I cannot link against Boost libraries 1.35.0 built with CodeSourcery's
ARM/GNU toolchain, although the build is successful.
I built Boost with:
bjam --with-regex --with-serialization --with-thread stage
And tried to link to the test program from the 'Getting Started
(Unix)' guide I get:
$ arm-none-linux-gnueabi-g++ test-regex.cpp -I.
/tmp/ccVow1Eq.o: In function `boost::detail::atomic_decrement(int*)':
undefined reference to `__sync_fetch_and_add_4'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
With assistance on the boost-build list I've ascertained that the
problem is that GCC doesn't support __sync_fetch_and_add and the other
atomic built-ins on ARM.
An additional case for this may need to be added to
I don't know enough to patch boost for this, short-term or otherwise;
can anyone offer any advice?
