Compiling Nginx with `libdeflate` - possible?

October 25, 2021 07:50AM
I am attempting to compile Nginx 1.21.3 with libdeflate[1] with a view to comparing performance against classic Zlib and the Cloudflare fork of Zlib[2].

I can successfully compile Nginx with classic Zlib. I can also successfully compile Nginx with Cloudflare Zlib. I cannot yet compile Nginx with libdeflate.

I am falling down during Nginx `make` with this error:

cd ../../libdeflate-source/libdeflate-1.8 \
&& make distclean \
&& CFLAGS="-O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe " CC="cc" \
./configure \
&& make libz.a
make[2]: Entering directory '/home/pete/libdeflate-source/libdeflate-1.8'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target 'distclean'. Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/pete/libdeflate-source/libdeflate-1.8'
make[1]: *** [objs/Makefile:3107: ../../libdeflate-source/libdeflate-1.8/libz.a] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/pete/nginx-source/nginx-1.21.3'
make: *** [Makefile:10: build] Error 2

I confirm the directory `/home/pete/libdeflate-source/libdeflate-1.8` has the Makefile and is readable by Nginx make.

Compiling libdeflate in isolation outside of Nginx with `make distclean` throws the same error:

No rule to make target 'distclean'

There is no reference to distclean in the libdeflate Makefile[3], so I am at a dead end.

Question #0: Am I attempting the impossible here?
Question #1: Is there a way to persuade libdeflate in its current state to compile with Nginx?
Question #2: Is there something I should be raising on the libdeflate project side to achieve a compilation with Nginx?

Thank you for reading, I am grateful for any advice and feedback.
