Ok, next try. undefined symbols in libsasl, due to a buggy
version of libtool used.
Ok, next try. computer crashes after compiling nonstop for 5 hours 30
Ok, reboot, and continue compiling for another 2 hours. Linker crashes
while linking with error undefined symbol "ldbm_back_abandon" (which
annoyingly looks like the do-nothing function defined in
So, just ruling out these possibilities:
- abandon.c contains a function ldbm_back_abandon:
- abandon.o is renamed to ldbmabandon.o and included in libbackends.a
- command line of gcc that fails includes libbackends.a
- libbackends.a(dbminit.o) has the undefined reference.
So, now I am stuck...
I don't see how this could be Hurd specific either.
