ld finding the wrong library
I've just tracked down why I've been failing to build xinit.
The link command used is:
--sysroot=/bsd/current/dest_amd64 -Wl,-rpath,/usr/X11R7/lib -L=/usr/X11R7/lib
-o xinput buttonmap.o feedback.o list.o property.o setint.o setmode.o
setptr.o state.o test.o xinput.o -lXi -lm
and I get an error because XESetWireToEventCookie is undefined.
XESetWireToEventCookie() is referenced in libXi.so and should be
defined by libX11.so
However since there is no -lX11 (or a direct reference to libX11.so)
libX11.so is looked for because of the NEEDED entry in libXi.so.
However libXi.so has an RPATH entry for /usr/X11R7/lib, and the linker
is looking there first.
On my system the installed libX11.so is dated from late 2009 and doesn't
have XESetWireToEventCookie - so the link fails.
Maybe the --sysroot should affect this - but it doesn't.
I've also noticed that ld is adding a NEEDED entry for libX11.so into
the xinput program - surely this is wrong.
I've changed the Makefile for xinput to explicitly specify -lX11
to make the build not reference installed libraries.
