Building using meson on POWER
I want to build Midnight Commander on an IBM POWER9 machine, which has GLib as a dependency, so I tried building GLib using
meson first. Using version 2.67.0 tarball, I get the following error message:
subprojects/libffi/src/meson.build:71:2: ERROR: Problem encountered: Unsupported pair: system "linux", cpu family "ppc64"
Here are some system details:
$ uname -a Linux tellico-master0 4.14.0-115.10.1.el7a.ppc64le #1 SMP Wed Jun 26 09:32:17 UTC 2019 ppc64le ppc64le ppc64le GNU/Linux
$ cat /etc/redhat-release Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.6 (Maipo)
$ gcc --version gcc (Spack GCC) 10.2.0 Copyright (C) 2020 Free Software Foundation, Inc. This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO warranty; not even for MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
