pkgconf cross-compile personality file format
pkgconf cross-compile personality files provide a useful mechanism
for storing various information about system toolchains. Information stored
.personality files include information about
paths used by a cross-compile toolchain, such as the sysroot directory and
default include and library paths. pkgconf uses this information to
determine what information is necessary to use libraries.
.personality file follows a format
inspired by RFC822. Comments are prefixed by a pound sign, hash sign or
octothorpe (#), and variable assignment is similar to POSIX shell.
Properties are defined using RFC822-style stanzas.
Properties are set using RFC822-style stanzas which consist of a keyword, followed by a colon (:) and then the value the property should be set to. Variable substitution is always performed regardless of property type.
There are two types of property:
- The property will be set to the text of the value.
- Fragment List
- The property will be set to a list of fragments parsed from the text. The input text must be in a format that is suitable for passing to a POSIX shell without any shell expansions after variable substitution has been done.
- The triplet used by the cross-compile toolchain. (mandatory; literal)
- The directory used by the system root of the cross-compile toolchain. (mandatory; literal)
- A list of directories to look for pc(5) files in. (mandatory; fragment list)
- A list of directories that are included by default in the search path for include files. (mandatory; fragment list)
- A list of directories that are included by default in the search path for libraries. (mandatory; fragment list)
An example .personality file:
# This is a comment Triplet: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu SysrootDir: /home/kaniini/sysroot/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu DefaultSearchPaths: /home/kaniini/sysroot/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/lib/pkgconfig \ /home/kaniini/sysroot/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/share/pkgconfig SystemIncludePaths: /home/kaniini/sysroot/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/include SystemLibraryPaths: /home/kaniini/sysroot/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/lib
