when compiling kaffe 0.9.2 for NEXTSTEP, the compiler barfs about
jit/funcs.c (about the trampoline code, to be more exact). The problem
seems to be with the assembler not being able to parse the following
compiler output. Perhaps a kind soul with more intimate knowledge
about Intel assembler could tell me what this means and how I could
work around the problem ?
This is a fragment from funcs.s, the erronous lines are marked with "<<<<":
addl $_GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_+[.-i386_dft1],%ebx <<<<
call _fixupTrampoline at PLT <<<<
The assembler tells me:
/usr/tmp/cc410051-003372.s:12107:invalid character '[' in first operand
/usr/tmp/cc410051-003372.s:12108:invalid character '@' in first operand
The compiler is gcc-126.96.36.199, the assembler is GNU as 1.38. It's
impossible to install a more recent gas, since it won't compile for
Nextstep, so I'd love to see a replacement for the code above ;-) that
I could work into funcs.s.
Many thanks in advance!
