Trouble compiling C++ test program in ffpbuildenv for ffp 0.5

Hello, in my DNS-323 as fax server project, I'm getting stuck configuring HylaFAX+. Part of the configure script is a simple C++ test program. The test program is below:

Code:

#include <iostream>
int main(){ std::cout << "Hello World!" << std::endl; return 0;}

If I copy that source into a new file and run g++ on it, it compiles and runs with no problem. However, when I run ./configure via:

Code:

./Make.sh hylafax

I get the following error in config.log

Code:

/ffp/bin/g++        -D__ANSI_CPP__ -I. -I. -I. -I.//mnt/HD_a2/svn/ffpbuildenv/work/hylafax-5.5.5/hylafax-5.5.5/util  /ffp/include -g -O  t.c++
/ffp/include: file not recognized: Is a directory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [t] Error 1

For some reason, it thinks /ffp/include is the file to be compiled (maybe?) and not part of the include path. I'm not sure if the double //mnt portion is part of the problem or not. Does anyone have enough knowledge of the ffpbuildenv to know where this is going wrong?

Don't know what that 'Make.sh' does. But Hylafax+ has an abnormal configure. Normally you do something like

Code:

./configure --prefix=/ffp

for this package you have to edit the configure script, to set the prefix. (exchange all /usr/local/ by /ffp/).

I installed libjpeg, libpng and zlib from fonz, repository, compiled a libtiff myself. The package built. It expects a 'sendmail'. I compiled ssmtp. It also expects a 'gs'. That's a dragon. I hope you don't need it in your setup. I guess it's needed to render pages from text. (A fax is a bitmap, so to fax a document it has to be 'printed')

You can find it here. (I also added minicom).

According to the documentation, you'll have to run

Code:

sh /ffp/sbin/faxsetup

after installing the package.

Wow, thank you so much for doing all of that. I can't tell you how grateful I am for all the time you put into this for me. I now have all the software I need to get this working. It does require gs (ghostscript) to work, and it was definitely a dragon smile, but I was finally able to get it to compile as an ffp 0.5 package. I haven't done much testing with it yet, but the binaries seem to run fine.

I'm still trying to test the whole setup, but I will follow up with that on our other thread.

Btw, just for reference, I finally discovered the problem I was having had nothing to do with the ffpbuildenv but was an issue with my configure parameters. I was passing "--with-TIFFINC=/ffp/include" to ./configure based on my understanding of the docs. In reality, TIFFINC wasn't necessary, and is meant to be command line parameters anyway (not a path).
