GCC Build With Strange Errors

I have been fighting with these strange errors for some days, and finally I got it.

Problem

The core problem is that my C_INCLUDE_PATH and CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATHends with a colon. Path ending with a colon will include current path, aka./ which caused the error.

Solution

We need to remove the trailing colon, so I write a bash function for it.

# usage: removeTrailingColon str
# example:
#    C_INCLUDE_PATH=$(removeTrailingColon $C_INCLUDE_PATH)
removeTrailingColon() {
    if [[ $1 == *: ]]
    then
        local strColonRemoved=$1;
        local strColonRemoved=${strColonRemoved:0:(-1)};
        echo $strColonRemoved;
    else
        echo $1
    fi
}

Usage is like this:

export C_INCLUDE_PATH=$(removeTrailingColon $C_INCLUDE_PATH)
export CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH=$(removeTrailingColon $CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH)
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$(removeTrailingColon $LD_LIBRARY_PATH)
export LIBRARY_PATH=$(removeTrailingColon $LIBRARY_PATH)

Elaborate on problem

I’ll list the error I encountered building gcc-4.7.3, so that people will be able to access it through a search engine:
