Built xemacs with PKG_OPTIONS.xemacs=-canna. Everything is fine, until the final link end with:

Undefined                       first referenced
 symbol                             in file
ber_pvt_opt_on                      eldap.o  (symbol belongs to implicit dependency /usr/local/lib/
ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to temacs

liblber is a library that comes with openldap. The configure script suggests that xemacs needs liblber solely for this symbol and can't do without it.
Build xemacs without PKG_OPTIONS.xemacs=ldap
Set PKG_OPTIONS.xemacs=ldap -canna in my case, and the link and thus the build works fine. I suggest making this option mandatory or at least the default.

Is this problem still current? Despite the slow pace of xemacs updates it
has changed since this PR was last touched...

feedback bounced, someone needs to try this

uebayashi-san resigned, shouldn't own PRs

I will have a look at this.

I could not reproduce the problem with current xemacs nor xemacs-current packages
-- presumed fixed.
