Possible bug in the configure script?

Post by Pajarico » 19 Apr 2005, 17:39

Hi all,
Im' running amd64 + gentoo, and the configure script only detects guichan if I compile it from source manually.
When i do that the libs are installed under /usr/local/lib

If use the ebuild the libs seems to compile just fine and are installed under /usr/lib64, but they aren't detected.

/usr/lib64 is a symlink to /usr/lib.

:wink:

I think you just need to check closer your system setup and environment. There should be anything in the generated configure script related to those locations.

This the part with references to guichan:

I could look into it but I just don't understand it.

Well that's generated code which anybody would have a hard time understanding. :-) The idea is that it uses a minimal source file containing a certain function from Guichan and then tries to compile and link it, checking if any error occurs. It should work for Guichan 0.3.0, it won't for any older version.

There's not much we can do about it because all we did was specify the following check in configure.ac:

AC_CHECK_LIB([guichan], [gcnGuichanVersion], ,
AC_MSG_ERROR([ *** Unable to find Guichan library (guichan.sf.net)]))

If you think nothing is wrong with your environment, you can try taking out the check completely and cross your fingers while you run make. Probably better is to check config.log to find out why ./configure fails on this test.
