It is unlikely that the libtool change was related to that, and if it
was, it would be the other way round. The libtool change was supposed to
allow working around similar bugs that cannot be easily fixed in the
Thats what -mimpure-text does, it prevents gcc from adding -z text to
the linker arguments. Of course that is pretty much useless if libtool
adds -z text, too, Which is useless in itself as it is the default
But I think doing that here could be wrong. I have only taken a quick
look at the bug, and I would suspect a ndbm to be at fault. It's just a
