Description Florent Le Coz 2012-06-14 23:17:08 EDT
When trying to compile some c++ code linked with the boost_locale library, it fails with the following error:

% cat test.cpp
int main() { return 0; }          
% g++ test.cpp -lboost_locale -o test 
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.7.0/../../../../lib64/libboost_locale.so: undefined reference to `boost::locale::impl_icu::create_localization_backend()'  
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.7.0/../../../../lib64/libboost_locale.so: undefined reference to `boost::locale::impl_posix::create_localization_backend()'
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.7.0/../../../../lib64/libboost_locale.so: undefined reference to `boost::locale::impl_win::create_localization_backend()'  
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.7.0/../../../../lib64/libboost_locale.so: undefined reference to `boost::locale::impl_std::create_localization_backend()'  
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status  

It does the same with -lboost_locale-fmt.
Compiling with any other boost library, instead of boost_locale, works as expected.

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

How reproducible:

Actual results:
Does not compile.

Expected results:
Should compile without any error.
Comment 1 Petr Machata 2012-06-21 13:14:19 EDT
It seems like we neglect to include some files when building the locale library.  I think we should also force in -DBOOST_LOCALE_NO_WINAPI_BACKEND.
