This looks like an upstream bug.

The gdal SB initially fails  as below:

On manually re-running make, it runs to completion.

However make install now fails identically.

The error above happens because gdal_wrap.o is in
build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.7/extensions/.libs (within

build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.7/extensions contains gdal_wrap.lo:

> + cat gdal_wrap.lo
> # build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.7/extensions/gdal_wrap.lo - a libtool object file
> # Generated by libtool (GNU libtool) 2.4
> #
> # Please DO NOT delete this file!
> # It is necessary for linking the library.
> # Name of the PIC object.
> pic_object='.libs/gdal_wrap.o'
> # Name of the non-PIC object
> non_pic_object=none

That looks as if it ought to work I guess, but it doesn't.

I salvaged the build by:

> 08:40:26# cd build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.7/extensions
> 08:47:54# mv .libs/gdal_wrap.o .
> 08:48:22# rmdir .libs
> 08:48:30# ln -s . .libs
> 08:50:46# cd /tmp/SBo/gdal-2.1.3
> 08:50:57# make install DESTDIR=$PKG

then running the rest of the SB commands by hand. (I had run some of the
previous commands already, e.g. to set $PKG).

Do I need a newer version of ld or what?

Cheers ... Duncan.
