Description Pierre Ossman 2005-10-13 10:50:15 EDT
The synce-devel package isn't stripped of .la files. This causes havoc when
trying to link applications to synce.
Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2005-10-13 12:42:28 EDT
The initial bug report is misleading. The truth is that the libtool
archives contain _broken content_ (buildroot paths inside the dependencies)
and hence cause problems.
Comment 2 Pierre Ossman 2005-10-13 15:06:22 EDT
Actually, the big problem was that they caused libtool to add -lmimedir. I could
not find this lib anywhere in FC and removing the .la files showed that it was
also completely unnecessary.

I thought the general consesus was that *.la should be removed from all packages
because the cause more problems than they solve?
Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2005-10-13 15:26:11 EDT
There is no such "general consensus" with regard to libtool archives.
But yes, in many cases they only cause problems and are not needed.

Comment 5 Andreas Bierfert 2005-11-28 15:52:17 EST
