Gcc ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64

gccmakefileocaml

Alright so I'm making a lexer and a parser using Ocamlyacc. I've done my research and I think it's something to do with my makefile not picking the right bit version for my compiler or something like it? I don't know much about makefiles which is why I'm asking.

I've run my program on another computer where it works without trouble so it gotta be something to do with my machine.

It's a MacBook Pro 64 bit. I'm using Xcode 4.2.1.

Here's the makefile:

SHELL        = /bin/sh

C_C          = gcc 
CPP_C        = g++ 
ifdef GPROF
C_CPP_FLAGS = -pg -O3
else
ifndef DEBUG
C_CPP_FLAGS  = -O3
else
C_CPP_FLAGS  = -g
endif
endif
C_LD         = $(C_C)
CPP_LD       = $(CPP_C)

C_YACC       = bison
C_LEX        = flex

AR           = ar
RANLIB       = ranlib

OCAML_C      = ocamlc
OCAML_OPT_C  = ocamlopt
ifdef GPROF
OCAML_C_FLAGS     = -dtypes 
OCAML_OPT_C_FLAGS = -dtypes
OCAML_LD     = $(OCAML_C) -g
OCAML_OPT_LD = $(OCAML_OPT_C) -p
else
ifndef DEBUG
OCAML_C_FLAGS     = -dtypes 
OCAML_OPT_C_FLAGS = -dtypes
OCAML_LD     = $(OCAML_C) -g
OCAML_OPT_LD = $(OCAML_OPT_C)
else
OCAML_C_FLAGS     = -dtypes
OCAML_OPT_C_FLAGS = -dtypes
OCAML_LD     = $(OCAML_C) -g
OCAML_OPT_LD = $(OCAML_OPT_C)
endif
endif
OCAML_MKTOP  = ocamlmktop
OCAML_CP     = ocamlcp
OCAML_DEP    = ocamldep
OCAML_LEX    = ocamllex
OCAML_YACC   = ocamlyacc

OCAML_C_CPP_INC = -I $(shell $(OCAML_C) -v | tail -1 | sed -e \
                         's/^Standard library directory: //')

The error that I'm getting is:

ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64

Here's the full output:

Thank you in advance!

EDIT:
I'm only using Ocaml. No C++ or C that needs to be linked with it. I've never tried running my ocaml code with a makefile before but I can run other ocaml code on this computer. This is the first time it fails but it is the first time I use a makefile.

And the same makefile and code works on other machines(older machines though) so I think it has something to do with this one using 64 bits.

I found I've been given another makefile which looks like this:

Best Solution

The interesting line is

ld: warning: ignoring file /usr/local/lib/ocaml/libcamlrun.a, file was built for archive which is not the architecture being linked (x86_64)

It tells you that your ocaml runtime is a probably a 32 bit library, instead of the 64 bits you need.

You might want to try the "-m32" flag of g++ to compile everything in 32 bits, or to install a 64 bit version of ocaml.
