Description Larry Rosenbaum 2007-04-25 07:09:27 UTC
On Solaris 8, SA v3.2.0-rc2, after running sa-compile and uncommenting the
Rule2XSBody plugin, I got the following error:

# spamassassin --lint
ld.so.1: /usr/local/bin/spamassassin: fatal: relocation error: file
body_0/body_0.so: symbol
Mail_SpamAssassin_CompiledRegexps_body_0_scan17: referenced symbol not found

The only suspicious part of the sa-compile output was the following:

Wide character in print at /usr/local/bin/sa-compile line 372, <$fh> line 6480.

It doesn't seem to be a problem finding the dynamic libraries:

# ldd /var/lib/spamassassin/compiled/3.002000/auto/Mail/
        libc.so.1 =>     /usr/lib/libc.so.1
        libdl.so.1 =>    /usr/lib/libdl.so.1

re2c segfaults on scanner17.re

More information: re2c segfaults on scanner17.re, which causes scanner17.c to
be empty, which would explain why the symbol is not found.  Any ideas as to why
it segfaults?
Comment 5 Justin Mason 2007-04-25 10:35:25 UTC
that sounds like a bug in re2c, I'm afraid.  are you using the latest version?
Comment 6 Larry Rosenbaum 2007-04-26 07:03:24 UTC
I was running re2c v0.11.0 from sunfreeware.  I replaced it with v0.11.3 built 
from source and now it works correctly (although it took 4-1/2 hours to 

I guess you can close the bug...
Comment 7 Justin Mason 2007-04-26 07:06:15 UTC
ok, cool.  if anyone else runs into it, hopefully they'll search the BZ and find
this report.
Comment 8 Jakob Hirsch 2007-05-04 01:07:37 UTC
Please see

As the developer writes, 0.11.3 could generate wrong code. This is fixed in
0.12.0 (now released), so I guess it's best to upgrade.
