Dear Thomas,

yes (someone using Mac OS X commented on the issue a few days ago,

I made the change more than two months before releasing 5.6,
and no one noticed this issue...

As far as Mac OS X is concerned, the issue was there at 5.5, it just did not surface.

You coded

MK_SHARED_LIB='$(CC) -dynamiclib -install_name $(DESTDIR)$(libdir)/`basename address@hidden

but, according to


Also, specifying DESTDIR should not change the operation of the software
in any way, so _its value should not be included in any file contents_.

Thanks - I don't recall seeing that (though it's possible that it was
added more recently than when I started using $DESTDIR - in 1996)

Since DESTDIR is used only at install time, the problem struck once you started to link when installing. But putting DESTDIR in a build stage command was an error in the first place.

I see (I see what I'll be working on tomorrow ;-)

BTW, Mac OS X has no rpath support

I was aware of that (thanks)
