BUILD/check-cpu does not work on Mac OS 10.5 anymore, since gcc 4.0.1 which is the default compiler on 10.5 does not understand -mtune=core2. As a result, all of the BUILD/* scripts are unusable.

The culprit is the following code introduced by davi.arnaut@sun.com-20100702193804-bakpwbwtd7po85y2:

--- cut ---
  if test "x$core2" = "xyes" ; then

  if test "x$compiler" != "x" ; then
    return 0
--- cut ---

How to repeat:
Run BUILD/check-cpu on Mac OS X 10.5

I see the following:

macbook-pro:mysql-trunk openxs$ BUILD/check-cpu 
testing core2 ... ok
macbook-pro:mysql-trunk openxs$ gcc --version
i686-apple-darwin9-gcc-4.2.1 (GCC) 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5577)

What's wrong with this my box (other than recent? Xcode for 10.5.x installed)?

Xcode 3.1 installs /usr/bin/gcc-4.2, but IIRC 4.0.1 is still the default one on 10.5 (at least that's how it is currently setup on my machine after upgrading Xcode). Perhaps you made 4.2 a default compiler (e.g. using gcc_select)?
[28 Jul 2010 13:34] Valeriy Kravchuk
Looks like i did it in a dirty way:

macbook-pro:mysql-trunk openxs$ ls -l /usr/bin/gcc
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  7 20 лис  2009 /usr/bin/gcc -> gcc-4.2

Indeed, now I remember that 4.0.1 was still the default, and our manual (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/installing-source.html) says 3.2+ is OK, while it is NOT:

macbook-pro:mysql-trunk openxs$ export CC=/usr/bin/gcc40
macbook-pro:mysql-trunk openxs$ echo $CC
macbook-pro:mysql-trunk openxs$ BUILD/check-cpu 
testing core2 ... failed

      Bug#55601: BUILD/check-cpu in mysql-trunk is broken on Mac OS X 10.5
      Restore the original behavior of check-cpu with respect to core2.
      It isn't used as a actual target processor type, but as a mean to
      perform other kinds of architecture checks.
