Hi, XML-LibXML links explicitly with libm, but uses none if the symbols libm exports. I guess libm is used by libxml, but it is already linked with that, and even if it weren't, that would be a bug in libxml and none of XML-LibXML's business. The trivial attached patch removes explicit linkage with libm. Thanks for considering. -- dam JabberID: dam@jabber.minus273.org

Hi, applied the patch to the SVN. However, I kept -lm in the fallback LIBS list (which is the same as xml2-config --libs on the Linux platform). I.e., if xml2-config gets used and it does not return -lm, Makefile.PL does not add it either. Hope this closes this bug. -- Petr Dne so 29.lis.2008 02:37:04, dmn@debian.org napsal(a): Show quoted text
