Built xemacs with PKG_OPTIONS.xemacs=-canna. Everything is fine, until the final link end with:
Undefined first referenced
symbol in file
ber_pvt_opt_on eldap.o (symbol belongs to implicit dependency /usr/local/lib/liblber-2.2.so.7)
ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to temacs
liblber is a library that comes with openldap. The configure script suggests that xemacs needs liblber solely for this symbol and can't do without it.
Build xemacs without PKG_OPTIONS.xemacs=ldap
Set PKG_OPTIONS.xemacs=ldap -canna in my case, and the link and thus the build works fine. I suggest making this option mandatory or at least the default.
