creating a project from sample project

Ryan M. Lefever
I am trying to create a project in my home directory based off the
instructions in http://llvm.org/docs/Projects.html.  I have completed
step 4 requiring me to set the values in autoconf/configure.ac  In step
5, when I run AutoRegen.sh, I get the following error:

Can't find the LLVM autoconf/m4 directory. The project should be checked
out to projects directory

So, I assumed that I set AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR incorrectly in configure.ac.
  I tried setting it to an absolute path and a relative path but had no
luck.  Then I looked at AutoRegen.sh, and it seems to have a variable
called llvm_m4 that is hardcoded to either ../../../autoconf/m4 or
../../llvm/autoconf/m4.  If I hardcode in another option that allows
llvm_m4 to be hardcoded to the same value that I set AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR
to, then I am able to run AutoRegen.sh.  Am I doing something wrong?

Regards,
Ryan

Re: creating a project from sample project

Reid Spencer
It's complaining about the LLVM autoconf/m4 directory which contains the
m4 macros that are used in your project's configure.ac. By convention,
your project should be in the llvm/projects directory so that you have:

1. llvm/autoconf
2. llvm/projects/yourProj/autoconf

The AutoRegen.sh in #2 is looking for #1. By convention that should be
located at ../../../autoconf/m4.  AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR has nothing to do
with it, as that comes into play only when autoconf is run, not when
AutoRegen.sh is running.

Probably the only thing you're doing "wrong" is not placing your project
in the llvm/projects directory.  If you need to have your project
elsewhere, then what you did (change llvm_m4) is correct.  But, please
be aware, the directory you want is *not* your project's autoconf
directory, but LLVM's autoconf directory.

Reid.

Re: creating a project from sample project

Ryan M. Lefever
Thank you for the response.  I guess the only thing that is confusing is
that the LLVM documentation, at http://llvm.org/docs/Projects.html under
the "Create a Project from the Sample Project" heading, indicates that
(1) you can place your project *anywhere* you want, and (2) that you are
supposed to use the AutoRegen.sh script as is.  However, that seems not
to be the case.

The reason my project is not in the LLVM projects directory is because
it is in a CVS directory as part of a different project I am working on.

Again thanks for the help.

Ryan

Re: creating a project from sample project

Reid Spencer
Ryan,

Rather than fix the documentation to match reality, I decided to fix
reality to match the documentation. I have just committed (CVS head)
changes to the sample project's AutoRegen.sh script that will prompt the
user for the path to the LLVM source root and the LLVM object root, if
it can't automatically determine the location (because your project is
not located in the llvm/projects directory).  Once entered, the value is
retained and used throughout so you never need to specify it again.
Hopefully, this will help with your circumstances.

Please try it out and let me know if that solution works or if you have
any further issues.

Reid.

Re: creating a project from sample project

Ryan M. Lefever
Reid,

Thanks for the help.  I am trying out the fixes you checked into CVS.  I
seem to be getting some errors running AutoRegen.sh.  I am a bit
inexperienced with autoconf and m4.  The errors I'm getting are below.
Do you know what the problem is?  I am using machines running FC3.  The
autoconf version is 2.59, the aclocal version is 1.9.2, and the m4
version is 1.4.1.

/usr/share/aclocal/gob2.m4:7: warning: underquoted definition of GOB2_HOOK
   run info '(automake)Extending aclocal'
   or see http://sources.redhat.com/automake/automake.html#Extending-aclocal
Regenerating configure with autoconf 2.5x
configure.ac:25: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_CONFIG_MAKEFILE
       If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
       See the Autoconf documentation.
autoconf failed

Regards,
Ryan

Re: creating a project from sample project

Reid Spencer
Hi Ryan,

The output from autoconf doesn't look familiar (but then, does it
ever?).

Note that it thinks that AC_CONFIG_MAKEFILE isn't defined which is
likely if you didn't get the LLVM_SRC_ROOT correct.  Here's the only
things I can think of:

1. You also need to cvs update llvm/autoconf/m4 to get the new
definition of LLVM_CONFIG_PROJECT.

2. You typed in the LLVM source root incorrectly when prompted. for it.

Hopefully one of those two things is the case because it is easily
rectified. If not, please send the entire transcript of running with
AutoRegen.sh, the AutoRegen.sh script you're using, and the paths you're
attempting to set up (i.e. where is LLVM and where is your project?)

Thanks,

Reid.

Re: creating a project from sample project

Ryan M. Lefever
Reid,

Thank you for all your help.  I think that I have AutoRegen.sh working
now.  (I still get the warning about GOB2_HOOK, but I'm assuming that's
not a problem.)

I'll explain the scenario that led to the problem.  I copied the sample
project to ~/work/myproject/src/sample.  Then I renamed it to
~/work/myproject/src/llvm, indicating that this was the llvm part of my
project.  So the problem was that when AutoRegen.sh applied ../../llvm
from ~/work/myproject/src/llvm/autoconf, it ended up pointing back to my
copy of the sample project rather than the llvm source; and I was never
asked for the location of the llvm source.  To fix the problem I just
renamed ~/work/myproject/src/llvm to something else.

In order to use the fix that you've checked in for the sample project,
do I need to use the rest of the llvm src that is checked into cvs, or
can I just copy the new sample project from cvs and use it with llvm 1.6?

Thanks,
Ryan

Re: creating a project from sample project

Reid Spencer
Hi Ryan,

Unfortunately, you'll need to use CVS. I don't think the changes to
LLVM's autoconf/m4 directory made it into release 1.7.  The changes in
AutoRegen.sh and configure.ac for the sample project are dependent on a
minor change in llvm/autoconf/m4/config_project.m4.  If you need to use
1.6 or 1.7, just get that file from CVS and replace it in your 1.6 or
1.7 release sources. That should allow the AutoRegen.sh for your project
to find what it needs and work correctly.

Reid.
