Have not had chance to investigate the ld source code yet but I've found two
ways that avoids the error.
For reference, here is the original compilation step that fails:
--sysroot=/usr/src/obj.amd64/destdir.amd64 -o npfctl npfctl.o npf_var.o
npf_data.o npf_ncgen.o npf_build.o npf_extmod.o npf_disassemble.o npf_scan.o
npf_parse.o -lnpf -lprop -lcrypto -lutil -ly
-Wl,-dynamic-linker=/libexec/ld.elf_so -Wl,-rpath,/lib -L=/lib
And the error message is:
/lib/libcrypt.so.1: undefined reference to `__explicit_bzero'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
The reason for the error is that ld uses /lib/libcrypt.so.1 (which is from
NetBSD-current) rather than the netbsd-6 version in
Either of the following two modifications will make ld pick the correct library:
1) Removing the "-Wl,-rpath,/lib" flag makes ld use the correct library
(presumably because ld's default search paths /lib and /use/lib are not
searched without the --sysroot path prefix). Also removing "-L=/lib" is OK
2) Replacing "-Wl,-rpath,/lib" with "-Wl,-rpath,lib" (without the initial /)
similarly causes the /usr/src/obj.amd64/destdir.amd64/lib/libcrypt.so.1 to be
used and avoids the error. Also replacing "-L=/lib "with "-L=lib" is OK. I note
that ld looks for lib/libcrypt.so.1 (in the current directory) before adding
the --sysroot path (from ktrace).
Based on this, it appears that ld only prepends the --sysroot path if the
specified prefix fails, either because the lib file is not found or because it
is the wrong type (as in my i386 cross compilation). This suggests the
following changes to the library paths in the build makefiles:
Remove all -Wl,-rpath,/lib or -L=/lib flags. These are handled by the sysroot
flag in combination with the default search paths.
Replace any non-standards search paths, e.g., "-Wl,-rpath,/usr/mylib" with
PS I'm copying tech-toochain as that seems like the better place for this.
