|Priority||normal||Severity||minor||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||4.02.0+dev|
|Summary||0006346: Build failure with latest version of xcode on OSX|
|Description||It seems that the latest version of clang does not accept the `-fno-defer-pop` argument on OSX. See these tickets on github:|
AFAIK, this flag was never supported by clang and now it makes clang to fail. So I think it is better to just remove it when using clang.
I did a small patch to fix this on OSX. As gcc is now a symlink to clang by default, the configure script looks at the output of "$bytecc --version" to check whether it is clang or not.

|It is quite possible that -fno-defer-pop is not needed for GCC either. I put this flag a long time ago (in the 1990's) because some versions of GCC (1.xx) would otherwise miscompile the computed goto's in byterun/interp.c. So, with appropriate retesting on x86-32 bits (the platform where the defer-pop optimization matters), it might be possible to get rid of -fno-defer-pop entirely.|

I tried on a 32bits with gcc 4.4.7 and it generates the same code for byterun/interp.c with and without -fno-defer-pop.

I also tested with an older version of gcc (3.4.0) and I also get the same result: same ocamlrun file produced with and without -fno-defer-pop.
Should we do more testing (with older versions of gcc) or should we consider that it is safe to remove -fno-defer-pop?
|Since trunk doesn't build on OSX right now, it'd be really nice to have this resolved asap.|
I got tired of fixing it by hand every time I reconfigured, and just removed the no-defer-pop on entirely on Darwin.
I don't think any version of Darwin/x86 uses an old enough gcc that this would make a differ.
Remains the question of whether to remove it on other architectures or not.
FYI, future versions of clang will silently ignore this argument:
