> Hello.
> I'm trying to fix alternate rpm location in rpm2html configure script, and
> Daniel just told me you were better suited to answer my questions :-)
> I made --with-rpm options checks happening earlier than rpm libs checking,
> and added $RPM_LIBS variable to AC_CHECK_LIB as 5th argument, stated as
> OTHER_LIBS in autoconf info page.
> AC_CHECK_LIB(rpmio, Fopen,
>   [LIBS="-lrpmio $LIBS";
>   ], , $RPM_LIBS)
> This one is OK
> AC_CHECK_LIB(rpmdb, rpmdbOpen, [LIBS="-lrpm -lrpmdb $LIBS"],
>   AC_CHECK_LIB(rpm, rpmReadConfigFiles, [LIBS="-lrpm $LIBS"],
>     AC_MSG_ERROR(*** librpm not found), $RPM_LIBS
>   ), -lrpm $RPM_LIBS
> )
> This one is not :-(
> First check (rpmdb) is OK, but then it check for rpm and fails, whereas
> 1) rpm check should not happen at all, as it is 4th argument (IF-NOT-FOUND in
> autoconf info page) of first check
> 2) i also added $RPM_LIBS as 5th argument of this check
> Here is output:
> [...]
> checking for Fopen in -lrpmio... yes
> checking for rpmdbOpen in -lrpmdb... yes
> checking for rpmReadConfigFiles in -lrpm... no
> If you have any logical explanation, i'd be happy :-)

Do we care ? I'm tempted to CLOSE/WONTFIX this ...

rpm2html C codebase is dead, this won't get fixed,
