The building of py-4Suite on Linux (CentOS 5) failes with this error message :
Fatal Python error: Interpreter not initialized (version mismatch?)
After some digging, it appears that le ld linker links the shared libraries (EscapeQuotesc.so... etc) against the static libpython that is in /opt/pkg/lib/python2.6/config.
The ld man page states that the linker will look for Libraires specified with -L in the order of their apperience in the command line. And in fact the -L /opt/pkg/lib/python2.6/config comes before -L /opt/pkg/lib (where the libpython2.6.so lies)
The -L opt/pkg/lib/python2.6/config is added in the buildlink3.mk file of the python2.6 package (line 16) : BUILDLINK_LIBDIRS.python26+= lib/python2.6/config
build textproc/py-4Suite on a Linux (CentOS) box
Avoid static linking... knowing that :
- GCC and LD does not seem to provide any way to force linking Dynamically Vs Staticly (even -Bdynamic does not have any effect)
- Commenting line 16 in buildlink3.mk make things work but it's not a "real" solution. Some scenarios need to link against the static libpython and this trick disable this ability.
- Reorder the option line to make sure that -L opt/pkg/lib comes before -L opt/pkg/lib/python2.6/config. This works fine (tested "by hand") but there is no way to put it in the pkgsrc way (in the Makefile or in the mk.conf)
- Do some BUILDLINK_TRANSFORM magic in the Makefile of py-4Suite but this will be python version specific and does not seem to work (not taken into effect)
