How to repeat:
./BUILD/compile-amd64-debug-max on FreeBSD, using gcc 4.2

Suggested fix:
I would say, add: #include netdb.h
[4 Feb 2008 19:08] Hartmut Holzgraefe
FreeBSDs /usr/include/netdb.h doesn't define EAI_ADDRFAMILY
but marks it as obsoleted instead:

  #if 0
  /* obsoleted */
  #define EAI_ADDRFAMILY   1      /* address family for hostname not supported */

Looking into this.
[13 Mar 2008 16:37] Bugs System
Pushed into 6.0.4-alpha
[13 Mar 2008 17:32] Brian Aker
Freebsd should be fine now.
[16 Mar 2008 10:39] MC Brown
A note has been added to the 6.0.4 changelog: 

Compiling MySQL on FreeBSD would fail due to missing definitions for certain network constants.
[25 Mar 2008 15:21] Brian Aker
Fixed previous issue, looks like more issues exist for FreeBSD 7.0. We don't have 7.0 in pushbuild though... so I have started a download and will test everything directly (instead of doing this piecemeal through Susanne issuing bugs for each needed change).

A patch for this bug has been committed. After review, it may
be pushed to the relevant source trees for release in the next
version. You can access the patch from:


ChangeSet@1.2619, 2008-04-17 22:54:31+02:00, jperkin@mysql.com +8 -0
  Various build fixes for 6.0.5-alpha
    #include <string.h> for strlen()
  plug.in, Makefile.am, configure.in:
    CXXFLAGS is a user variable, you should not override it;
    use AM_CXXFLAGS instead.
    EAI_NODATA was deprecated in RFC3493, and at least FreeBSD
    has removed it in favour of EAI_NONAME, so handle that
    case.  May fix bug#34292.
    Wrap AH_VERBATIM sections within HAVE_LIBEVENT as
    they are defined unconditionally and break if
    libevent is not used.
    No comma for final enum.

I can't reproduce this anymore. I know that several build issues were fixed on FreeBSD 7 independent of this bug report, and a gcc 4.2.1 build on FreeBSD 7 now regularly passes in integration testing. If the problem persists, please re-open.
[17 Mar 2009 16:40] Susanne Ebrecht
Feel free to close it. It really seems to be fixed.
[17 Jun 2009 11:23] Lars Heill
Closing as per last comments.
