Subject: libpcre3-dev: pcre-config introduces rpath in kfreebsd-* binaries
Date: Sun, 7 Feb 2010 14:27:17 +0100
Package: libpcre3-dev
Severity: normal

After a build of leafnode on kfreebsd-i386 I ended up with
E: leafnode: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath ./usr/bin/leafnode-version /usr/lib
[...]

I found, that pcre-config --libs returns

-L/usr/lib -Wl,-R/usr/lib -lpcre

on kfreebsd, and that most packages in kfreebsd-* that use autoconf  and
libpcre3-dev have rpath defined in binaries.

So, if a maintainer builds, for example, zsh, leafnode, apache2-utils ...
on kfreebsd-*, the upload would be rejected.

Upstream's changelog mentions:
[...]
7. Add -Wl,-R... flags in pcre-config.in for *BSD* systems, as I'm told
that is needed.
[...]

Up to now the kfreebsd people can't think of a reason, why this should
be needed.

Thanks,
Robert
