Subject: Re: problems with man2hlp


    I am a developer working with Gentoo Linux, and we been having
problems compiling 4.6.0_pre1 snapshots. This problem arises with
man2hlp, when trying to transform the man pages to help files this
program will totally fill up the build partition/dir on various machines
to which I have not been able to find a common link.  Any advice would
be appreciated as the snapshots seem to fix alot of problems and are
coming along nicely.

I have never seen this bug.  Maybe my yesterday's fix helps:

        * man2hlp.c: Warning fixes.  size_t can be unsigned.

Try man2hlp.c from CVS, and if it's still broken, I'll have a closer look.
You can get it from LXR:

After further testing, and doing what u suggested, the filling of entire partition is still happening.

../../src/man2hlp mc.1 ./xnc.hlp
This is where the compile does this on the boxes in question.
