Hi Nicolas,

I've removed libtool@ from the list of recipients -- no need to discuss
this on both lists.

No problem.  Thank you for the feedback!

Could you report `libtool --version', so that, in case of doubt, we know
which patches were incorporated and which weren't?

If it's before 2005-10-03, I ask you not to update until Gary's BSD make
patch is in (so you don't unnecessarily experience a known and pending

Yes, we know about the speed.  :-/

This seems to be an unrelated failure, see below.

Should've been `lt_ECHO='printf %s\n'; export lt_ECHO'
Sorry, I believe it was me who posted that wrongly back then.

Weird.  The linker seems to need a different option order than given by
the compiler driver.  Does it work if you issue this manually?

  cd $top_builddir/tests/mdemo
  make          # this should create .libs/
  cc -shared -input .libs/ -soname `test -n 
"0.0.0:0.0" && print -r "X-set_version 0.0.0:0.0" | /usr/bin/sed -e 1s/^X//` 
-update_registry .libs/so_locations -o .libs/ .libs/foo2.o -lm 

You can try adding `-v' to see which options' order is messed up.
Could you issue the same with the C++ compiler driver `CC' to see
whether it has the same bug?

If you can make the C part work, you can try adjusting the setting of
archive_cmds and archive_expsym_cmds at the top of the libtool script
to see if mdemo compiles then.  (The source of this line is in
libltdl/m4/libtool.m4, but after changing that you need the autotools

In any case, your report indicates that we indeed have fixed the
original issue for which I asked feedback.  :-)
