[Openmcl-devel] building ccl with Xcode 7 (or Xcode 7 command-line tools)

If you try to build an older CCL release, such as 1.10, on a system with the Xcode 7 tools installed, you will probably encounter an error of the form "unsupported directive '.stabs'".

To work around this, edit the Makefile in lisp-kernel/darwinx8632 or lisp-kernel/darwinx8664, and add "-Q" to ASFLAGS.  This causes the GNU-based system assembler to be used instead of the clang integrated assembler.

The 1.11 pre-release and the trunk Makefiles have been updated with this change already, so if you are using one of them, there's nothing for you to do.
