Hello Guix,

I would like to ask for help with a couple of issues that I ran into while
trying to fix a build failure in ‘texlive-texmf’ in the core-updates-frozen
branch on powerpc64le-linux:

  fmtutil [ERROR]: not building luajittex due to missing engine: luajittex
  fmtutil [ERROR]: not building luajithbtex due to missing engine: luajithbtex

The problem is straightforward: LuaJIT isn’t supported on powerpc64le.
‘texlive-latex-base’ disables these engines accordingly:

    ;; LuaJIT is not ported to powerpc64le* yet.
    ,@(if (string-prefix? "powerpc64le"
                          (or (%current-target-system)
                              (%current-system)))
        '("luajittex" "luajithbtex" "mfluajit") '())

So all I have to do is disable these “*luajit*” engines in ‘texlive-texmf’
as well. Unfortunately copying the same ‘if’ expression like so:

So this is my first question: why does that ‘if’ condition work in
‘texlive-latex-base’ but not in ‘texlive-texmf’? I can’t see a significant
difference between the two.

In any case, I thought I could solve this by using a gexp. I tried several
different variations, but none worked. I think this was my best shot:

So my second question is: can somebody see any way to make ‘texlive-mf’
disable the “*luajit*’ engines when building for powerpc64le?

The issue here is that the %current-target-system and %current-system
are not defined at build time. You need to force their evaluation by
using "unquote", this way:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(arguments
 `(#:phases
   ...
   (if (string-prefix? "powerpc64le"
                      ,(or (%current-target-system)
                           (%current-system)))
      ...)))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
>
> +                #~(let-system (system target)
> +                    ;; LuaJIT is not ported to powerpc64le* yet.

Here also you need to unquote this part, using "ungexp":

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
   #$(let-system (system target)
      ...
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Thanks,

Mathieu

Ah! I wasn’t aware of that trick. It indeed solved the problem. Thank you
very much for your help!

‘texlive-texmf’  already has this quasiquote, so I only needed the unquote
below to make it work.

Not that it matters anymore, but just for completeness: unfortunately
I couldn’t make this one work. When I used “ungexp”, I got this error:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

I tried using this at the beginning of the gexp:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
            (with-imported-modules '((guix build utils))
              #~(begin
                  (use-modules ((guix build utils)))
                      ⋮
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

But it still resulted in the same error. But no problem, your “unquote”
solution worked.
