Bug #9818

__builtin_setjmp and __builtin_longjmp caused a build failure on PPC Linux with gcc 4.4.0

Description

From a certain revision around r45503 to r45515, Ruby began to use __builtin_setjmp and __builtin_longjmp on PPC Linux, instead of _setjmp and _longjmp. However, __builtin_setjmp and __builtin_longjmp cause a build failure because they are not compatible with the -fPIE option, at least with gcc 4.4.0 on PPC Linux.

By specifying the --disable-pie option to configure, I succeed in bulding Ruby.

Interestingly, the build succeeds on the Ruby CI environment for PPC Linux, which is using gcc 4.7.2, so this might be a bug in gcc 4.4.0. In any case, I suppose __builtin_setjmp and __builtin_longjmp are undocumented functions of gcc (aren't they?), so we should be careful to use them. I hope this problem is avoided on the Ruby side even if this is a bug in gcc 4.4.0 on PPC Linux.

How about specifying -fPIE (unless --disable-pie is specified) when checking __builtin_setjmp and __builtin_longjmp in the configure script?
