Thanks for sending the log. The key line (which I'm surprised did not make it into the error message) is this:

+ CC_FOR_BUILD=no_compiler_found

In order to build from source, you will need to install a compiler such as gcc. Also, as with any other embedded system, cross-compiling on a more capable machine might be easier and faster in the long run.

At the moment, binaries might be a better solution if you just want to run NUT.

It looks like this is the package description file I was looking for:


Interestingly, I don't see any direct reference to argp-standalone in that Mqkefile. Is it possible that your OpenWRT is running a different baseline version than what that package was built for? It seems like argp-standalone was broken out from glibc, so there is probably a package for it at that snapshot URL you sent before.
