Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-14 17:42:06 UTC
If you check the -fbsd patch you can easily see that libraries used for linking the tests are passed through _LDFLAGS. This is probably caused by automake hissing about "--libs" that should be passed through _LDFLAGS rather than _LDFLAGS.

Both are wrong. The configure script should use PKG_CHECK_MODULES for glib-2.0 and then the variables read there should be used in the

As it is it will break with --as-needed.

It actually builds fine with --as-needed.

I'm sure there's something wrong with this bit ;)

Uh yeah that was meant to be _LIBS :P

As for building with --as-needed, as long as libtool reorders the parameters sure it works... I'm bypassing libtool though by forcing it in the specs.

fixed in 2.0.7 bump. Please reopen if there is still a problem.
