Description Joe Orton 2003-08-28 19:26:04 UTC
When relinking a library during the httpd install on ppc64, libtool is adding an
RPATH for /usr/lib64.  I am guessing this is because libtool is picking up:

sys_lib_search_path_spec="/lib /usr/lib /usr/local/lib"

on this platform (at least /usr/bin/libtool has this)

which is surely wrong, since this is a libdir=/usr/lib64 platform?

For my libraries built using "libtool --mode=link ... -rpath $libdir ..."
no other platform is adding an RPATH during relinking except ppc64.

Has the wrong libtool got installed in the buildroot or something?

This is going to be a swine to work around.

Comment 1 Joe Orton 2003-10-24 10:55:26 UTC
As mentioned in bug 98616, and it happens when linking not just relinking:

  # Find out which ABI we are using (multilib Linux x86_64 hack).
  case "$host_cpu" in
  x86_64*|s390x*)   ### what no ppc64?

Can you fix this for Fedora?

Comment 2 Joe Orton 2003-10-24 11:12:20 UTC
The line needs to be


not ppc64*, confusingly.

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2003-10-28 14:13:59 UTC
Should get fixed in libtool-1.5-8.  Thanks :)

Comment 4 Joe Orton 2003-11-27 10:51:29 UTC
Looks good to me, thanks Jens.
