my first post on this list; i run Slackware64 14.1 and I am on the
long path to install GNU Octave. 64-bit libraries are under
"$prefix/lib64", but I also have the alien libraries under
While building GraphicsMagick 1.3.20, the linker fails to locate
64-bit libraries because the GraphicsMagick's "configure.ac" template
hard-codes the pathname "$some_prefix/lib" in several places. I have
filed a bug report upstream.
Successful builds are possible by running configure with:
$ ./configure LDFLAGS='-L/usr/lib64 -L/usr/local/lib64'
and it works for me if I modify "GraphicsMagick.SlackBuild" by appending
such variable setting on the command line of "configure". Can this
change be applied to the distributed SlackBuilds script?
P.S. The script "GraphicsMagick.SlackBuild" runs "configure" with the
option "--disable-openmp". If I compile by hand the package without
this option, everything completes successfully. What's the reason to
use this option?
