<arjan> it's symbols that ldd -u complains about
<arjan> undefined symbol: g_free (/usr/lib/gaim/statenotify.so)
<arjan> eg there statenotify doesn't do the -lglib thing
<arjan> and thus has it as unresolved symbol
<warren> hmmm, so this is probably a bug?
<arjan> depends
<arjan> are these libs or plugins?
<arjan> if they're libs then yes it's a bug
<arjan> if it's a plugin.. then it might be a bug but you need advise from a
tools person
<notting> arjan: if it's a plugin, it's a bug if the library it comes from isn't
linked into the main app, right?
<warren> these are plugins
<jakub> warren: even then, it is a bug
<jakub> warren: it wouldn't be a bug if the plugin intentionally referenced e.g.
a symbol in the binary
<jakub> warren: or if there are multiple implementations of that symbol that
should be chosen at runtime
<jakub> warren: but in this case just add -lglib
<notting> or -lglib-2.0 :)
<jakub> warren: or -lglib2, not sure which one
<warren> where is the best place to add that?
<arjan> makefile
<arjan> and do `pkg-config --ldflags glib-2.0` or something
<arjan> not actual hardcoded -lglib-2.0
<jakub> arjan: `pkg-config --libs glib-2.0` actually
<arjan> or do gtk
<arjan> since the same stuff uses gtk too
<arjan> if gaim has glib also used it works by accident
<notting> if glib is already in the address space of the binary when it opens
the plugin, it should work
<jakub> warren: if e.g. the library you are (not) likning against is versioned,
then it will not work properly at all

<warren> arjan, jakub: "upstream doesn't want to be bothered with 'bugs' that
have no ill effects" and they said they wont accept a patch that uses
`something` in makefile
<warren> arjan, since this is not a regression, and there are no ill effects,
can I just ignore it for now and make it gets fixed upstream for next week's
security hole? 
<arjan> warren: if you make sure the main binary ldd's those same libs in then I
guess it's ok to waive for now
<warren> arjan, yes it is fine.
<LSchiere2> warren: you might also want to let jakub know that all those gaim_*
functions ARE "intentionally referenced e.g. a symbol in the binary" which he
says "wouldn't be a bug"
<arjan> it's the glib/gtk ones that are iffy
<Paco-Paco> warren: there are some variables set by autoconf whose inclusion in
the appropriate Makefile.am files should fix this

So yeah.  Eventually get this into upstream.

This is fixed in upstream CVS now
