Mike, thank you for upgrading XEmacs's JDE package. With a
21.5 executable, I can again build all the XEmacs packages. I have
observed a problem, however. If I try to build all the XEmacs
packages using an XEmacs which has builtin gmp support (i.e. one
configured --with-bignum=gmp), the "make bytecompile" step for the
semantic package will chew up memory until either I or the linux
kernel kills the XEmacs process. Here's the output from today's build
at work (which I killed by hand):
I echo the thanks to Mike. That's a big pile of work that we've needed for
some time. I'm glad you've stepped up to the plate to do it.
I don't know what is going on off-hand. If there is code somewhere that
relies on integer overflow to work correctly, we need to find and fix it.
Is there any chance that you could get a C backtrace from an XEmacs that is
busy chewing up memory? I probably won't have time to try reproducing this
myself until early next week.
