Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 458631
Setkey is unnecessarily linked to libcrypto and other libraries
Last modified: 2009-01-20 17:13:33 EST
Setkey and some other binaries in ipsec-tools are unnecessarily linked to libcrypto and other libraries (gssapi, krb5 and so on). Only racoon needs to be linked to these libraries.
This problem was fixed in RHEL-4 by adding -Wl,--as-needed to LDFLAGS but unfortunately although the patch is still applied the change is overwritten by autoconf run. So this is a regression against RHEL-4.
This bugzilla has Keywords: Regression.
Since no regressions are allowed between releases,
it is also being proposed as a blocker for this release.
Please resolve ASAP.
