See, here's the thing.. there are two locations where -lmysqlclient
exists in the configure script. By default, they look like this:
root@devious:/home/compile/tpop3d-1.5.3# grep -n LIBS.*lmysqlclient
3869: LIBS="-lmysqlclient -lz $LIBS"
So the -lz is already there once. Tried adding it to the other one, but
it still isn't using it when the configure runs. The log shows:
configure:7077: gcc -o conftest -g -O2
-L/lib -L/usr/lib conftest.c -lssl -lmysqlclient -lcrypt >&5
If I manually grab the chunk of test code from the configure script,
dump it in a .c file and compile it with -lz, it works fine (and returns
the expected error if I compile without -lz).
So there's something screwy going on with the configure script, but I'm
damned if I can work out what it is.. Anyone?
