The travis CI build is failing for master and new commits. The CI is erroring out with
I was able to reproduce this issue and looking at the config.log it looks like it is failing at the line below while running a conftest.cpp -
The root cause of the problem is compatibility of thrift 0.11 with boost 1.65.1 . Travis recently upgraded there xcode to 9.2 and list of default packages now contains boost 1.65.1 and thrift 0.11.
Thrift uses stdcxx.h which includes boost/tr1/functional.hpp library. The support for tr1 has been removed in boost 1.65, see here under topic “Removed Libraries”.
Since tr1 library is no longer present in boost 1.65, this causes thrift to fail and eventually ./configure fails
As a solution I recommend that we uninstall boost 1.65 and install boost 1.60(the last compatible build with thrift).
I am not sure if this is a problem with thrift that they are not yet compatible with boost 1.65 yet or a problem with travis ci that they have included two incompatible versions. Will love to hear community's thoughts on it.
