Maintainer prefers separate bugzilla entries so this is not such a patch bonanza
after all. :)

Mmm, thanks for diddling libtool on all platforms.

FWIW, I think the test for -lthread et al is bad craziness, as the issue of what
locking scheme
to use is a db3 configuration problem that simply cannot be solved without
compiling
test code and checking for working lock functionality against the installed db3
library, sniffing
for symbols in libraries is naive. It's a good thing I don't have to support
these platforms, yet :-)

Adding misc.c compatibility stuff to stubs.c will "work", but is also bad
craziness, mine, not yours.

Thanks for the patch, checked in on the rpm-4.0.2 branch, on top of stack
shortly, will be in
rpm-4.0.2 final.
Comment 5 Joe Orton 2001-02-21 16:11:11 EST
Yeah, correct fix is adding a 'db3-config' script to DB3, we're agreed there. :)
