People like you are responsible for the bad taste Linux has in the public.
Attacking people for a bug description is more than a fauxpas....
Doing this with a non-personalized nick is even worse.
BTW: this was different before aprox. 2004. Before that time Linux people generally have been very polite and helpful. Since then there are so many unfriendly people that these people unfortunately dominate the rest in the public.
Looking at your reply shows that you don't know what you are talking of.
- If you like to associate -R with an environment, it is LD_RUN_PATH.
DT_RPATH does not exist.
- Linux uses the old runtime linker that was written for a.out
This is why linker-caching and path setup exist. ELF has a RUNPATH
property that is better than the method in the old a.out system.
- It may be that recent libtool versions are better, but there is too much
software out that uses non-working versions
- It seems that you just know too few things about GNU autoconf.
Knowing that it is based on m4 is not sufficient to understand that
the documentation from the FSF in how to use it is based on outdated
technologies from the 1970s.
- Using "configure" to create something like config.h (as done in the
schily makfile system) is OK
- It seems that Paul Smith copied the ideas for a more modern
autodependency handling from Sun's ideas and implementations in
SunPro make from 1986 and from the Schily makefilesystem that
implemented this method in a portable way in the 1990s. He however
implemented the support in a gmake in a buggy way as gmake spits out
warnings for things that are expected due to his strange algorithm.
