Cannot build OpenSSL 1.1.1pre4 on Nginx mainline 1.13.12?

Reported by: Graymanflo@… Owned by:
Priority: blocker Milestone: nginx-1.15
Component: nginx-core Version: 1.13.x
Keywords: openssl Cc: graymanflo@…
uname -a: 4.9.0-6-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.82-1+deb9u3 (2018-03-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux
nginx -V: 1.13.12-1~stretch


Good evening!

I am trying to compile OpenSSL 1.1.1pre4 with Nginx 1.13.12, for this I had to disable -Werror in auto/cc/gcc to omit a missing initializer warning which was treated as an error in OpenSSL, I believe this causes the build to fail since compiling with OpenSSL 1.0.2n works fine

Here is the Nginx build log for OpenSSL 1.1.1pre4: What could be wrong or is there a specific way I have to compile Nginx to use OpenSSL 1.1.1?

From the symptoms described, it looks like the CFLAGS value as constructed by nginx ./configure and set in nginx's Makefile is somehow propagated to OpenSSL config and building, which shouldn't normally happen. Something like this can happen if somehow export CFLAGS or .EXPORT_ALL_VARIABLES was added to make rules.

In Debian packages, using DPKG_EXPORT_BUILDFLAGS=1 seems to have identical effect, and will be enough to screw things up if nginx is configured to build something with --with-openssl=... or similar options. If there is DPKG_EXPORT_BUILDFLAGS=1 in your debian/rules file, try commenting it out.

Thanks, I tried commenting it out and even setting its value to 0 but the new rule did not do the trick here.

Could there be any other obstacle causing the error 2 as seen in the pastebin link above?

Quick update to this, adding --with-pcre=pcre2-10.31 is the cause of the build failing.

Building with PCRE2 is not something nginx supports. You have to use PCRE, not PCRE2.
