Changeset 14844 causes a link error on my system (Slackware) for libmythupnp (cannot find –lXext).

Error is:-

ccache g++ -Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib/qt/lib -shared -Wl,-soname, -o version.o httprequest.o upnp.o ssdp.o taskqueue.o upnputil.o upnpdevice.o upnptasknotify.o upnptasksearch.o threadpool.o httpserver.o upnpcds.o upnpcdsobjects.o bufferedsocketdevice.o eventing.o upnpcmgr.o upnpmsrr.o upnptaskevent.o ssdpcache.o configuration.o soapclient.o mythxmlclient.o moc_ssdpcache.o  -L/usr/lib/qt/lib -L../libmyth -lmyth-0.20 -lqt-mt -lXext -lX11 -lm -lpthread

The attached patch resolves this issue for me.

Sorry I broke it for you, Peter.
I tested on Knoppix, but somehow missed the fact that -lX11 -lXext are tacked onto the end of LIBS (and thus, we need EXTRA_LIBS)

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [14855]) LIBS always contains some X libraries, so we need EXTRA_LIBS also - for the linker to find them on some platforms. Closes #4166
