           Summary: Use of ar T option not supported by older binutils
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Unspecified
        OS/Version: Unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Tools / Tests
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: landry at openbsd.org

OpenBSD still uses binutils 2.15, and our ar(1) doesn't support the 'T' flag used in various places :

./Tools/TestWebKitAPI/GNUmakefile.am:   $(AM_V_at)$(foreach archive, $(webcore_layer_archives), $(shell ar t $(archive) | xargs -n50 ar cruT $@))
./Source/WebKit2/GNUmakefile.am:        $(AM_V_at)$(foreach archive, $(webcore_layer_gtk2_archives), $(shell ar t $(archive) | xargs -n50 ar cruT $@))
./Source/autotools/SetupLibtool.m4:    AR_FLAGS="cruT"


It would be nice to test for its support before bindly assuming all platforms have it. It was added in binutils 2.19.1.

Maybe i can workaround it in SetupLibtool.m4 by setting AR_FLAGS in the env, but the two other occurences hardcode it.
