I was rebuilding some software and removed my gettext-lib and libiconv
packages. Many things broke. For some reason, my perl was linked to
libiconv.so.4. And grep to libintl.so.4 and ls to libintl.so.4 and so on.
(Luckily, tar worked so I could easily recover.)
Anyways, I must have built my coreutils with those in my environment so it
got linked that way. (I am using LOCALBASE as /usr.)
I commented out the buildlinks in coreutils and rebuilt it.
Then just for testing, I placed it back to normal and tried to rebuild but
the configure script failed with:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lintl
I noticed that --with-libintl-prefix was defined.
Basically, if GNU_CONFIGURE is yes, then that flag is added.
I think this should be improved some more, but I am not sure where yet.
I have glibc. It provides what I need (for most of libintl and libiconv)
so I don't need to link to those libraries.
I have /usr/include/libintl.h but no libraries (at least right now, but
even if I did I don't want to link to it unless really required).
How is perl and grep and coreutils linked for other non-NetBSD (or glibc)
