Description Darryl L. Pierce 2012-06-08 15:24:16 UTC
Description of problem:

There needs to be a reference in the package config file to the architecture-specific directory; i.e., /usr/include/x86_64-linux on 64bit systsems.

When trying to build using cmake, for example, the discovery portion only finds the reference to /usr/include. However, there are header files in /usr/include/x86_64-linux that are necessary but which are not being pointed to by the config file.

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

mcpierce@mcpierce-laptop:~  $ rpm -q ruby-devel

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a cmake project that depends on Ruby.
2. Use the cmake command to generate Makefiles.
3. Use make to build.
Actual results:

The following results, which are due to pkgconfig not telling cmake about the platform-specific header location:

Scanning dependencies of target cqpid_ruby

Expected results:

Compilation to complete successfully.

Hi Daryl,

Would you mind to open upstream bug regarding this issue? It shouldn't be a big deal, since it should be just a simple extension of [1]

Comment 3 Darryl L. Pierce 2012-06-29 20:58:44 UTC
Turns out the problem was not with Ruby's pkgconfig settings but in our CMakeList.txt file. We had a type (RUBY_INCLUDE_DIR instead of RUBY_INCLUDE_DIRS) and weren't using the include_directories($RUBY_INCLUDE_DIRS) directive but instead were explicitly writing the commandline out.
