I wanted to use Py_DEBUG build to help debug a problem
with ref counts in a C++ extension.

I cannot find eprintf in the sources of python
where does this symbol come from? How do I fix the
build to define it?

Are you sure you are using the correct compiler (i.e. from the XCode
release relevant for your operating system version)?

As far as I know I'm using the Xcode compiler. Does this match
your expectations?

$ which gcc

$ gcc -v

This might be a duplicate of issue 1099. Can you try building with
--enable-universalsdk ?

__eprintf should have been defined in libgcc, or else assert() should
not call it. To investigate this further, you should determine how many
copies of assert.h you have, whether they all refer to __eprintf, how
many copies of libgcc you have, whether they all define __eprintf, and
which header file and which library gets used.

I have Xcode 2.3 which is quite old.
Simple program to test assert works with my current setup.

I'm going to update to Xcode 2.5 and see what happens.
I'll report back once I've installed and rebuild python.

Xcode 2.5 solves the build issue.

I suspect you can close the 1099 saying use Xcode 2.5.

I think you can only get 2.5 by login in to the Apple developer site.

Grr... this problem is a pain... I have the __eprint undefined back...

I tried to get readline going as well and rebuilt. Couldn't get that
working then rebuilt without readline stuff and got the __eprintf.

I'm goint to have to give up on devleoping this on Mac and move to
linux. I don't have the spare time to get to the bottom of this problem.
