> It turns out that libc++.so.1 now depends on the symbol '_ZnamSt11align_val_t', which is 'operator new [](unsigned long, std::align_val_t)'. Embarassingly, libc++.so.1 has always depended on this C++17 specific variant of operator new. But FreeBSD's C++ ABI library, libcxxrt, has never supported this variant!
> Previously, this never was a problem, because libc++ provided its own weak definitions of these operators. But recently the define _LIBCPP_DISABLE_NEW_DELETE_DEFINITIONS was toggled to on by default, which disables those definitions. This happened in 9b40ee8eb0c194f4b2787801ac6f9ef8fc1b8f46 ("[libc++] Define new/delete in libc++abi only by default") by Louis Dionne.

The correct approach would be to have a CMake cache file under libcxx/cmake/cache/FreeBSD.cmake that sets the right configuration for building libcxx as a system library on freebsd. That way, the cmake code itself can stay free of platform specific logic.

Also note that I remember asking vendors before making that change, but I guess I either forgot to ask Freebsd or you told me OK without thinking about this. I can’t verify which one happened because I’m on my phone, but I’ll check it out to make sure I have your contact information if I need to ask that sort of questions in the future. It could be useful to have some sort of libcxx-vendors group in Phabricator that I could tag whenever I want to ping you folks.

Please send a Phab and I’ll revise it quickly (probably on Monday morning).
