pkg/40995: libnids needs glib and gthread
>Synopsis: libnids needs glib and gthread
>Arrival-Date: Wed Mar 11 12:50:00 +0000 2009

System: NetBSD 5.99.7 i386
The net/libnids package installs only a static library.
Programs that link against ilbnids need
-lnids -lglib-2.0 -lghtread-2.0
but there appears to be no mechanism for informing such programs
of that fact.
For example, the security/dsniff-nox11 package won't build,
complaining about several undefined symbols that are referenced
by libnids, and provided by libglib02.0 and libghtread-2.0.
Try to build security/dsniff-nox11
Unknown. Perhaps convert libnids to use libtool and to provide
a shared library with appropriate dependency information?
A workaround is to patch the Makefile in
security/dsniff-nox11/work/dsniff-2.3/Makefile (after "make
configure" has created the Makefile, but before proceeding to
the rest of the build), changing the LIBNIDS line to:
NIDSLIB = -L/usr/pkg/lib -lnids -lglib-2.0 -lgthread-2.0
However, this is clearly the wrong solution, since it would have
to be integrated into the configure script and repeated for
every package that uses libnids.
