Description Christoph Brill (egore) (RESIGNED) 2006-04-02 15:18:00 UTC
glib-2.10.1 depends on libdl (using dlerror, dlopen, etc.) but does not state that in the .pc files. The attached patch should fix that, though my knowledge of autotools sucks and I cannot tell if it's the best way how I did it.

I am using dev-libs/glib-2.10.1-r1 and am not experiencing any problems with --as-needed. Could you give that version a whirl?
Comment 3 Andreas Arens 2006-05-07 03:31:56 UTC
Please fix this ASAP.
The lack of -ldl just made both pango-1.12.2 and gtk+2.8.17 emerges fail.
I've add "-ldl " to glib-2.0.pc by hand, which made both emerges work,
but that's not the real solution.

Comment 5 TGL 2006-05-07 13:43:08 UTC
No such problem here (binutils-2.16.92, LDFLAGS="-Wl,-O1 -Wl,--as-needed -Wl,--sort-common") with dev-libs/glib-2.10.2, and building latest gtk+ and pango on top of it. 

You can chcek that libdl is linked where it is used in glib2 by running the following command:
  for f in $(equery files =glib-2* | grep '.so$') ; do \
    echo $f ; ldd -r $f ; done
If you get some "unresolved symbol: dlsomething" messages, then yes, something is broken in your glib (which doesn't mean adding -ldl to the .pc file would be a right fix though). But here, everything is fine. Maybe a problem with your binutils version?
Comment 6 Daniel Gryniewicz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-07 19:42:37 UTC
Builds fine for me, too.  glib-2.10.2 and binutils-2.16.92.  I'm going to mark this fixed, please re-open if it's still a problem.
