Description Sysoltsev Slawa 2003-01-14 11:36:18 UTC
Description of problem:
Traditionally environment variable CC contains C compiler name while CXX 
contains C++ compiler name. For example I have CC=gcc, CXX=g++. If you try to 
build stardict with these environment settings you will get a lot of undefined 
reference during build because stardict's Makefile will use $CC=gcc as C++ 
compiler therefore libstdc++ won't be linked. Error happens because Makefile uses 
COMPILE.c and LINK.c macroses which are for plain C compilation. It softens by 
declaration CC=g++ in begin of makefile, but as make is called with -e option 
(environment variables precedence over variables from makefiles) environment's 
CC=gcc prevail, that's why gcc is used to build stardict.
To be correct you should use at least LINK.cpp macro instead of LINK.c (as gcc 
do C++ compilation for .cc files). I'll attach the patch with these changes, please 
take a look at it.
