I'm having problems when building with the regular gcc package. Thanks for the tips, though. I have a few more ideas I'll try out. And thanks for maintaining mlton-git!

Hi xyproto, I just tried it myself. It seems to fail on devices with multilib glibc. When I made this package, I multilib was completely disabled on my machine. I also tried it on a different machine without multilib and it installed without any problems.

Are you using multilib glibc right now?

Hi, I'm trying to upgrade the mlton package in [community], but I get several errors related to ld and -fPIC. When trying to build this package, I get the same types of errors. Are you able to build this package (mlton-git), or do you also encounter problems? Any tips for making mlton build is welcome.

Note: the mlton in the official repository is required to build mlton-git, and mlton also conflicts with mlton-git. This is intended, because mlton-git is a complete replacement for mlton (provides mlton). So, when upgrading, you will not need to uninstall and install mlton, because mlton-git provides mlton and can fulfill the dependency. Compiling requires about 5.5GB of RAM dedicated because of MLton's internal tests, so if you only have 8GB of RAM, opening a web browser during installation of mlton-git could be disasterous. It also takes a long time to compile (~10m, as they say on their website), so you'll have to be patient.
