danw@blorple:vte> rpm -q freetype-devel
danw@blorple:vte> freetype-config --libs
-L/usr/lib64 -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/lib64 -lfreetype -lz

The "don't output libdir if it's -L/usr/lib" hack needs to be
updated to know about lib64
Comment 1 Owen Taylor 2004-11-15 14:25:14 EST
Mailed upstream:


Assuming nobody objects, I'll commit upstream and put in our package
in a few days.
Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2004-11-16 08:03:50 EST
Fixed upstream.

        * builds/unix/freetype-config.in: Supress -L$libdir for
        /usr/lib64 as well as /usr/lib. (Reported by Dan Winship -
Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2005-08-13 02:15:07 EDT
I assume this also removes the horrible -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/lib64 ?
That is just so wrong!

I was trying to test an alternative build of Mesa, using LD_LIBRARY_PATH to make
ppracer use the alternative build, but it got ignored by ld.so because of rpath,
which took me 2 hours to find out and workaround!

AFAIK, Rawhide already contains fixed to that effect (comment #3) -- can we get
them into FC4 as well?
Comment 5 Nils Philippsen 2005-11-21 12:16:07 EST
Bumping product version.

The actual rawhide fix for the rpath problems was in Bug 160247

And Carl, just fyi: 173818 and 173819 bugs depend on this or need ugly
workarounds to avoid rpath problems. 
Comment 7 Benjamin Smedberg 2006-07-23 18:29:51 EDT
What is the RPM version that contains this fix? I can't seem to find it, FC5 has
this bug, and it's going to start biting Mozilla packages before too long.
Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2006-11-27 01:12:44 EST
Benjamin, are you seeing the rpath output with the FC5 version of 
freetype-config ? 
The FC5 package definitively has the changes mentioned by Owen.
Comment 9 Benjamin Smedberg 2006-12-21 16:13:17 EST
Sorry, got confused: FC4 is broken and FC5 is fixed.
Comment 10 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 06:20:15 EST
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 11 petrosyan 2008-02-14 12:23:05 EST
This bug seems to have been fixed in Fedora Core 5.

Fedora Core 4 is not maintained anymore.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
