multifile plugin depends on fts.h not available everywhere #1757
Steps to Reproduce the Problem
try compiling libelektra with musl libc - like crosscompiling for OpenWRT:
It seems some people have a grudge against the fts* interface:
Thank you for reporting!
As temporary fix you can add
For the next release, we will add a check for this header file and remove the plugin multifile automatically on absence of the header file. Or do you think that the functionality of the multifile plugin is needed for musl targets?
I don't know of any usecase for this plugin ATM - so probably not. OTOH almost any software can run on musl targets, so if applications start using elektra and start using this plugin it might become an issue in the future. I wouldn't bother about this for now, but maybe it makes sense to look into why peope dislike this API before deciding how to proceed.
