Compiling Firefox 3.6.12 with icc

Hi there.

For the past two days I have been trying to build myself Firefox using the intel compiler. I have the latest c++ composer non-commercial edition. I have tried following this guide: http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/build-firefox-35-with-intel-c-compiler/ with no luck. The build stops with this error:

[bash]icpc: command line warning #10006: ignoring unknown option '-fno-handle-exceptions'
icpc: command line warning #10006: ignoring unknown option '-Wsynth'
icpc: command line warning #10006: ignoring unknown option '-Wno-ctor-dtor-privacy'

            argument types are: (char *, size_t, const char *, va_list)

Is there a problem with the new compiler that causes this? Can anybody build it?

Here is my .mozconfig file:

[plain]. $topsrcdir/browser/config/.mozconfig:

ac_add_options --enable-application=browser
mk_add_options MOZ_CO_PROJECT=browser

mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/obj-@CONFIG_GUESS@
# MOZCONFIG environment variable

export MOZILLA_OFFICIAL=1
export BUILD_OFFICIAL=1
mk_add_options MOZILLA_OFFICIAL=1
mk_add_options BUILD_OFFICIAL=1
mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/obj-@CONFIG_GUESS@
ac_add_options --enable-official-branding:
export CHOST="x86_64-pc-linux-gnu"

Any help appreciated.

Change the calls to read "int result = base::vsnprintf(/*...*/)" and "int result = base::vswprintf(/*...*/)" should work. Not sure why reference to the namespace is necessary. It seems that the two candidates reported by the compiler are merely different names of the same function.

I will try that tomorrow (it's currently 1.50 am where I am). Any ideas why that should work? I would really like to know from a learning standpoint.

This looks like an issue with the compiler. Our front end team is looking into it now, and I'll update the thread as the investigation proceeds. It looks like this only reproduces with the compiler on Intel 64 architecture, not on 32-bit, interestingly. The workaround provided previously in the thread should work, although I haven't confirmed myself.

Cheers. I am using 64 bit Ubuntu 10.10 with the latest Intel C++ compiler.

This compiler error has been resolved in the version 12.1 of the compiler that's available as part of the Intel C++ Composer XE 2011 update 6 or above. Let me know if you still have problems. Thanks.
