: How does this handle .so's in $DESTDIR/lib?
It's fine, insofar that NetBSD ld(1) doesn't automatically create an rpath
from a -L option. If any base system libraries are interdependent (was
linked with -lfoo), then it may need -rpath-link at link time, but most of
the base libraries have to be specified explicitly so this should be OK.
: Also note, that symlinks from $DESTDIR/usr/lib are absolute symlinks to
: /lib, which is probably now what you wnat on your host machine.
Eh!? I guess I haven't paid much attention to -current lately. All of
/usr/lib moved to /lib? (If so, then the symlink should probably be
"../lib", not "/lib".)
apparently it's faster to use /lib than ../../lib (not all of /lib moved).
i'd prefer the /usr/lib symlinks to /lib used relative symlinks, as this
problem has caused multiple issues for multiple people...
it's "easily" solved by putting -L$DESTDIR/lib before -L$DESTDIR/usr/lib.
