Has anyone else come across this issue? Or knows how to resolve it?

I'm trying to compile release 7.26.02. And I got this error:

Code to determine current date and time failed!

So, I went into /CMakeLists.txt (the main one) and entered the build date manually, replacing:

message(FATAL_ERROR "Code to determine current date and time failed!\n")
[this us the line that gives the fatal error if date and time protocol fail]
set(CONFIG_DATE "161214") #<===== I also tried "20161214"
[I simply replaced the automatic datestamp with a manual one to get around the problem]

After making this substitution, it seems to be working well for 70% of the cmake process but then I hit this error where it says that it was unable to find Tcl, itcl or Tk libraries depite the fact they are installed and in directories where CMake was searching (see list below)

Here are the details:

Could not find at least one of Tcl, Itcl or Tk libraries in /usr/lib64,
/usr/lib64/itcl4.0.5, and /usr/lib64

Here are the contents of the Tcl,Itcl and Tk lib folders:



see this pastebin:


see this:

It seems to me, I have all the needed libraries and the correct versions. I have check permission and everyone of the directories has read permissions given to everyone.

Any ideas?

@gjw: Thanks, should be fixed now.

It does not build any more.
It stops at 44 percentage.
It seems to me that some
functions in the boost libraries
have been removed and put
into g++ instead.

I'm getting the following error during compile:
/tmp/pacaurtmp-/brlcad/src/brlcad-7.24.2/src/other/boost/boost/xpressive/detail/static/transmogrify.hpp:42:46: error: no type named ‘string_type’ in ‘struct boost::xpressive::cpp_regex_traits<char>’
