gcc error building Python in OE

This error message provides very little clue as to what the actual problem is when compiling Python during the OpenEmbedded build process:

| gcc: error: directory”: No such file or directory

As it turns out (thanks to the tip here), this is caused by a change in subversion.

Luckily it’s easy to inject your own copy earlier in the path than the one it usually finds. Simply create a script called svnversion in $GUMSTIXTOP/bitbake/bin and insert the following:

echo exported

Your problem should be solved.
