Comment 3 David Wood 2009-09-09 20:15:02 UTC
This is not a FreeRADIUS problem as such - rather it's a problem with 
embedded Perl after the recent libltdl update.

I worked with the submitter of PR ports/137694 on this problem following 
his private report to me. He submitted that PR at my request against 
lang/perl5.8 and lang/perl5.10.

It seems that the libltdl upgrade changed the semantics of dynamic 
linking with embedded Perl. Calls to dlopen(3) made via rlm_perl seem to 
need " | RTLD_GLOBAL" adding to the 'mode' argument (see the man page 
for dlopen(3)). However, that system call is not made directly in 
rlm_perl - all that rlm_perl does is use the interface found in the 
perlembed(1) man page. Accordingly, I think this is in the remit of the 
lang/perl5.8 and lang/perl5.10 maintainer.

PR ports/137694 contains a work-round (thanks, Ryan). If no fixes to 
Perl are forthcoming, I will look at incorporating that work-round into 
the rc.d script that net/freeradius2 installs.

I'm not sure what the correct way to handle this PR is. Arguably it's 
superseded by ports/137694. We don't have superseded in GNATS - I guess 
this should either be closed or suspended? I leave it to one of the 
committers to mark this PR accordingly.

With best wishes,

David (maintainer, net/freeradius2)
