Description Patrice Dumas 2006-11-07 17:38:51 EST
Description of problem:

pkg-config --libs --static should take into account Requires.static
recursively. For example if one have, in the .pc file 

Libs: -L${libdir} -ltests
Requires.private: x11

One get:
$ pkg-config --static --libs tests
-ltests -lX11 -lpthread

While, there is
$ pkg-config --static --libs x11
-lX11 -lpthread -lXau -lXdmcp

One should have
$ pkg-config --static --libs tests
-ltests -lX11 -lpthread -lXau -lXdmcp

in the x11.pc there is
Requires.private: xau xdmcp
Libs.private: -lpthread

so -lpthread is taken into account, while Requires.private are
not taken into account.

True, but do we want to encourage static linking by fixing this ?
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2007-01-24 10:12:28 EST
It's the opposite, imo.  dynamic linking is harmed/influenced by
static-link-only bits in .pc files (without the patch)
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-01-24 10:13:13 EST
oops, ignore me, brain still stuck on last bug submitted wrt pkg-config. (:
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2007-01-24 10:17:59 EST
Seems to be reported upstream:
with (unverified) patch.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2007-03-30 01:43:38 EDT
