Sorry for the delay in replying, Germán. Yes, all is fine for me there.

This line has been removed by Graham in a later revision, so I suppose this work for him now. And to my there isn't problem.

Hi Matt,

thanks for the advice. Removing the EOAccess_LIBRARIES_DEPEND_UPON line is sufficient, so the ADDITIONAL_NATIVE_LIBS settings in the preamble are working. However, I don't know whether this would affect other platforms, so no patch yet:

The Target_LIBRARIES_DEPEND_UPON were added in r35397, which just says "Add flags":

2012-08-10  German A. Arias  <german@xelalug.org>

        * EOInterface/GNUmakefile:
        * EOAccess/GNUmakefile:
        * EOAdaptors/SQLiteAdaptor/GNUmakefile.in:
        * EOAdaptors/PostgreSQLAdaptor/config.mak.in:
        * EOControl/GNUmakefile:
        * EOModeler/GNUmakefile: Add flags to compile with new linkers.

I guess we need to ask German what "new linkers" there are, and how removing Target_LIBRARIES_DEPEND_UPON might break them?

the following entries in Makefile.preamble used to link this with the appropriate linker command line for the platform, figuring out whats gone awry there would be the right place to start


(apologies if this gets sent twice)

I'm building GDL2 from r36452 on apple-apple-apple. The build is fine, but linking fails because it tries to use Linux-style -lFramework instead of Apple-style -framework Framework flags. I can patch the GNUmakefiles to solve my problem (example below), but a patch should really support both linker styles and I don't know how I'd do that.


+EOAccess_LIBRARIES_DEPEND_UPON = -framework EOControl $(OBJC_LIBS)
