Description Wart 2007-01-24 00:32:28 UTC
Description of problem:

The link /usr/lib64/ is missing from the compat-libf2c-34 package. 
This causes problems when trying to compile some programs that try to link
against libg2c.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install compat-libf2c-34
2.  Compile a program that links against g2c with -lg2c
Actual results:

The link step fails with:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lg2c

Expected results:

The program links with no errors.

Additional info:

When I manually create the symbolic link, the link step succeeds:
# cd /usr/lib64
# ln -s /usr/lib64/

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2007-01-24 08:45:15 UTC
The link is intentionally not in /usr/lib64/, but in gcc's lib directory.
If you need -lg2c, you should be using compat-gcc-34 compiler too, so either
link through g77 driver, or gcc34.
