Summary0001289: amule fails to build on non glibc systems (e.g. uclibc)
DescriptionAttempt to build amule with non glibc (e.g. with uclibc) fails with errors like:

MuleDebug.cpp:36:23: execinfo.h: No such file or directory
MuleDebug.cpp: In function `wxString get_backtrace(unsigned int)':
MuleDebug.cpp:291: error: `backtrace' was not declared in this scope
MuleDebug.cpp:291: warning: unused variable 'backtrace'
MuleDebug.cpp:296: error: `backtrace_symbols' was not declared in this scope
MuleDebug.cpp:296: warning: unused variable 'backtrace_symbols'

make: *** [all] Error 2

This was build with uclibc, but similar problem is reported to exist on FreeBSD.

But as it was told by our base-sytem developer (and he is uclibc developer too) at bugs.gentoo.org/146693 :

"yeah, amule should make sure execinfo.h is provided and if not, stub out its backtrace calls ... those functions are a total GNUism"

Another possible solution is to disable debugging like wxGTK does (in attachment you'll find relevant configure.in code).

Yea, I know that such reports are looking better when patches are applied, but currently I don't have enough time to delve into code, so may be somebody else will look at this problem before...

Thank you for your time.
