cwrappers ld transform problem


another problem with cwrappers under non-default circumstances. This one
shows in graphics/glew, which explicitly uses ld explicitly for linking,
not using gcc to pass through to ld:

    pkgsrc root@pkgsrc-debtesting:/opt/pkgsrc/work/pkgsrc/graphics/glew/default/glew-1.13.0 > grep -n -B 2 -w LD Makefile
    119-lib/$(LIB.SHARED): $(LIB.SOBJS)
    120:    $(LD) $(LDFLAGS) $(LDFLAGS.SO) -o $@ $^ $(LIB.LDFLAGS) $(LIB.LIBS)
    167-lib/$(LIB.SHARED.MX): $(LIB.SOBJS.MX)
    168:    $(LD) $(LDFLAGS) $(LDFLAGS.SO.MX) -o $@ $^ $(LIB.LDFLAGS) $(LIB.LIBS)

My non-default setting in mk/compiler/

    _LINKER_RPATH_FLAG=    --enable-new-dtags -R
    _COMPILER_RPATH_FLAG=  -Wl,${_LINKER_RPATH_FLAG:Q:C/([\\] )([\\] )*/,/g}

instead of


This modification allows building e.g. minor python2.7 updates from
pkgsrc where libpython2.7 from pkgsrc is already installed. Without this
modification, "-R" forces the build process to link against previously
installed, no longer matching /opt/pkgsrc/lib/, in spite
of LD_LIBRARY_PATH pointing to the current build directory. That is a
quirk in Linux ldd/glibc, see

Shell wrappers correctly transform
    --enable-new-dtags -R/opt/pkgsrc/lib
for ld invocation.

cwrapper does no such transform for ld, leading to this error message:

Since the variable name _COMPILER_RPATH_FLAG indicates it is to be used
for compiler (i.e. gcc) invocation, it might as well be a mistake in
glew configure or Makefile to use it as linker flags.

Not sure if it is really cwrappers fault. Shell wrappers might just be
generously covering over a wrong use of -Wl as an ld arg.
