Description Pierre Ossman 2005-10-13 14:50:15 UTC
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 16:42:28 UTC
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 19:06:22 UTC
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 19:26:11 UTC
There is no such "general consensus" with regard to libtool archives.
But yes, in many cases they only cause problems and are not needed.
