I have one problem with libtool 1.9d, that I suspect is still present
in 1.9f. If I specify -lpthread when linking, libtool searches for a
real file matching -lpthread, like this:

-lpthread. *** I have the capability to make that library automatically link in

Then you have a binutils problem. The new magic for /lib/libpthread.a tells libtool that this is the import library. (which normally would


called libpthread.dll.a)

Actually I don't think I have problems with binutils, but thanks for
the useful pointer.

I think you do have. up-to-date?

I have this in the generated libtool script:
# Method to check whether dependent libraries are shared objects.
deplibs_check_method="file_magic ^x86 archive import|^x86 DLL"

# Command to use when deplibs_check_method == "file_magic".

Is that what is expected?

yes, I posted the relevant snippet of this func_win32_libid function, so that you can check what's going on with your objdump and nm on your libpthread.a
But you have a different/unsupported build so you should really step through your relevant func_win32_libid() function.

If I change to
it works.

because it overrides the check. it passes no args to the func. -- Reini Urban
