Description Ting-Wei Lan 2015-08-01 17:26:20 UTC
Both gmp and mpfr ports install .la files. Can we remove them to prevent odd build problems?

libgmp.la and libmpfr.la cause gnome-calculator to fail to build in jhbuild because wrong version of libpangoft2-1.0.so.0 is found during linking:
/home/lantw44/gnome/devinstall/lib/libgtk-3.so: undefined reference to `pango_fc_font_map_config_changed'
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)

Removing libgmp.la and libmpfr.la fixes the problem.
Comment 1 Ting-Wei Lan 2015-08-05 09:49:16 UTC
A simple build test done by running 'poudriere bulk' on all ports having math/gmp or math/mpfr dependencies shows no build failure, so removing libgmp.la and libmpfr.la seems to be safe.

This problem still doesn't get fixed and we still see build failure caused by .la files. Does anyone have time to review the patch?
