Re: New packge: lighttpd-1.3.0

Hello Brian,

No I don't use Apache here at home, I running lighttpd now;) I use the
options --enable-fastcgi and two others to get the CGI SAPI.

Now I see "$(LIBTOOL) --mode=compile $(CC) ...." in the Makefile,
which was previously just "$(CC) ...", however I'm not sure what
option makes the difference, I already see now what the problem is, if
you have a source tree with the static archives ready compiled you can
try the following, remove all *.la files, add to the Makefile:
LDFLAGS = -no-undefined
and run make again and see if the modules are compiled shared then.

There should be lines like this in the Makefile:
ext/bcmath/ $(shared_objects_bcmath) $(BCMATH_SHARED_DEPENDENCIES)
        $(LIBTOOL) --mode=link $(CC) $(COMMON_FLAGS) $(CFLAGS_CLEAN) $(EXTRA_CFLAGS) $(LDFLAGS) -o $@ -export-dynamic -avoid-version -prefer-pic -module -rpath $(phplibdir) $(EXTRA_LDFLAGS) $(shared_objects_bcmath) $(BCMATH_SHARED_LIBADD)

Originally LDFLAGS is empty.  BUT, BCMATH_SHARED_LIBADD is empty too,
so it needs to hold a reference to libphp5 else there will be most
probably failures during linking because of unresolved references.

This will need some more changes in their build system, that is
we need to update all config.m4 files to include the reference to for all modules which are available.
