Error in Relinking (was: Question about ORBit2, gnome-canvas & gnome-ui)

Hi Evandro, thanks for the hints!

What could explain this behaviour? Are some dependencies missing?

The problem (I think) is that the linker is trying to use the ORBit2
libraries that are in /usr/lib instead of ../src/.libs and therefore
can't find them. If you pay attention you'll see some error messages
during %makeinstall.

Btw, gail also has this problem (only libgailutil* is installed,
libgail.* is missing). If you manually copy the libgail.* libraries to
/usr/lib after running make, next time you run %makeinstall the
libgail.* files will be created.

Yep, i ran thru the output logs of the affected packages, and during the make install, it shows a message "Warning: relinking .... ". (I don't quite know why this happens though).

However, the sequence that causes this makes sence.. Since the makefile is using $PREFIX/lib as library include path, and not it's own .libs, it can not re-link the file, and the file is thus history..

(i presume it is relinking during install since its using a different library dir?)

This bug ofcource doesnt show up when the $prefix is the same as the destdir.. since the libs needed to relink are present.

However _any_ packaging tool i know (rpm, but also deb, etc), make install into a different destdir, so would have this bug. Basicly making the packages unpackagable ? ;-)

Shall i file bug-reports in bugzilla for the affected packages?
(libgnomeui, libgnomecanvas, libgail, ORBit2), or is anyone actively working on this?
