Re: Production Version 42.0 Fails to Build

Hi Steve,

if I understand you correctly, you have a source tree from the snapshot tarball which won’t build and a tree from git which will build. Is that correct?
Assuming the git is checked out on the version 42 tag, you should be able to do a diff and see what is different between them. I’d start with a simple diff of the two emacspeak-eww.el files, then a diff of the lisp directories if the file level diff doesn’t tell you anything useful. 

for the record, I’ve built on both Linux and OSX with no problems (but from git not snapshot). I’m also using emacs 24.5

The other thing I would try, just to be certain, is run make clean as root. I’ve run into problems with systems I’ve built as a normal user, but then run install as root, which has created root owned artifacts. Later, when I do a make clean as a normal user to update or build again, the root owned artefacts are not removed and you get unpredictable results.

Suspect you need to do a make clean first followed by a make config.

No go.  I cleared out previous source and pkg directories and I still
get the error.

emacspeak-eww.el:62:1:Error: Symbol's function definition is void:

I also included 'make clean' before my 'make config' line but still
the error above. It's gotta be something else.

I have a similar build procedure for the git version and that one
compiles fine.
