# revdep-rebuild

[ 39% ]  *   broken /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/5.3.0/ (requires -lpsapi)

While I see all libraries at /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/5.3.0 to be pbe and not native, so I believe this should be excluded.

In this case the change in 5.3.0 is that libvtv is linked against psapi.

2015-01-28  Caroline Tice  <>

        * libvtv/ : Include windows.h, winternl.h and psapi.h, skip
        include of execinfo.h, sys/mman.h and link.h on Cygwin and MinGW.  Add
        port of __fortify_fail on Cygwin and MinGW.  Change ElfW (Addr) to
        uintptr_t on Cygwin and MinGW.

What I find strange is that objdump of /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/5.3.0/libvtv-0.dll I see no imports from psapi.dll, while in sources I do see calls. but this is a different story.

pretty sure this applies to all non-ELF formats.  if revdep-rebuild can't parse dll's, it should just skip them right ?

It parses the .la file :)
