Description Joe Orton 2004-11-27 10:11:26 UTC
Description of problem:
The sys_lib_search_path_spec in /usr/bin/libtool references the wrong
version of GCC.

This seems to mean at least that it can't build shared C++ libraries.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gcc-3.4.3-3.EL4
libtool-1.5.6-4

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
$ echo 'void foo(void) {}' > foo.cpp
$ /usr/bin/libtool --mode=compile --tag=CXX g++ -c foo.cpp
 g++ -c foo.cpp  -fPIC -DPIC -o .libs/foo.o
 g++ -c foo.cpp -o foo.o >/dev/null 2>&1
$ /usr/bin/libtool --mode=link --tag=CXX g++ -o libfoo.la -rpath
/usr/lib foo.lo
g++ -shared -nostdlib
/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.1/../../../crti.o
/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.1/crtbeginS.o  .libs/foo.o 
-L/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.1
-L/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.1/../../.. -lstdc++ -lm -lc
-lgcc_s /usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.1/crtendS.o
/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.1/../../../crtn.o  -Wl,-soname
-Wl,libfoo.so.0 -o .libs/libfoo.so.0.0.0
g++: /usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.1/../../../crti.o: No such
file or directory
g++: /usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.1/crtbeginS.o: No such file or
directoryg++: /usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.1/crtendS.o: No such
file or directory
g++: /usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/3.4.1/../../../crtn.o: No such
file or directory

Mitigating circumstances:
Usually libtool is used by creating a new libtool script not the
pre-built one, it's only the pre-built one which suffers from this issue.

Recommend to just rebuild libtool-1.5.6 for RHEL4.

Can you release a rebuilt rpm fixing this problem for FC3 ?
I have an application that compiles in other distributions but not in FC3.

Thanks,

I think that this issue is connected with Bug 138742, that has also problems in
the sys_lib_search_path_spec variable in the generated libtool.

At least I get the same errors when trying to compile packages in RHEL 4 in x86_64:

/usr/lib/libpopt.so: could not read symbols: File in wrong format

I haven't been able to install the binary packages from Rawhide in RHEL, neither
to build the source packages.

Comment 5 Jay Turner 2005-04-16 17:50:56 UTC
Fix confirmed with libtool-1.5.6-4.EL4.1 which will be released as part of
RHBA-2005:234.  Moving to PROD_READY.
