Trying to install HDF5.jl, but running into the fact that homebrew keeps trying to build gcc from scratch. This seems to be known in HDF5 (here and here). They pointed to the Homebrew team, but they’ve closed the issue and seem to think it’s fixed (here). But seems like it’s not.
HDF5 (which also underlies JLD as I understand it) is a pretty central package to be uninstallable for almost 2 months now, and I know it’s basically jammed my workflow. Anyone know what’s up with it?
UPDATE: Homebrew team says:
The gcc bottle is not marked as relocatable so we make no guarantees about --force-bottle working. We’d happily review a PR changing the formula in some way so that this doesn’t happen but none of the maintainers are working on this and we don’t just leave issues open no one is working on.
So sounds like it’s up to Julia teams to come up with a new implementation?
