Porting software from other OS's to netbsd makes me sometimes spend a lot
of time. Apart from the fact that its poor POSIX compliant the problems
arise when i have to patch original include files.
what makes you say this ? what about netbsd is "poor POSIX compliant" ?
what header files do you need to patch, and why ?
My question is: How does netbsd treat shared libs and if it differs
significantly from other unixes ?
i'm not sure i can answer this without knowing exactly what you're
trying to do -- well, i could spent a few hours detailing everything
i know about netbsd shared lirbaries, and how they differ from all
other shared library implmentations i'm aware of... :-)
netbsd shared libraries are very similar to sunos4 style shared
And could anyone give more detailed way how to make shared lib
look in /usr/share/mk/bsd.lib.mk to see how the system builds shared
afaik : # ld -Bshareable -o libfoo.so.x.x $(OBJFILES.o compiled with
-fpic) -l(any libs needed here)
you also need -Bforcearchive.
i hope this help,
