Description Joe Orton 2003-01-21 12:15:49 EST
Description of problem:
"pkg-config --libs" output should not include /usr/lib64 on Hammer.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
$ pkg-config --libs libxml-2.0
Actual results:
-L/usr/lib64 -lxml2 -lz -lm

Expected results:
 -lxml2 -lz -lm

Additional info:
A simple and probably naive fix is to pass the expansion of ${libdir} into
config.h, and check against that in pkg.c rather than the hard-coded "/usr/lib".
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-21 12:19:47 EST
Can you remind me why it removes -L/usr/lib? (I don't remember the impact of
this issue.)
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2003-01-21 12:25:00 EST
I think just because it changes the order the library search path unnecessarily:
so if I have "-L/usr/lib64 -L/home/joe/lib -lfoobar" then I might *want* to pick
up -lfoobar out of /home/joe/lib but the /usr/lib64 means I pick up the system
copy instead, if there is one.  It's not a big issue anyway.

Nalin fixed this in 0.14.0-3
