Description Damien 2019-06-07 13:01:54 UTC

I wish to ask a few questions regarding the existing patches for this port so I can understand what I need to change upstream to absorb the patches where possible.

I noticed: `-Wl,--as-needed` is removed from the linker flags.  Is that something bsd specific or should I remove it everywhere for all builds?

`-ldl` is removed, perhaps I don't even need that flag in DPF (?)

I need to ask falktx to fix the getwd() call to be more platform independent.

-Wl,--as-needed is for very special situations when some symbol is missing and is resolved by the user. It should not be needed in LV2 plugins.

> `-ldl` is removed

This used to be BSD-specific, buy I think that they added libdl.so on FreeBSD too. Please don't worry about this.
