Description Hans de Goede 2005-08-13 06:32:25 UTC
On x86_64 "gdlib-config --ldflags" outputs:
-L/usr/lib64 -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/lib64 -L/usr/lib64 -L/usr/X11R6/lib64

The -L/usr/lib64 is not needed and certainly not twice!, but does no real harm.
Harm however is done by the long obsolete use of --rpath, which causes
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to be ignored, and there are real uses for LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

A similar bug in freetype-config has cost me 2 hours to find, this might even
have the same cause as the freetype0config bug, see bug 139199 .

Looking into it.

Read ya, Phil

Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2005-09-07 15:19:07 UTC
OK, fixed by not including the broken freetype-config --libs flags.

Will be in next development package.

Read ya, Phil
