Unfortunately it is impossible for guile to link against the qthreads library
due to a selinux policy issue. The library is marked correctly as requiring
executable stack.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2006-02-03 10:11:48 EST
The library needs executable stack or is built with executable stack?

Does execstack -c LIBRARY fix the problem?
Comment 3 Miroslav Lichvar 2006-02-06 09:53:19 EST
Yes, execstack -c fixes it, thanks for the hint. There is an assembly source
without the GNU-stack section, so I passed --noexecstack option to the assembler.
