#9487 closed Patch - Bug Fix (Fixed)

[PATCH] configure: Fix libs order in check_ld()

Reported by: Lawrence Rust <lvr@…> Owned by: markk
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.24.1
Component: MythTV - configure script Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords: configure check_ld
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The configure script defines the function check_ld which tests if a named function can be compiled with specified headers and libraries. However, the libraries are placed after $extralibs in the linker invocation which can cause the link to fail if the tested libraries depend on $extralibs.

This situation occurs for Windows when $extralibs contains the pthreads library and the library under test (e,g. libfftw3) uses pthreads.

The solution is to move $extralibs after the libraries under test. The attached patch does this.
