Re: [xml] Building libxml2 on solaris

Please could you help me build libxml2 on Solaris 2.10 (x86)? I get the
following errors:

Uhm... doesn't Solaris 10 ship with libxml2 by default (Solaris 11 does
ship libxml2 and I thought we backported that to Solaris 10 long ago) ?

ld: fatal: relocations remain against allocatable but non-writable sections
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `'

make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all-recursive'

1. Try using -KPIC
2. Which compiler do you use ? If you use Sun Studio/Workshop/Fote make
sure you use /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc for linking and not "ld" directly.

The lines before the error message all refer to  /usr/local/lib/libz.a.
A Google search suggests ld wants to link against shared libraries but
libz.a is a static library. Is there a switch I can give to the
configure script to make it look for static libraries? Some other
configure scripts seem to have a -static switch, but this one doesn't.

Try "-B dynamic". Solaris tries to avoid shipping static libraries since
some releases and even /sbin/sh is no longer statically linked.
