#65934: mesa @22.1.7 +tests does not build on PPC Leopard, Mac OS X 10.5.8, because
of Undefined symbols for architecture ppc

Comment (by ballapete):

 The `test variant` built, and most tests succeeded (maybe due to my use of
 `Python 3.9`). During build and test phases a lot of complaints about the
 use of `-mtls-dialect=gnu2` appear. Reading the help output of
 `/opt/local/bin/gcc-mp-7` I can see:

 Thread model: posix

 Should the option `-disable-tls` be avoided in a new release of `GCC 7`?

 The `mesa` file `meson.build` contains this block:

   513   # -mtls-dialect=gnu2 speeds up non-initial-exec TLS significantly
 but requires
   514   # full toolchain (including libc) support.
   515   have_mtls_dialect = false
   516   foreach c_arg : get_option('c_args')
   517     if c_arg.startswith('-mtls-dialect=')
   518       have_mtls_dialect = true
   519       break
   520     endif
   521   endforeach
   522   if not have_mtls_dialect
   523     # need .run to check libc support. meson aborts when calling
 .run when
   524     # cross-compiling, but because this is just an optimization we
 can skip it
   525     if meson.is_cross_build() and not meson.has_exe_wrapper()
   526       warning('cannot auto-detect -mtls-dialect when cross-
 compiling, using compiler default')
   527     else
   528       # -fpic to force dynamic tls, otherwise TLS relaxation defeats
   529       gnu2_test = cc.run('int __thread x; int main() { return x; }',
   530                          args: ['-mtls-dialect=gnu2', '-fpic'],
   531                          name: '-mtls-dialect=gnu2')
   532       if gnu2_test.returncode() == 0 and (
   533             # check for lld 13 bug:
   534             host_machine.cpu_family() != 'x86_64' or
   535             # get_linker_id misses LDFLAGS=-fuse-ld=lld:
   536             #cc.get_linker_id() != 'ld.lld' or
   537             cc.links('''int __thread x; int y; int main() { __asm__(
   538                   "leaq x at TLSDESC(%rip), %rax\n"
   539                   "movq y at GOTPCREL(%rip), %rdx\n"
   540                   "call *x at TLSCALL(%rax)\n"); }''', name: 'split
   541             )
   542         c_args += '-mtls-dialect=gnu2'
   543         cpp_args += '-mtls-dialect=gnu2'
   544       endif
   545     endif

 Can it be that it erroneously returns that `MacPorts gcc7 7.5.0_3`
 supports the `-mtls-dialect=gnu2` option?
