configure' reports (at the end):
Octave is now configured for alphaev6-dec-osf5.0

  Source directory:     .
  Installation prefix:  /usr/local
  C compiler:           gcc  -mieee-with-inexact -g -O2 -Wall
  C++ compiler:         c++  -mieee-with-inexact -fno-rtti -fno-exceptions
-fno-implicit-templates -g -O2 -Wall
  Fortran compiler:     f77 -fpe1 -O
  Fortran libraries:     -lUfor -lfor -lFutil -lm -lots -lm_c32 -lm
  Use GNU readline:     true
  Default pager:        more
  gnuplot:              gnuplot

  Do internal array bounds checking:       false
  Build static libraries:                  true
  Build shared libraries:                  false
  Minimal kernel option:                   false
  Dynamic Linking (dlopen/dlsym):          true
  Dynamic Linking (shl_load/shl_findsym):  false
  Include support for GNU readline:        true

'make' first fails with:

   gcc xstat.c -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I./.. -g -O2 -c -o
   xstat.c:41: macro `lstat' used without args
   make[2]: *** [xstat.lo] Error 1

I found that if I comment out line 41 in xstat.c:
    /*extern int lstat ();*/
the make gets through kpathsea, and compilation proceeds for 
quite some time, but finally fails with:

c++  -I. -I../.. -I../../liboctave -I../../src -I../../libcruft/misc 
-I../../glob -I../../glob -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -mieee-with-inexact -fno-rtti
-fno-exceptions -fno-implicit-templates -g -O2 -Wall -L../..    -g -o
munge-texi munge-texi.o Map-s.o
_GLOBAL_$F$__default_terminate: multiply defined
__register_frame_info_table: multiply defined
__deregister_frame_info: multiply defined
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Does anyone have any suggestions that might resolve this
problem? Many thanks.
