#11564: ZLIB library test failing on Solaris
 Reporter: lcarreon@… | Type: Bugs
   Status: new | Milestone: To Be Determined
Component: Building Boost | Version: Boost 1.59.0
 Severity: Problem | Keywords:
 I'm building Boost 1.59.0 on a Solaris 11 x86_64 virtual machine. I
 am sure the ZLIB and BZIP2 library packages are installed. These are
 the commands I use to build:

 ./bootstrap.sh --prefix=/export/home/dev00/boost_1_59_0 --with-toolset=sun
 ./b2 -sICU_PATH=/opt/icu4c-55.1 link=shared runtime-link=shared address-
 model=64 variant=release cxxflags="-std=c++11" linkflags="-std=c++11"
 install 2>&1 | tee ../libsol11.log

 When the configuration stage finishes, the build indicates it has not
 detected the ZLIB library. I checked the bin.v2/config.log file and
 it has this error message:

 "bin.v2/standalone/ac/zlib.h.cpp", line 1: Error: There is extra text on
 this line.
 Error: Cannot continue processing because of prior errors.

 I tried building the indicated file myself and it does generate the
 above error message. I checked the file and discovered that the cause
 of the error is a missing newline terminator.

 I have looked at the code generating the above file but I could not
 figure out how to make it add the newline character thus I decided to
 log this ticket. The file generating the CPP file above is
 tools/build/test/zlib.py. I'm assuming this is a Python file which
 I'm not familiar with.
