HOWTO build flex (libfl) for cris-axis crisv32-axis

Since some of the EPICS extensions and modules rely on libfl flex and the standard distribution of AXIS SDK doesn't contain the libfl.a this has to be added:
Prerequisites
  • Axis SDK
  • cross compiler

Build & Installation

  1. set some helper variables:
    export SRC_DIR=<Source Directory>
    export DOWNLOAD_DIR=<Download Directory>
    # provided cross compiler and SDK are installed here export ETRAX_DIR=<ETRAX Tools Directory>
  2. download sources from http://sourceforge.net/projects/flex/ (version 2.5.35) via direct link to $DOWNLOAD_DIR
    mkdir -p ${DOWNLOAD_DIR:?undefined} &&
    wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/flex/flex-2.5.35.tar.bz2?download
  3. unpack to $SRC_DIR
    mkdir -p ${SRC_DIR:?undefined} &&
    cd SRC_DIR &&
    tar -jxvf flex-2.5.35.tar.bz
  4. Source cris-axis-setup.sh ,defining environment variables, e.g. AXIS_TOP_DIR, and extending PATH, needs ETRAX_DIR to be defined. or just take its main code:
    oldpwd=$OLDPWD
    base=$(pwd)
    cd ${ETRAX_DIR:?undefined)/SDK && cd $(ls --color=never -t -1 -d devbo* | head -n 1) && . ./init_env
    cd $base
    cd ${ETRAX_DIR:?undefined)/ETRAX/compiler && . ./setup.sh
    cd $oldpwd
    cd $base
    unset scriptname base oldpwd epicsDir
  5. Change to source directory $SRC_DIR
    cd ${SRC_DIR:?undefined}
  6. Since configure automatically sets for cross-compilers 'ac_cv_func_malloc_0_nonnull' and 'ac_cv_func_realloc_0_nonnull' to 'no', (since it cannot check it) those have to be configured by hand:
    1. cris-axis
      1. export myTARGET=cris-axis-linux-gnu
      2. make clean
      3. ./configure --prefix=${AXIS_TOP_DIR:?undefined}/target/${myTARGET:?defined}/usr --host=${myTARGET} --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu ac_cv_func_realloc_0_nonnull=yes ac_cv_func_malloc_0_nonnull=yes
      4. make
      5. make install
    2. crisv32-axis
      1. export myTARGET=crisv32-axis-linux-gnu
      2. make clean
      3. ./configure --prefix=${AXIS_TOP_DIR:?undefined}/target/${myTARGET:?defined}/usr --host=${myTARGET} --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu ac_cv_func_realloc_0_nonnull=yes ac_cv_func_malloc_0_nonnull=yes
      4. make
      5. make install

    Compact
      export SRC_DIR=<Source Directory>
      export DOWNLOAD_DIR=<Download Directory>
      # provided cross compiler and SDK are installed here
      export ETRAX_DIR=<ETRAX Tools Directory>

      mkdir -p ${DOWNLOAD_DIR:?undefined} &&
      wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/flex/flex-2.5.35.tar.bz2?download

      mkdir -p ${SRC_DIR:?undefined} &&
      cd SRC_DIR &&
      tar -jxvf flex-2.5.35.tar.bz

      oldpwd=$OLDPWD
      base=$(pwd)
      cd ${ETRAX_DIR:?undefined)/SDK && cd $(ls --color=never -t -1 -d devbo* | head -n 1) && . ./init_env
      cd $base
      cd ${ETRAX_DIR:?undefined)/ETRAX/compiler && . ./setup.sh
      cd $oldpwd
      cd $base
      unset scriptname base oldpwd epicsDir

      # crisv-axis
      export myTARGET=cris-axis-linux-gnu
      cd ${SRC_DIR:?undefined} &&
      make clean
      ./configure --prefix=${AXIS_TOP_DIR:?undefined}/target/${myTARGET:?defined}/usr --host=${myTARGET} --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu ac_cv_func_realloc_0_nonnull=yes ac_cv_func_malloc_0_nonnull=yes &&
      make && make install

      # crisv32-axis
      export myTARGET=crisv32-axis-linux-gnu
      cd ${SRC_DIR:?undefined} &&
      make clean
      ./configure --prefix=${AXIS_TOP_DIR:?undefined}/target/${myTARGET:?defined}/usr --host=${myTARGET} --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu ac_cv_func_realloc_0_nonnull=yes ac_cv_func_malloc_0_nonnull=yes &&
      make && make install
