*** Bug 250872 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 3 Kevin Pyle 2009-01-04 06:54:37 UTC
This was caused by a very strange invocation of gcc when trying to build a library. The rule passed "-Wl,-soX11.so". This was parsed as the linker option -s, to strip the file, and the linker option -o, to name the file X11.so. This rule also ignored user $LDFLAGS. I will attach a patch to fix both issues. This whole area should be revisited and reworked to use libtool, but that is beyond the scope of this bug.

Thanks for your patch Kevin, I've included it in the patchset for ghostscript-gpl-8.63-r1. Would be great if you could send your patch upstream since they're planning a new release for February.
Comment 6 Timo Gurr (RETIRED) 2009-02-13 19:03:16 UTC
I've sent your patch upstream. I hope you don't mind. See URL.
Comment 7 Kevin Pyle 2009-02-14 18:00:19 UTC
Not at all. I'm not the reporter, owner, or QA contact for the bug, and I didn't CC myself when I posted the patch, so I didn't get notified about your comments. I only noticed this one because I was checking up on old patches to see which got merged.
