I'm trying to build netpbm-10.30, and it falls down when trying to build
"pnmtorle" in work/netpbm-10.30/convertor/other - but the thing that
confuses me is that the error is a linker error, stating:
ld32: ERROR 33 : Unresolved text symbol "pm_error" -- 1st referenced by
Use linker option -v to see when and which objects, archives and
dsos are loaded.
... and if you check librle.a with nm, then pm_error is indeed an
[Index] Value Size Type Bind Other Shndx Name
 | 0| 0|FUNC |GLOB |DEFAULT |UNDEF |pm_error
pm_error() seems to only be defined in lib/libpm.c - and can't be pulled
fom here into urt, since it relies on a couple of run-time variables
pm_progname and pm_jmpbufP.
So it looks as if urt/librle.a needs to be linked against lib/libnetpbm.so
- but how is this achieved, and if this linkage is missing how has the
package ever compiled?
P.S. The urt/README file states that if urt is already installed, then
this can be used instead of netpbm's cut-down version - yet the
graphics/urt package depends on netpbm. Are the dependancies here
