Hai ,

I am sorry . I think i attached a wrong file while mailing . I will list the exact thing i did .

1) The flag used for passing the linker options through a compiler  is -Wl
2) The latest patch i send ( is for enabling the -export-symbols option for compaq c++ compiler . It is no way related to the the way linker flags are passed . But while adding those patches to the latest code base from cvs i found that you have already applied my old patch which i have asked to revert . I was under impression that -WL is the correct way to pass the flag because -Wl is giving some compiler error when used with rpath . Later i checked with compaq and found that is a compiler bug and the correct way of passing linker flag is by using the option -Wl . That is why he decided to pass rpath directly not using ${wl} . I remember asking you not to apply the patch that chaned the way linker flags are passed through the compiler long back . But now since i have send you a wrong cvs diff u might have got confused . Sorry for that . Any how i think this mail should make every thing clear . I only thing i need is

1) change -WL -> -Wl

2) Add the support for export-symbols option of the libtool for compaq c++ compiler .

The following lines need to be added to the file if u want to enable this option i assume u have already reverted the "WL" changed .

Sorry once again .
