Description Jonathan Kamens 2004-01-15 15:04:36 UTC
It appears that /usr/lib/libdb-4.2.a in db4-devel-4.2.52-1 contains 
libtool .lo files instead of object files, thus making it useless.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2004-01-16 02:06:25 UTC
Quite possibly, automake-1.8 has changed conventions incompatibly.

Even so, you are unlikely to have much joy linking statically
with a library that uses nptl. I tried -- hard -- in rpm
and failed miserably. I doubt you will do much better.

No way this is high severity. Yes it will be fixed.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2004-01-20 01:20:08 UTC
Fixed in db4-4.2.52-2. Thanks for noticing.
