Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-29 17:40:59 UTC
This smells like the setjmp/longjmp stuff in glibc we dealt with
before.  We need to verify that our patch to setjmp/longjmp
survived the move to glibc 2.1, or alternatively that equivalent
functionality was included in glibc 2.1

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-04-09 17:35:59 UTC
Fixed in linuxconf-1.14r4 -- linuxconf was making shared libraries
out of code that was not compiled -fPIC.  It's a bug on the sparc
that not compiling -fPIC broke it, but it was also a bug in linuxconf
not to compile -fPIC...
