: It seems like this will force every system to start looking for .lib
: files. That seems definitely wrong on a Unix system.
Why - just because it would slow the link down, or are you worried
that the linker might actually find files ending in .lib that it
should not be looking at ?
Both. The former is an annoyance which we should avoid. The latter
is simply incorrect. The linker is documented to look at a certain
set of files. To look at other files can only be called a bug.
: I think this needs to be made emulation specific somehow.
That seems to be the problem - how to tell which emulation is
currently the target. Maybe we need another field in the
ld_emulation_xfer_struct which is a find-potential-libraries function?
Probably. We already have ldemul_open_dynamic_archive.
