Comment 2 Joe Orton 2001-02-21 17:25:11 UTC
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
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 21:11:11 UTC
Yeah, correct fix is adding a 'db3-config' script to DB3, we're agreed there. :)
