Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to nsopenssl build problem

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Hm, well:

  • -Ldir : Add directory dir to the list of directories to be searched for `-l'.

  • -llibrary : Search the library named library when linking.
  • So, the linking problem we fixed here is that on Solaris we need to include the /etc/ library to give us the API for the runtime linker, and adding the above -L/etc/lib -ldl switches make that happen.
