This is for anyone that uses autoconf.
When I want to check if a library is available, I put
into configure.in and this works for most libraries such as pthreads
but it doesn't work for WINE. I tried
I know the function is there and I know the program would work if I didn't
check fo rth library but configure always returns that it's not there. I
checked with nm to be sure and got
[mel at morpheus lib]$ nm -B libwine.a | grep MAIN
00001e20 T MAIN_GdiInit
00001ba8 T MAIN_KernelInit
00001af0 T MAIN_MainInit
00001ec8 T MAIN_UserInit
00002048 T MAIN_WinelibInit
0000adf0 T MAIN_GetLanguageID
0000a8c0 t MAIN_GetProgramName
0000a93c T MAIN_ParseDebugOptions
0000c49c T MAIN_ParseLanguageOption
0000c648 T MAIN_ParseModeOption
0000c6b4 t MAIN_ParseOptions
0000a8a0 T MAIN_Usage
0000c7fc T MAIN_WineInit
so it's defo there. How does AC_CHECK_LIB work and why might it be
returning me garbage?
C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot.
C++ makes it harder, but when you do, you blow away your whole leg
