When you say that setting the custom LDFLAGS doesn't work, have you actually exported them? :) If you just do LDFLAGS=... or LDFLAGS != ... or LDFLAGS := ..., make(1) will only use the new value *within the Makefile itself*, it won't be passed to child processes such as the configure script. Also, are you aware of the dpkg-buildflags utility available in recent versions of dpkg-dev? :) On both counts, feel free to take a look at recent versions of, say, the timelimit (>= 1.6-1) package. (shameless self-ad, of course, but IMHO it might be useful to you :) G'luck, Peter -- Peter Pentchev email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org roam@FreeBSD.org PGP key: http://people.FreeBSD.org/~roam/roam.key.asc Key fingerprint FDBA FD79 C26F 3C51 C95E DF9E ED18 B68D 1619 4553 What would this sentence be like if pi were 3?
