Description Yaroslav Isakov 2008-03-16 17:15:45 UTC
Hello,recently I delete sys-libs/gpm and found that some libs (media-libs/libsdl and others) have -lgpm in dependency_libs in their .la files. For example I have /usr/lib/mpg123/ from media-sound/mpg123-1.2.0 and it's dependency_libs line says

dependency_libs=' /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ -lslang /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ -ldl -lgpm -lpthread -lm'

I use revdep-rebuild but it doesn't detect this broken dep. I ound in sources of revdep-rebuild that it founds only

/usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

but no -lgpm.

BTW the same happens with many libs/programs depended on libSDL, which depended on aalib which depends on gpm...
