Description Jin Guojun 2019-02-20 19:22:20 UTC
"-Wl,-r " is a compiler switch to pass linker option "-r" for building shared objects, and this should work for all CC and GCC compilers on different Unix platforms.
This works prior to Clang 6.0.1 and FreeBSD 12-R, but failed on FreeBSD 12-R with Clang 6.0.1.

Below steps can easily reproduce the problem. Directly use ld to link a shared object works no issue for a shared object [step 3,4], but cc (Clang 6.0.1) "-Wl,-r" command failed to do so [step 5].

#include <stdio.h>

int anyFunc(int a, int b)
{
        printf("a = %d b = %d\n", a, b);
        return a * b;
}
