I've been having some terrible problems compiling various packages,
appartently due to some kind of buildlink/libstdc++ problems.
This is on Slackware.
Either the build will fail at some point because it can't find
<package>/work/.buildlink/lib/libstdc++.la or there are really verbose
"undefined reference" warnings or both.
Is there some secret to get buildlink and libstdc++ to play nice?
I'm trying to get meta-pkgs/kde3 built for Linux and it doesn't get very
far. I've been able to get qt3-libs and qt3-tools to build. I'm not sure
I can trust these builds, however, because of some "undefined reference"
warnings. There's no testing either, because arts won't build for the
These slackware packages are installed...
$ ls /var/adm/packages|grep gcc
... I kind of expected those to handle these issues. It seems that
sometimes buildlink is able to make itself aware of libstdc++.la and
sometimes it isn't, perhaps depending on the package.
For some reason, though these problems don't exist on NetBSD, so I don't
believe I can blame buildlink.
It would appear that I'm missing something important to get things
working smoothly on Linux. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
