Added a workaround for Clang compiler.


We need support for C++. For various language support, requiring AC_PROG_CC in this macro may be inappropriate. But we have to check first whether removing this AC_REQUIRE causes issues before we do so.

(file #31957)

Fri 15 Aug 2014 09:51:01 AM UTC, original submission:

As I mentioned in the submission above, LLVM Clang support on this macro is partially corrupt because of different error handling from GCC.

For instance, in my Ivy Bridge environment with Clang compiler,

  • AX_GCC_ARCHFLAG([no]) selects option `-mcpu=ivybridge' which is not really supported by LLVM Clang
  • AX_GCC_ARCHFLAG([yes]) selects option `-mtune=ivybridge' which is not really support by LLVM Clang (as well)

This is because Clang does not fail on unknown processor type specified in -mcpu=... and -mtune=... options. This fix (changes order of option checking) does not resolve all the problems (AX_GCC_ARCHFLAG([yes]) still selects `-mtune=ivybridge') but it will solve some of them.

Please note that the submitted patch is expected to be applied after the patch #8514 but you could apply this patch first (with small modifications).
