A quick one before I get some sleep.
On the pmax, the shared libraries for ncurses are not getting built
properly. Currenly (using libpanel as an example), it uses:
ld -Bshareable -o ../lib/libpanel.so.3.4 ../obj_s/panel.o
and this fails badly at link time. Using (by hand):
ld -x -shared -soname libpanel.so.3 -o ../lib/libpanel.so.3.4 /usr/lib/crtbeginS.o ../objects/panel.o /usr/lib/crtendS.o
works fine. This is with the 1.4 tagged pkgsrc and not -current.
I'd appreciate it if someone who knows the right magic and is more awake
than me could look into this...
