Got warning when build on debian 9 ppc64le (curl 7.60.0) #2617
I did this
Got following message when build on debian 9 ppc64le
I expected the following
no warning "/usr/bin/ar:
foobar@deb9le-dev01:~$ uname -a
This "hack" removes the warning:
--- libtool~ 2018-05-29 08:28:28.766037457 +0200 +++ libtool 2018-05-29 08:29:09.234334404 +0200 @@ -147,7 +147,7 @@ AR="/usr/bin/ar" # Flags to create an archive. -AR_FLAGS="cru" +AR_FLAGS="cr" # How to feed a file listing to the archiver. archiver_list_spec="@"
The automake default ar flags are 'cru', but the 'u' flag in there causes warnings on many modern Linux distros. Removing 'u' may have a minor performance impact on older distros but should not cause harm. Explained on the automake mailing list already back in April 2015: https://email@example.com/msg07705.html Fixes #2617
