Description Rex Dieter 2006-05-13 14:03:29 EDT
apps that use libtool building against current devel's guile-devel will fail
linking with error:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lltdl

This is due to guile-devel's inclusion of libguile.la containing a reference to

Possible fixes:
1.  (preferred) Follow Packaging Guidelines recommendation to omit/remove
%{_libdir}/lib*.la files from packaging  (while you're at it, you can omit
static libs as well, provided no other pkg in Core uses libguile.a).
2.  Add to -devel
Requires: libtool-ltdl-devel
Comment 1 Miroslav Lichvar 2006-05-16 09:35:47 EDT
Ok, thanks. Fixed in guile-1.8.0-3.
Comment 2 Eric Tanguy 2006-05-18 02:00:16 EDT
I tried building drgeo from extras in mock devel as guile-1.8.0-3 is out and the
building still fails with the same error : 
g++ -O2 -g -pipe -Wall -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fexceptions -fstack-protector
--param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -m32 -march=i386 -mtune=generic

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2006-05-18 07:26:19 EDT
Eric, your problem seems different, as your link stage is explicitly listing
-lltdl for some reason.  Find where the -lltdl is coming from...
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2006-05-18 07:32:19 EDT
Problem is in guile-config --libs returning: -lguile -lltdl
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2006-05-18 07:34:11 EDT
Sorry, it's 'guile-config link'.  It's different than most other *-config
scripts I've seen. (:
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2006-05-18 07:37:36 EDT
Miroslav, it's your call what's easier for you:
1.  apply patch to remove hard-coded -lltdl from guile-config
2.  Add to -devel: Requires: libtool-ltdl-devel

patch forthcoming.
