Thanks for the lead.
I tried to make a couple, but received:
libtool: link: `/usr/lib/libpthread.la' is not a valid libtool archive
But I am not sure of the format. Doing a search for the file on the net
didn't help. I did find one that I extracted from an RPM which I also
tried to base mine on.
I did look at a few examples of different libtool archives and at the
libpthread.la on a NetBSD box.
I have a share/libtool/ltmain.sh tool as installed from
Can anyone point me documentation on fixing this?
Can anyone provide a working libpthread.la for my system?
Why would my system be missing it? (It was Debian Linux; the Debian
packages do not provide any libpthread.la file, but they do provide
libpthread.so and libpthread.a.)
The files I have are:
/usr/lib/libpthread.la (I created this .la)
This pthread was installed when I built and installed glibc 2.2.5 (back in
November.) I have built bind9 since then, so I am not sure what changed
between then and now. I have my build and install logs and I never had a
libpthread.la before. (I guess maybe something changed with the
buildlink2, but I don't know.)
One libpthread.la that I tried follows:
library_names='libpthread-0.9.so libpthread.so.0 libpthread.so'
