gettext-tools configure error -
I am trying to upgrade a pkgsrc tree and am running info a configure error in devel/gettext-tools (details below). I searched the archives and saw some chatter about it, but either the stuff I found doesn't apply, or I don't understand the issue well enough to know that I am staring at the answer ( my apologies if this is the case ... :/ ) Same for the few results that Google turned up.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Currently, I am somewhat stuck ...
Here are the gory details:
Host: Red Hat Enterprise Workstation 4 Release 6 (RHEL4u6)
pkgsrc metadata as of 1/2/2008
says: PREFER_PKGSRC=yes (take pkgsrc over host for all dependencies where possible)
and there are no package specific overrides of this global setting
Here's the configure error:
===> Configuring for
checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
configure: error: /bin/sh './configure' failed for autoconf-lib-link
*** Error code 1
And the pertinent (AFAIK) stuff from src/gettext-tools/work/gettext-0.14.6/autoconf-lib-link/config.log:
configure:2292: checking for C compiler default output file name

configure:2337: error: C compiler cannot create executables
As near as I can tell, locale_charset should come from
$LOCALBASE/lib/libcharset.so (which is there, and has a symbol "locale_charset" in it)
but for some reason, libintl.so doesn't say that it needs libcharset.so (per ldd/readelf output). -lcharset is not on the link command line for this test app, so of course, this test program fails.
Is this a known issue, am I missing a patch, etc?
Rather than fixing this in gettext-tools, I'm thinking libintl.so (from devel/gettext-lib package) got built incorrectly and should list libcharset.so as a NEEDED shared library, so that client apps don't need to know to include -lcharset on their linker lines. I grepped around in gettext-lib but didn't see any settings for this ...
How/where would I fix this? Or is there a better place to fix it? Or am I all washed up?
If anyone can send a patch or give me a hint on how/where to fix this, it would be greatly appreciated.
