Re: devhelp build fails

Hi Kjell,
Agree it's strange. I built cluttermm using jhbuild, so it's processed the other 38 or so libraries with no problem. On cluttermm it fails. The line in cluttermm/build/ that fails is

    $(AM_V_GEN)$(XSLTPROC) $(dh_xsl_params) -o $@ $(tagfile_to_devhelp2) $<

and the compile error is

/usr/bin/xsltproc --stringparam book_title 'cluttermm Reference Manual' --stringparam book_name 'cluttermm-1.0' --stringparam book_base html -o reference/cluttermm-1.0.devhelp2 "/opt/gnome/share/mm-common/doctool/tagfile-to-devhelp2.xsl" reference/cluttermm-1.0.tag /usr/bin/xsltproc: relocation error: /usr/bin/xsltproc: symbol xsltMaxVars, version LIBXML2_1.0.24 not defined in file with link time reference
make[1]: *** [reference/cluttermm-1.0.devhelp2] Error 127

I can't find any information on symbol xsltMaxVars, and can't find where it's referenced anywhere. I did update my (Debian Sid) system just prior to running jhbuild, so I'm wondering if xsltproc has changed it's API; as you note, that's a bit odd if it went through the gtkmm docs without a problem. The other option is that cluttermm has an outdated call somewhere ( which is much more likely) but I've no idea where to look.

Could you be more specific? Which documentation fails to build? Gtkmm's reference documentation? Any other package's ref docs? gtkmm-documentation (the gtkmm tutorial)? Which command fails (including all command parameters)?

If the error is in build/, it's strange that only one package is affected. That file is used in many *mm packages. It's copied from mm-common by mm-common-prepare in

I have no problems building the documentation on my Ubuntu 13.10 system. When I checked the /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ file, the nm command says "no symbols". I don't know what xsltproc expects to find in that file.

I've just run into a build failure that I don't understand. It's occurring on building documentation; I'm running Debian Sid and have just upgraded; the devhelp build is failing, with the following compile error: #/usr/bin/xsltproc: relocation error: /usr/bin/xsltproc: symbol xsltMaxVars, version LIBXML2_1.0.24 not defined in file with link time reference.

I've reinstalled the xslt packages to make sure they're up to date.

I can get around it by simply omitting the devhelp file building, but that doesn't fix the underlying problem. I suspect there's something very out of date in the /build/doc-reference makefile, as all the other packages built without this error. Any suggestions where I should go looking?
