#926 closed defect (fixed)

binutils fails to build due to 'colophon' and 'cygnus'

Reported by: Andrew Bradford Owned by: Andrew Bradford
Priority: major Milestone: CLFS Embedded 1.0.0
Component: BOOK Version: CLFS Embedded GIT
Keywords: Cc:


../../../binutils-2.23.2/bfd/doc/bfd.texinfo:325: unknown command `colophon'
../../../binutils-2.23.2/bfd/doc/bfd.texinfo:336: unknown command `cygnus'

This has been fixed as of binutils-2.23.51 and newer in snapshots but is not yet "released." Once this fix makes it into a real release, the book version of binutils needs to be updated.

Tested that it is fixed definitely as of 2.23.52 snapshot.

LFS has possibly a fix for this on older binutils in their section 5.4 (

 Fix a couple of syntax errors that prevent the documentation from building with Texinfo-5.1:

sed -i -e 's/@colophon/@@colophon/' \
       -e 's/' bfd/doc/bfd.texinfo
