Hi all,

there is a problem building claws-mail which is included as version 3.3 in the 
openembedded path. I have the latest copy of the Mokomakefile development 
environment as well as the toolchain 
( installed. 

Running "make build-package-claws-mail" fails during the compile stage at a 
point where it looks like the arm-gcc tries to compile some C++ code and 
fails finding Adding 'CC="${CXX} LD="${CXX}"' to EXTRA_OECONF 
(seen in other packages) ends with an error during the configure stage that 

autoreconf: running: 
automake --foreign --add-missing --copy --force-missing --warnings=cross
automake: unknown warning category `cross'
autoreconf: running: gnu-configize
autoreconf: Leaving directory `.'
arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-g++: arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-g++: No such file 
or directory
arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-g++: no input files

I think the dependency to libstdc++ comes from an external library used by 

Did I handle this C vs. C++ problem in the BB files correctly or is there an 
other preferred way to tackle this? 

The error message:

"arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-g++: arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-g++: No such file 
or directory"

does not tell me so much. If anyone want to have fun looking into the logs I 
can send them around as well.

Regards, Michael
