Seems like a bug in configure and/or Makefile.in in combination with a
misscofiguration of mine:
initially $shared is set to 1. (line 56: shared=1). Also the
libraries are set. As long as $shared this is not ZERO, the copy line
The copy line is set in Makefile.in UNCONDITIONALLY. That is the bug I suspect.
If $shared is set to 1 the libraries are emptied and the copy line
breaks. This happens by this condition near line 240:
elif test -z "$old_cc" -a -z "$old_cflags"; then
echo No shared library support.
The origin of this variables is line 60 at the top:
Bottomline: configure only works with shared libraries.
What do you suggest?
Setting CC or CFLAGS? Which value? Which location?
