Last change on this file since 28946 was 28946, checked in by ak19, 7 years ago

Moving libiconv-1.11.tar.gz to gs-libiconv-1.11.tar.gz since we've incorporated a custom change to the original libiconv-1.11 version of the package that can be downloaded from the web. Updated the configure file to reflect this and the README in common-src/packages/iconv too. Tested compiling on Lion and it all still works.

21. To compile this package using the Android NDK, the following auto-config
3files needed to be replaced with newer versions that included the
4'android' architecture as one of the valid host targets:
5
6 libiconv-1.13.1/build-aux/config.sub
7 libiconv-1.13.1/build-aux/config.guess
8 libiconv-1.13.1/libcharset/build-aux/config.guess
9 libiconv-1.13.1/libcharset/build-aux/config.sub
10
11This has been done (using the 'config.sub' and 'config.guess' files
12from the 'gnome-lib/android-extra' folder in the gs2-extensions area)
13and the files to libiconv tarred up once more.

192. Sam had included libiconv-1.11 specifically for mac machines. Linux machines use libiconv-1.13.1. See http://trac.greenstone.org/changeset/23714 and common-src/packages/configure

21However, around late February 2014, GS2 stopped compiling on the Mac Lion and nightly binaries failed to generate, since libiconv-1.11 failed to compile successfully on there. Dr Bainbridge found that libiconv-1.14 would compile and that it featured a change in aliases.h in that place that he suspected to have harboured the error in 1.11. The change was incorporated into libiconv-1.11 and this now compiles on Lion again while still continuing to compile on Mac Leopard. As a consequence of us making this change, the libiconv-1.11.tar.gz was recommitted to SVN with the gs- prefix to indicate we changed it. The new name is gs-libiconv-1.11.tar.gz, but it extracts as before as the folder libiconv-1.11
