Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-09-20 11:32:17 UTC
I'm reporting this bug because the package in summary fails to build when forcing --as-needed on through spec files (check out for details).

Please note that this bug _might_ apply to -Wl,--as-needed in LDFLAGS as well; in both cases it should be fixed. Also, if this is due to the package in question not respecting user-defined LDFLAGS, you should get to fix that too.

Check the attached build log.

That was due to a really strange build system interaction...
Fixed in CVS. Thanks for the report.
Comment 3 Kacper Kowalik (Xarthisius) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-09-20 18:59:14 UTC
It's not fixed. In Jamtop you need to append libraries to LINKLIBS instead of LINKFLAGS. Reopening...
Comment 4 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2010-09-20 20:04:07 UTC
Grr, must have tested this in a shell with the wrong compiler.

Via misuse of the Jam rules, the build system of this package _prepends_ all the shared libraries in the list of objects to be linked. No wonder it fails with forced as-needed.

Added the libs once more at the end of the list. Ugly, but it works now...
