@omoerbeek omoerbeek commented Jul 20, 2020

Due to some yet undiagnosed interaction of the standard and boost include
files, we hit a syntax error when compiling the boost uuid code on
OpenBSD. This is fixed by using -std=gnu++11. This only happens
when compiling In other places compiling uuid-utils.hh
with -std=c++11 does not trigger an error.

The erorr is:

    return __builtin_ia32_vec_ext_v2si((__v2si)__m, 0);

Looking at the preprocessed source the __attribute__((__vector_size__(16))) was lost in the declaration of __v4si

Found the offending line in /usr/include/readline/rlstdc.h:

#ifndef __attribute__
#  if __GNUC__ < 2 || (__GNUC__ == 2 && __GNUC_MINOR__ < 8) || __STRICT_ANSI__
#    define __attribute__(x)
#  endif

This kills vector ops... better diff than above forthcoming
