I know this might be a strange thing to do, but...
I'm trying to get one plugin to use external symbols from another
plugin, and it _almost_ works:
- windows build easy - manual Makefile.nmake hacks easy
- linux build slightly harder due to my lack of understanding of
automake, but now works
- rpm packaging fails!
The problem I've got with the rpm packaging is that when constructing
the install tree under /tmp, libtool notices that the child plugin is
linked against the parent and tries to relink it - unfortunately using
-l<plugin-name> but thus tries to find lib<plugin-name>.so, not
Is there any way to prevent this relink - as I understand it, provided
they are loaded in the right order, the relink should not be needed (but
I might be wrong there...).
Of course most answers will probably be "don't do it" ;-)
