Question about a CMake macro in Clang repository

Hi, first message here, hope that’s the right place to ask

I’m working on the packaging of an application (Cling++) which depends on Clang and Llvm, for the NixOs operating system.
Currently my compilation fails at the Clang level with this error: Unknown CMake command “find_first_existing_vc_file”.

In the Clang repository there’s:
lib/Basic/CMakeLists.txt
7:find_first_existing_vc_file(“${LLVM_MAIN_SRC_DIR}” llvm_vc)
8:find_first_existing_vc_file(“${CLANG_SOURCE_DIR}” clang_vc)

find_first_existing_vc_file does not seem to be defined with the macro keyword nor included with the include keyword inside the Clang repository.

However we can have a definition for this macro inside the Llvm repository:

llvm/include/llvm/Support/CMakeLists.txt
11:macro(find_first_existing_vc_file out_var path)
34:find_first_existing_vc_file(llvm_vc “${LLVM_MAIN_SRC_DIR}”)

How, by which mechanism is Clang compilation supposed to use/include this macro from LLVM ?

In my case, the compilation of Clang fails with this message:

– Performing Test CXX_SUPPORTS_NO_NESTED_ANON_TYPES_FLAG - Success
CMake Error at lib/Basic/CMakeLists.txt:7 (find_first_existing_vc_file):
Unknown CMake command “find_first_existing_vc_file”.

Regards

S.R.

What old version of LLVM are you building? The macro was moved from
llvm/Support/CMakeLists.txt into AddLLVM.cmake in 2017 (git
76d02cebab, SVN 312419).
