Description

Hi,

As I understand Debian stretch amd64 is the only distribution that can be used to build Replicant,
however it has no /usr/lib64/libxml2.so.

Instead that library is part of the libxml2-dev package, and lives at:

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libxml2.so

See the following for more details:

However the toolchain build expects it to be present:

$ ./vendor/replicant/build-toolchain
[...]
-- Clang version: 3.7.0
-- Configuring done
-- Generating done
-- Build files have been written to: /home/replicant/replicant-6.0/toolchain/clang
+ nproc
+ echo 1
+ make -j 1
[...]
[ 98%] Built target libclang
make[2]: *** No rule to make target '/usr/lib64/libxml2.so', needed by 'bin/c-index-test'.  Stop.
CMakeFiles/Makefile2:13807: recipe for target 'tools/clang/tools/c-index-test/CMakeFiles/c-index-test.dir/all' failed
make[1]: *** [tools/clang/tools/c-index-test/CMakeFiles/c-index-test.dir/all] Error 2
Makefile:149: recipe for target 'all' failed
make: *** [all] Error 2

So this should ideally be fixed in the toolchain script or at worse mentioned in the documentation to have the user create a symlink.

Denis.
