I've just taken a quick look, and it appears that the problem is in the
order in which libraries are linked.
This should help you along:
- add a
XST_LIBS=`echo $XST_LIBS | sed -e 's,-lgal\>,/usr/lib/libgal.a,'`
line after the XST_LIBS= line in configure.in to use the static GAL.
- change the
to fix the linking order (as $ARCHIVER_LIBS refers to symbols in $XST_LIBS)
- regenerate the auto* files in debian/rules and configure using
env srcdir=`pwd` sh macros/autogen.sh [./configure arguments here]
rather than running "./configure".
- add the appropriate build dependencies for the auto-stuff to debian/control
- extend the "clean" target in debian/rules to clean out the extra files
like "configure" which are now generated.
Personally, I guess I'd favor a sort of modified form of medieval justice.
The idea is that you throw the lawyers for both parties into a pond. The
person whose lawyer sinks would be declared the winner.
