Hi guix!

A program I'm packaging requires newlib-nano, but when building, the
linker fails to find g_nano and c_nano.

I found out those names are taken from the nano.specs file we install
> cat $(guix build newlib-nano)/arm-none-eabi/lib/nano.specs | grep -- -l

-lc_nano
%{specs=rdimon.specs:-lrdimon_nano} %{specs=nosys.specs:-lnosys}
%(nano_link) %:replace-outfile(-lc -lc_nano) %:replace-outfile(-lg -lg_nano)
%:replace-outfile(-lrdimon -lrdimon_nano) %:replace-outfile(-lstdc++ -lstdc++_nano)
%:replace-outfile(-lsupc++ -lsupc++_nano)
%{!shared:%{g*:-lg_nano} %{!p:%{!pg:-lc_nano}}%{p:-lc_p}%{pg:-lc_p}}

However, those files are missing:
> ls $(guix build newlib-nano)/arm-none-eabi/lib/ | grep lib

libc.a
libg.a
libgloss-linux.a
libm.a
libnosys.a
librdimon.a
librdimon-v2m.a
librdpmon.a

I was able to build the program by modifing the .specs file with:

(add-after 'install 'remove-suffix
           (lambda* (#:key outputs #:allow-other-keys)
             (substitute*
                 (string-append
                  (assoc-ref outputs "out")
                  "/arm-none-eabi/lib/nano.specs")
               (("_nano") ""))
             #t))

But reading online, it seems the _nano is a common suffix.  Should we
rename the output libs?  Should we symlink?  I know nothing about this,
but it might be a bug.

Thanks! Nicolò

Hello Nicolò,

This is definitely a bug that I encountered today. I'm convinced it's a
bug because I came across this page that says so:
https://newlib.sourceware.narkive.com/kfT8XDEe/building-libc-nano-and-libg-nano

The git repo it links to has the following shell function. I think we
should emulate its behavior.

(On a slightly unrelated note, can someone PLEASE accept my patch in bug
44750 for a different arm-none-eabi issue. It's desperately needed.)

copyNanoLibraries() {
	(
	source="${1}"
	destination="${2}"
	messageA "\"nano\" libraries copy"
	multilibs=$("${destination}/bin/${target}-gcc" -print-multi-lib)
	sourcePrefix="${source}/${target}/lib"
	destinationPrefix="${destination}/${target}/lib"
	for multilib in ${multilibs}; do
		multilib="${multilib%%;*}"
		sourceDirectory="${sourcePrefix}/${multilib}"
		destinationDirectory="${destinationPrefix}/${multilib}"
		mkdir -p "${destinationDirectory}"
		cp "${sourceDirectory}/libc.a" "${destinationDirectory}/libc_nano.a"
		cp "${sourceDirectory}/libg.a" "${destinationDirectory}/libg_nano.a"
		cp "${sourceDirectory}/librdimon.a" "${destinationDirectory}/librdimon_nano.a"
		cp "${sourceDirectory}/libstdc++.a" "${destinationDirectory}/libstdc++_nano.a"
		cp "${sourceDirectory}/libsupc++.a" "${destinationDirectory}/libsupc++_nano.a"
	done

	mkdir -p "${destination}/${target}/include/newlib-nano"
	cp "${source}/${target}/include/newlib.h" "${destination}/${target}/include/newlib-nano"

	if [ "${keepBuildFolders}" = "n" ]; then
		messageB "\"nano\" libraries remove install folder"
		maybeDelete "${top}/${buildNative}/${nanoLibraries}"
	fi
	)
}

I CC'd Efraim because they commited my last gcc-arm-none-eabi patch. I hope
that's ok. I'm not really sure who is responsible for this toolchain.

I successfully compiled some QMK firmware using this patch, something that
failed previously.

No one is really in charge of the cross toolchains, it's more of when it
becomes relevant to someone and it's time to fix something.

It looks good to me, I made a small change, changing link to symlink and
made the link relative. I thought about factoring out 'lib' or '.a' from
the find-files but ultimately decided against it, I think it's probably
easier to read as-is.

Patch pushed! Feel free to tag me on other ones like this too.
