Description Marcel Nijenhof 2004-07-28 18:05:49 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
If i run net-snmp-config i get:
  # ./usr/bin/net-snmp-config --libs
  -L/usr/lib -lnetsnmp -lcrypto -lelf -lm

I tryed to compile libfwbuilder which refused to compile with snmp
support because it couldn't use the libelf.

  I have changed "/usr/bin/net-snmp-config" so that it didn't output
  "-lelf" and i was able to compile fwbuilder 2 with snmp support.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "/usr/bin/net-snmp-config" and see that it shows -lelf
2. Run the "./configure" from libfwbuilder and see that it refuses to
   compile with snmp support.
3. Check the config.log

  I don't have "elfutils-libelf-devel" installed but this isn't a
  dependcy so it should work. And i don't no if that solves te

Actual Results:  [root@dame libfwbuilder-2.0.0]# ./configure
Support for SNMP queries  :                              NO

The config.log says:
configure:6209: gcc -o conftest -g -O2   conftest.c -lnetsnmp
-L/usr/lib -lnetsnmp -lcrypto -lelf -lm -lcrypto  >&5
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lelf

Expected Results:  It should have compiled libfwbuilder with snmp
support. After my patch
as described in "Additional Information":

Support for SNMP queries  :                              YES
    Using ucd_snmp library :                             NO
    Using net_snmp library :                             YES

Additional info:

I have changed "net-snmp-config" so that it doesn't tell to use libelf
after which it worked.

The diference:

# diff /usr/bin/net-snmp-config.org /usr/bin/net-snmp-config
< NSC_LIBS="-lcrypto -lelf -lm "
< NSC_AGENTLIBS="-ldl -lrpm -lrpmio -lpopt  -lbz2 -lz -lcrypto -lelf -lm "
> NSC_LIBS="-lcrypto -lm "
> NSC_AGENTLIBS="-ldl -lrpm -lrpmio -lpopt  -lbz2 -lz -lcrypto -lm "
