Subject: [RT #37433] ExtUtils::MakeMaker: recognize OTHERLDFLAGS
The following report and patch were originally filed in the Perl 5 bug queue in October 2005. They were reviewed there. The reviewer expressed concerns and indicated that a bug report would be filed in ExtUtils-MakeMaker's own queue here on However, I can find no evidence that the report was transferred here. ack-ing through the EU-MM source code shipped with 5.18.0 suggests that the patch has not been applied. So, for the sake of completeness, I'm passing this report and one the reviewer's comment to you. I myself take no position on the patch. Thank you very much. -- jkeenan ########## Overriding CCFLAGS and OTHERLDFLAGS from command line can be very useful while testing and profiling XS code - i.e. see: These patches add OTHERLDFLAGS to @attrib_help and extend dynamic_lib(): --- 2005-10-14 15:37:07.907399600 +0400 +++ 2005-10-14 15:37:09.969886400 +0400 @@ -229,6 +229,7 @@ INC INCLUDE_EXT LDFROM LIB LIBPERL_A LIBS LINKTYPE MAKEAPERL MAKEFILE MAKEFILE_OLD MAN1PODS MAN3PODS MAP_TARGET MYEXTLIB NAME NEEDS_LINKING NOECHO NO_META NORECURS NO_VC OBJECT OPTIMIZE + OTHERLDFLAGS PERL_MALLOC_OK PERL PERLMAINCC PERLRUN PERLRUNINST PERL_CORE PERL_SRC PERM_RW PERM_RWX PL_FILES PM PM_FILTER PMLIBDIRS POLLUTE PPM_INSTALL_EXEC --- 2005-10-14 15:50:09.277398800 +0400 +++ 2005-10-14 15:50:25.824167900 +0400 @@ -889,7 +889,7 @@ return '' unless $self->has_link_code; - my($otherldflags) = $attribs{OTHERLDFLAGS} || ""; + my($otherldflags) = $attribs{OTHERLDFLAGS} || $self->{OTHERLDFLAGS} || ""; my($inst_dynamic_dep) = $attribs{INST_DYNAMIC_DEP} || ""; my($armaybe) = $attribs{ARMAYBE} || $self->{ARMAYBE} || ":"; my($ldfrom) = '$(LDFROM)'; -- Sergey Skvortsov mailto: ######### On Thu Nov 10 19:10:15 2005, stmpeters wrote: I am concerned about this patch. Code similar to what is in is in other ExtUtils::MM* files. So, rather than accidentially breaking ExtUtils::MakeMaker, I'm going to pass this patch off to the queue for ExtUtils::MakeMaker. ##########
