No build issues here (foresightlinux).
Build tool just reports (as always):
+ SharedLibrary: /usr/lib64/libsword.so.1.7.3
+ CheckSonames: /usr/lib64/libsword.so.1.7.3 has soname
libsword.so.1.7.3; best practice is that the filename that matches the
soname is a symlink: soname -> soname.minorversion
But nothing to change for a branch release. But maybe something to
consider for sword 1.8?
Especially if abi is compatible with the previous release, the soname
doesn't need to change.
Not sure if this is only with cmake, but I always have to do:
chrpath -d build/bindings/swig/perl/blib/arch/auto/Sword/Sword.so
because our buildtool aborts with:
"CheckDestDir: file /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/auto/Sword/Sword.so
has illegal RPATH /tmp/rmake/builds/sword/sword-1.7.3/build"
I used cmake to build it.
Xiphos 3.1.6 builds fine on top of that.
Only building on our buildcluster. No real tests.
