Re: GTK+ library access issue?

Hi Nicola,
I did find this on the GNU gcc page:
"-l library
It makes a difference where in the command you write this option; the linker searches and processes libraries and object files in the order they are specified. Thus, `foo.o -lz bar.o' searches library `z' after file foo.o but before bar.o. If bar.o refers to functions in `z', those functions may not be loaded."

Seems to confirm it. Interesting.
I guess the previous gcc was a bit more forgiving for my sloppy ways.

Try "gcc test.c -lm": I found the object order is important on recent
Ubuntu. Not sure is gcc or ubuntu related.

With autotools I had to move the libs flags in LDADD instead of LDFLAGS.
