Thanks. I didn't realize there were two binaries. Yes, my system is ELF
and I double-checked and my system used bxform-088-ELF.tgz.
It is interesting to note that the NetBSD package installer for this
says: "Run-time link editor tries to resolve libGL.so symbols when
linking with shared libxforms, but all the packages that requre xforms seem
to work OK without -lGL, so for now, remove the shared lib." And then this
/bin/rm -f /usr/X11R6/lib/libforms.so.0.88 /usr/X11R6/lib/libforms.so.0
Also, I found a note that says:
Libraries have been installed in:
If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
- add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
- add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
- use the `-Wl,--rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
- have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/ld.so.conf'
So I tried:
rainier:~/projects/homebsd$ gcc -I/usr/X11R6/include/X11
-I/usr/X11R6/include -L/usr/X11R6/lib -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/X11R6/lib
/tmp/ccXROeII.o: In function `main':
/tmp/ccXROeII.o(.text+0x12): undefined reference to `fl_initialize'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
I guess I need to research further. I have heard about this libtool a lot,
but I am not sure what it is.
