Hi, Currently at least some of the X.Org DRI modules are broken because they lack a bunch of code. The way they're built by the Mesa package, a convenience library is built and every modules link against that .a. I reproduce that in my source tree, using LIBISPRIVATE. But there's a catch: as that helper library is ultimately used by shared objects, I need it to be PIC. I came up with the following patch, which is gross but I think the stench is not too bad. Comments on it? http://vert-toit.net/~cube/libpic.diff I guess we could build a shared library and make the DRI modules link to it at run time, but: 1. That would mean do things very differently from the original package, which might not be the best idea, especially when you consider it's Mesa, a very special piece of code (you, *that* meaning of "special"). 2. I won't be bothered enough to do it that way, so if one of you really feels it has to be done that way, s/he will have to do it. Alternatively, I welcome ideas as for building the lib normally, but without the non-PIC parts (i.e., building the .so files [per bsd.lib.mk naming convention] and the _pic.a, but not the .o files and the .a). (That would probably be useful for "our" long term plan to completely de-support static linking.
