I am trying to use the geography/gdal-lib package for another package
that requires a shared library version, presumably libgdal.so. The
current package seems to install only libgdal.a and libgdal.la.
Consequently, other packages that need this library as a shared
library seem to fail.
I am confused about why this might be. However, from the build log I
see the following when it is building libgdal.a:
*** Warning: linker path does not have real file for library -lcompat.
*** I have the capability to make that library automatically link in when
*** you link to this library. But I can only do this if you have a
*** shared version of the library, which you do not appear to have
*** because I did check the linker path looking for a file starting
*** with libcompat and none of the candidates passed a file format test
*** using a regex pattern. Last file checked: /usr/lib//libcompat.a
*** The inter-library dependencies that have been dropped here will be
*** automatically added whenever a program is linked with this library
*** or is declared to -dlopen it.
*** Since this library must not contain undefined symbols,
*** because either the platform does not support them or
*** it was explicitly requested with -no-undefined,
*** libtool will only create a static version of it.
Could this have anything to do with the problem? Does anyone have
suggestions on how to make the package install a libgdal.so version?
Thanks for your help.
