Well, it's a bit confusing to me without actually running configure
myself, but I can't tell if fontconfig really actually use
autoconf/automake/libtool "the right way", or if instead it merely uses
them to generate a JamFile for the 'jam' package building tool.
Hmm... I think it optionally uses jam. It certainly doesn't use
automake (no Makefile.am, etc.). It is a very strange package indeed.
Well, that's either (a) a warning that the relevant libtool link command
line does not contain the "-no-undefined" flag, which indicates that the
maintainer asserts that the library will have no undefined symbols at
link time, or (b) an indication that, contrary to expectations, the
library DID have undefined symbols at link time.
Thanks Chuck. It has been a while since I worked with the autotools.
For (b), does this contradiction require that '-no-undefined' be passed?
Right now I am not passing -no-undefined and am getting this warning.
When I get a chance, I'll download your source and see what I can make
of it. Ping me if you don't hear in a few days.
Okay, thanks. There is a freetype2-2.1.5-1.sh script included and doing
a "prep && conf && build" takes about two minutes on my box. Just FYI.
