"-static" linking not available on darwin
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:50 EST
Description of problem:
Mac OS X and Darwin does not allow static linking of binaries
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (on this platform)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use thed default LDFLAGS_STATIC="-all-static"
Created attachment 104775 [details]
Special case LDFLAGS, for the darwin platform
Static linking breaks often enough on linux that
it is hardly "available".
Rather than attempting per-platform LDFLAGS, it's easier
to just disable the only use linking rpmi.
Added to HEAD and rpm-4_4 branches, should be in rpm-4.4.1-0.6 when built.
Thanks for the patch.
