[PATCH] neon.m4

From: Garrett Rooney <rooneg_at_electricjellyfish.net>
Date: 2002-03-11 00:41:43 CET

So after a bit of discussion about it on the FreeBSD mailing lists,
I'd like to propose this patch to neon.m4, to keep us from trying to
use libneon.la when building with neon outside the tree.

FreeBSD has a policy (which I was unaware of up until today), of not
installing the .la files for ports, since they feel that applications
trying to link against a library should just be using '-lneon', rather
than trying to use the .la file.

I don't feet stronly about this one way or the other (I mean hell,
it's just one little text file), but others seem to, and it doesn't
seem like we lose anything by just using -lneon, and we gain the
ability to be able to build when that file (for whatever reason) is
not installed.

I'd also just like some feedback on the patch itself, since my
autoconf skills are sorely lacking, and I'm not 100% sure this is
completely correct. It passed the 'works for me' test, but that's
about it.
