Description Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2015-04-29 03:56:42 UTC
It seems unsatisfied references are treated differently between static and shared variants. Stripping all symbols from object files before linking the library *sometimes* helps.

$ echo 'int main() { }' | cc -xc -o /dev/null - -L/usr/local/lib -labacus-osi
/usr/local/lib/libabacus-osi.so: undefined reference to `ABA_SUB::generateLp()'
/usr/local/lib/libabacus-osi.so: undefined reference to `ABA_MASTER::_initializeLpParameters()'
/usr/local/lib/libabacus-osi.so: undefined reference to `ABA_MASTER::_printLpParameters()'
/usr/local/lib/libabacus-osi.so: undefined reference to `ABA_MASTER::_createLpMasters()'
/usr/local/lib/libabacus-osi.so: undefined reference to `ABA_MASTER::_deleteLpMasters()'
/usr/local/lib/libabacus-osi.so: undefined reference to `ABA_MASTER::_outputLpStatistics()'
/usr/local/lib/libabacus-osi.so: undefined reference to `ABA_MASTER::_setDefaultLpParameters()'

The issue existed before ports r384953 i.e., abacus-3.2.b1_4 is also affected.

Hi Jan,
Seeing how this PR is coming up on 2 years and nobody has stepped in to maintain this port after gahr@ released it, maybe we should think about deprecating the port?

Is it usable in other ways?
Or do we have to limit it to a static library only?

If nobody is going to spend time on this port, what should we do with it?
