cfengine 2.0.2: compile problem on HPUX [update 1]

Hello all,


I have successfully compiled, installed and tested with a minimal
cfagent.conf on 
- HPUX 10.20_32
- HPUX 11.00_32

using HP's Ansi-C compiler, lex, yacc. No GNU Tools were involved to
my knowledge. Please note that I did not install into /usr/local,
but /opt/{BerkeleyDB4.0,openssl-0.9.6c,cfengine-2.0.3}.

To get the HP Ansi-C compiler I have installed the bundle B3901BA.
If you are low on space, you need the filesets

When installing BerkeleyDB-4.0.14 from on my systems,
/opt/BerkeleyDB4.0/lib/ is installed with permissions
444. This causes cfengine's ./configure to fail:

    ./configure --prefix=/opt/cfengine-2.0.3 --with-openssl=/opt/openssl-0.9.6c 
    checking for BerkeleyDB location... /opt/BerkeleyDB.4.0
    checking Berkeley DB Version... configure: error: This release of cfengine 
requires BerkeleyDB 3.2 or later

then you find in config.log
    configure:3305: checking for BerkeleyDB location
    configure:3358: result: /opt/BerkeleyDB.4.0
    configure:3377: checking Berkeley DB Version
    configure:3401: cc -o conftest -Ae -I/opt/BerkeleyDB.4.0/include   -L/opt/d
    ce/lib -L/opt/BerkeleyDB.4.0/lib conftest.c -lm  -ldb >&5
    configure:3404: $? = 0
    configure:3406: ./conftest
    /usr/lib/ Call to mmap() failed - TEXT 
    /usr/lib/ Permission denied
    ./configure[3407]: 14322 Abort(coredump)
    configure:3409: $? = 134
    configure: program exited with status 134

changing the permissions on the shared lib to 555 fixes this.

openssl just takes a long time to compile, install, but seems
to work immediately (make test)

On HPUX 10.20_32:

the configure run fails first with "ANSI feature" error :-)

    configure:3377: checking Berkeley DB Version
    configure:3401: cc -o conftest -g -I/opt/BerkeleyDB.4.0/include   
     -L/opt/BerkeleyDB.4.0/lib conftest.c -lm  -ldb >&5
    + eval $CC -o conftest$ac_exeext $CFLAGS $CPPFLAGS $LDFLAGS 
conftest.$ac_ext $LI
    BS >&5
    + cc -o conftest -g -I/opt/BerkeleyDB.4.0/include -L/opt/dce/lib 
    DB.4.0/lib conftest.c -lm -ldb
    + 1>& 5
    cc: "configure", line 3390: error 1705: Function prototypes are an ANSI 
    configure:3404: $? = 1
    configure: program exited with status 1

adding CFLAGS="-Ae" to the configure line fixes that.

On both HPUX 10.20_32 and 11.00_32 

configure succeeds, make fails on

        cc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I. -I/opt/BerkeleyDB.4.0/include

/usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:
   Error (first referenced in /usr/lib/libPW.a(rename.o)) (data)
*** Error exit code 1


We did some searching on the Web. It seems that libPW.a expects
an integer "Error". So I just naively edited the following files:

    for F in globals.c cf.extern.h  cfenvgraph.c
    > do
    > echo "diff -e src/$F.dist src/$F"
    > diff -e src/$F.dist src/$F
    > echo "---"
    > done
    diff -e src/globals.c.dist src/globals.c
    /*ifdef hpux */
    int Error;
    /*endif */
    diff -e src/cf.extern.h.dist src/cf.extern.h
    /*ifdef hpux */
    extern int Error;
    /*endif */
    diff -e src/cfenvgraph.c.dist src/cfenvgraph.c
    int Error; /* needed by hpux */
This is a "brute force" attack, I'm sure there are more
elegant ways to handle this case.

After that make succeeds. I have no positive confirmation that
this is the way it should be. Nor have I any clues in which
cases/functions this variable is used. Thus I cannot conclude
that cfengine is working flawless. A test with a minimal
cfagent.conf file shows that cfagent is behaving as expected
so far. Maybe someone else can clarify this bit.

on HPUX 11.00_64, 11.11_32, 11.11_64 I'm still working.
I send out another update once I'm done.

We found some references that say
- use of libPW.a is deprecated in HPUX 10.30
- do link libc _before_ libPW
so it seems that libPW should completely go away some day.

I wish to thank my colleage Robert Karlsson, who greatly
helped researching this issue.
