bug#17835: Emacs 24.3 not compiling on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5

Hi Glenn,

In my PATH (/import/vne/bin) I pointed to a 32-bit 'ld' version, but was compiling on a 64-bit REHL5 machine. After removing /import/vne/bin from PATH compilation went fine. Thanks for your quick response. You can close this bug.

Kind regards,

PS: Thanks Uli

Hi Axel,


/import/vne (RHEL5 based release) is a 32bit recompile PLUS extensions and optional patches. Sharing /usr/lib except the most basic libraries would defeat the purpose of vne. Both library locations need to stay separate.

The name /import/vnetest has historical reasons btw. .

And yes, the /import/vne tree is 32bit *only* (must still support 32bit boxes). Don’t mix things up when you compile things :D


Make sure you determine exactly which executable get called. Never rely on the dreaded PATH variable in a Makefile … it will come back and bite you in the rear.

Like below: you called the wrong ld binary (32bit from vne tree) when you really should have called the local 64bit version.

In my opinion it is best to declare variables for binaries and libraries with their full path.

IF you want a “local” compilation, it is a good idea to remove /import/vne/bin from the PATH variable in the running shell (plus “hash -r” in bash or “rehash” in tcsh) before you run ./configure ….

Also make sure your LD_LIBRARY_PATH is cleared.


Hope this helps a bit,

Hi Uli,


See below for Emacs 24.3 bug report to FSF. BTW: could you give a short explanation for /import/vnetest/. Why is this not the standard /usr/lib/ location? Is it because you want to avoid duplicating binary files to each Linux server?


Kind regards,

BTW, 24.3 builds fine for me on RHEL 5.10 x86_64.

I don't know what's going on with things like

  /import/vne/bin/ld: warning: i386:x86-64 architecture of input file
  `/usr/lib64/crt1.o' is incompatible with i386 output

in your build. You seem to have an entire separate tree of stuff in
