bug#18229: LIBS vs LIBOBJS in src/Makefile.in


From: Reuben Thomas
Subject: bug#18229: LIBS vs LIBOBJS in src/Makefile.in
Date: Sat, 9 Aug 2014 14:18:52 +0100

Trying to pass an extra library to configure using LIBS, as configure --help says I can, I found it did nothing, and traced it to src/Makefile.in, which deliberately ignores LIBS. This dates back 14 years, and whatever it was intended to fix no longer seems to be a problem. May I install the following patch? With the patch applied, supplying LIBS on the configure command-line worked exactly as it should.
