Bug#486990: plotmtv: FTBFS: ld: cannot find -lXext

Package: plotmtv
Version: 1.4.4t-10
Severity: serious
User: debian-qa@lists.debian.org
Usertags: qa-ftbfs-20080619 qa-ftbfs
Justification: FTBFS on i386


During a rebuild of all packages in sid, your package failed to build on

Relevant part:
> gcc -m32 -o plotmtv -Wall -g -O2 -DPRINTER_NAME=\"\" -DPRINTER_CMD=\"lpr\"       test_plotmtv.o test_plotX11.o test_plotX11_mult.o                   plotX11_cmn.o plotX11_2D.o plotX11_3D.o                   plotps_cmn.o plotps_2D.o plotps_3D.o                   plotcmn.o writegif.o xv24to8.o ../Lib/libctr.a -lXext -lX11   -lm   
> /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXext
> collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

The full build log is available from:

This rebuild was done with gcc 4.3 instead of gcc 4.2, because gcc 4.3
is now the default on most architectures (even if it's not the case on
i386 yet).  Consequently, many failures are caused by the switch to gcc
If you determine that this failure is caused by gcc 4.3, feel free to
downgrade this bug to 'important' if your package is only built on i386,
and this bug is specific to gcc 4.3 (i.e the package builds fine with
gcc 4.2).

A list of current common problems and possible solutions is available at

About the archive rebuild: The rebuild was done on about 50 AMD64 nodes
of the Grid'5000 platform, using a clean chroot containing a sid i386
environment.  Internet was not accessible from the build systems.
