FW: Autoconf 2.5/Libtool 1.4 problem...

Hi,

This appeared on the apr list, and it seemed appropiate to
forward it since subversion is trying to upgrade to this
very combination.

Mo, Greg, you want to investigate this further?

Subject: Autoconf 2.5/Libtool 1.4 problem...

On my Mandrake-based systems (seen on 7.2 and Cooker), libtool 1.4
and autoconf 2.52 (reproducable with the stock gnu.org versions)
interact to cause shared libraries not to work. I haven't been
able to find out exactly what the cause is here. (I'll attempt to
dig in more as time allows...)

With libtool 1.4, this results in a non-buildable tree (as it
tries to use -soname which is not supported by gcc). Libtool
1.4.2 is a bit better, but refuses to build shared libraries at
*all* (but the tree is buildable - we'll just *silently* ignore
any requests for shared libraries - which is bad).

The kicker here is that this problem doesn't occur with autoconf
2.13/libtool 1.4 or autconf 2.52/libtool 1.3.3 (libtool complains
about an unexpected = in this combination, but builds okay). I
just tested with autoconf 2.50/libtool 1.4.2 and this combination
looks broken too.

Can anyone else reproduce this? Should we force buildconf to forbid
this combination (autoconf 2.50+ and libtool 1.4+)? -- justin
