             Bug #: 15136
           Summary: Clang does not find precompiled header under some
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW

I'm using nevest SVN on Ubuntu Raring but this problem also occurred in

I use precompiled headers but they are not found under certain circumstances.
Here's how to replicate the issue:

sudo apt-get install ninja-build
sudo apt-get install libicu-dev
bzr branch lp:libcolumbus
cd libcolumbus
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debug -G Ninja ..

You get an error message saying that the pch can not be found. If you use the
Make backend, the pch is found. With gcc both Make and Ninja work without

What happens in the build is that the precompiled header is written to
BUILDDIR/src and that directory is then added to the command line with -I.

The only difference between the two invocations I can see is that Make uses
global paths like this:


whereas Ninja cd's into the build root and specifies the path with this:


The latter invocation is in the correct directory, since it refers to the
source file like this: ../src/ErrorValues.cc and it works just fine if
precompiled headers are disabled.

Thus the include paths should be set up correctly but Clang does not seem to be
able to find the pch.
