I am trying to build firefox 54 on my PowerMac G5. It marked as stable in packages.gentoo.org however it is failing to build. Here is tail end of the build log. Any help to figure out what is wrong is appreciated

Code:

You enabled debug use flag (see here)?

Moved from Portage & Programming to Gentoo on PPC where it has a better visibility.

Thanks, but no success..
Compilation took more to complete, like 4h or more didn't take notice, but failed with same error, trying +custom-optimiztion, as described in https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1064932.html?sid=c8b38500db927f697643a35c7d8dcd06

Still same output.
neither -debug or +custom-optimization worked.

My working USE-flag combination for ppc64, built with gcc-7.3.0:
Code:
www-client/firefox -custom-cflags custom-optimization system-icu system-harfbuzz system-jpeg system-libevent system-libvpx system-sqlite


With gcc-6.4.0 I needed to build with CFLAGS="-O1". Which is generally not a bad idea when building big projects with only 2 cores. ;)

Could you explain your reasoning on this? Reducing the optimization level will reduce the work done by the compiler, which may help during the build, but it comes at the price of building less optimized code, which may run less well. You would probably be better served by reducing the load in other ways, such as reducing MAKEOPTS.

@Hu:

Yes that's the point, that using -O1 will reduce the work done by the compiler, which shortens build time greatly on a machine from 2005. ;) I am aware that the code is less optimized as a result. But to my experience FF needs to be rebuilt not too rarely (when some of its' deps change), which takes rather long on a G4/G5. If I had a Quad-G5 or some POWER6-9 machine, I would of course prefer -O2. Here's some nice comparison of the -O flags and some benchmarks: https://phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=GCC-6.1-Compiler-Optimizations

Changing MAKEOPTS to -j2 or -j1 will of course reduce the load but increase build time. I guess running -j3 on this dual core machine is a good choice, and greater values may even increase build time.
