-fPIC problem building libgsf
[Please CC - I'm not on this list]
libgsf used to build fine on HPPA, but the latest buildd attempt
failed. Looking at the log, I guess the root cause has to do with:
checking for gcc option to produce PIC... -fPIC
checking if gcc PIC flag -fPIC works... no
which used to be 'yes'.
Is this a known issue? If not, can someone provide me with the config.log
generated while trying to build libgsf?
