Re: [platform-testers] Request for testing GnuCOBOL 3.1-rc1

User-agent: KMail/5.1.3 (Linux/4.4.0-179-generic; KDE/5.18.0; x86_64; ; )

On a glibc system, configuring in such a way that it should find and use
my previously installed packages

  ../configure --prefix=/inst-x86_64-64 \
                 CPPFLAGS="-I/inst-x86_64-64/include -Wall" \

  configure: Checks for GMP/MPIR ...
  checking for gmp... no
  checking for libgmp... no
  checking gmp.h usability... yes
  checking gmp.h presence... yes
  checking for gmp.h... yes
  checking for gmp.h... (cached) yes
  checking if linking against libgmp with "-lgmp" works... yes
  checking matching GMP version... no (header: 6.2 / library: 6.1.0)
  configure: error: Unable to use GMP - Please check config.log

The config.log reveals that the test program was linked without -rpath

configure:15363: checking matching GMP version
configure:15395: gcc -o conftest -O2 -I/inst-x86_64-64/include -Wall 
-L/inst-x86_64-64/lib conftest.c  -lgmp >&5
configure:15395: $? = 0
configure:15395: ./conftest
configure:15395: $? = 0
configure:15432: gcc -o conftest -O2 -I/inst-x86_64-64/include -Wall 
-L/inst-x86_64-64/lib conftest.c  -lgmp >&5
configure:15432: $? = 0
configure:15432: ./conftest
configure:15432: $? = 0
configure:15452: result: no (header: 6.2 / library: 6.1.0)

and thus used the library installed in /usr, not the one in /inst-x86_64-64.

Of course, I don't use

  ../configure --prefix=/inst-x86_64-64 \
                 CPPFLAGS="-I/inst-x86_64-64/include -Wall" \
                 LDFLAGS="-L/inst-x86_64-64/lib -Wl,-rpath,/inst-x86_64-64/lib"

because that would cause _all_ built programs to have the RPATH entry, not
only those that need it.

The remedy will be to use the Gnulib module 'libgmp'. It uses an
AC_LIB_HAVE_LINKFLAGS invocation; it is this invocation which adds the
necessary -rpath option.
