Description
Trying to build the maxima-5.20.1.spkg fails on Cygwin. The error is
;;; Loading "/home/wstein/build/sage-4.3.3.alpha0/spkg/build/maxima-5.20.1/src/src/binary-ecl/init-cl.fas" ; - Providing system maxima An error occurred during initialization: C::BUILDER does not accept a file "binary-ecl/init-cl.fas" of kind :FASL.

Juan-Jose had the following suggestion:
It is no wonder Maxima does not build in Cygwin. Someone had introduced, who knows why, different build commands for that platform in maxima.system. The offending function looks as follows (maxima/src/maxima.system) #+ecl (defun build-maxima-lib () (labels ((list-all-objects (module) (if (eql (mk::component-type module) :file) (list (mk::component-full-pathname module :binary)) (apply #'append (mapcar #'list-all-objects (mk::component-components module)))))) (let* ((files (list-all-objects (mk:find-system 'maxima)))) #+msvc (progn (c::build-static-library "binary-ecl/maxima-lib" :lisp-files (print files)) (let ((c::*ld-format* (concatenate 'string c::*ld-format* " /LIBPATH:binary-ecl"))) (c::build-fasl "binary-ecl/maxima" :lisp-files '(maxima-lib)))) #+cygwin (c::build-fasl "binary-ecl/maxima" :lisp-files files) #-(or cygwin msvc) (let ((obj (mapcar #'(lambda (p) ;; Convert dir/foo.fas to dir/foo.o (make-pathname :type "o" :defaults p)) files))) [.... ] It is immediately obvious that the code for cygwin is too short to do anything useful. A possible fix is to remove the line #+cygwin and the following line and change #-(or cygwin msvc) to #-msvc However I can not guarantee that there are no other problems left. Please note that this is not directly related to ECL. Juanjo
I tried this with the following new spkg:
http://wstein.org/home/wstein/ports/cygwin/maxima-5.20.1.p1.spkg
and it now fails as follows:

The failure happens during the "make" step.

I tried typing the above gcc line in directly and it seems to work fine: sage subshell$ gcc "-I/home/wstein/build/sage-4.3.3.alpha0/local/include/" -I/home/wstein/build/sage-4.3.3.alpha0/local/include -O2 -g -Wall -Dcygwin -O -w -c "/cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/TEMP/ECLINIT5NW89S.c" -o "/cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/TEMP/ECLINIT5NW89S.o" /home/wstein/build/sage-4.3.3.alpha0 sage subshell$ ls -lh /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/TEMP/ECLINIT5NW89S.o -rw-r--r--+ 1 wstein None 15K 2010-02-20 15:29 /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/TEMP/ECLINIT5NW89S.o /home/wstein/build/sage-4.3.3.alpha0 Then I typed "make" again, and *amazingly*, Maxima builds. That was a surprise. sage subshell$ binary-ecl/maxima.exe ;;; Loading #P"/home/wstein/build/sage-4.3.3.alpha0/local/lib/ecl/DEFSYSTEM.fas" ;;; Loading #P"/home/wstein/build/sage-4.3.3.alpha0/local/lib/ecl/cmp.fas" ;;; Loading #P"/home/wstein/build/sage-4.3.3.alpha0/local/lib/ecl/sysfun.lsp" Maxima 5.20.1 http://maxima.sourceforge.net using Lisp ECL 10.2.1 Distributed under the GNU Public License. See the file COPYING. Dedicated to the memory of William Schelter. The function bug_report() provides bug reporting information.

I'm just curious if this happens for other people too.

I was able to get Maxima to build in Cygwin with ECL 10.3.1 and the spkg at http://sage.math.washington.edu/home/mhansen/cygwin_port/maxima-5.20.1.p0.spkg . Everything builds correctly except building maxima as a library at the end:
cd src echo "building Maxima as an ecl library" ecl -eval "(require 'asdf)" -eval '(load "maxima-build.lisp")' -eval '(asdf:make-build :maxima :type :fasl)' -eval "(quit)" ECLLIB=`ecl -eval "(princ (SI:GET-LIBRARY-PATHNAME))" -eval "(quit)"` echo echo "installing Maxima library as $ECLLIB/maxima.fas" cp maxima.fasb $ECLLIB/maxima.fas cd ..
All of the building commands run correctly, but there is no "maxima.fasb" file produced.

- Milestone changed from sage-4.7.1 to sage-duplicate/invalid/wontfix
- Reviewers set to Karl-Dieter Crisman, Mike Hansen
- Status changed from new to needs_review
Although Maxima continue to not build consistently on Cygwin, neither on XP nor Win7, this bug is now vague and old enough that we should go to the more current tickets mentioned in the previous comment, which have information relevant to more current spkgs. In addition, it appears there was a fix of some kind which is now invalid due to other reasons, so this is really just too confusing now.
To release manager: please close this ticket.
