1997.05.31 00:22 "tiff-v3.4beta036/gcc make problem", by John Russell Thomas


I am running IRIX 5.3 on a SGI Indigo2 Impact.

When I run the configure script, it uses gcc as my compiler. I then run make ( actually gmake) and the make process dies with a message saying "gcc: unrecognized option `-rpath'". I have included the output from gmake at the bottom of this email.

If I rerun configure using the '-with-CC=cc' option everything seems to make correctly.

I would prefer to have the package compiled with gcc but the -rpath option is hardwired into the configure script. Is there any way around this? I know that the -rpath option is used with 'ld', but I am not real sure where to procede from there. Is this a problem with my gcc or a problem with the configure script?

Any suggestions appreciated.



P.S. - Thanks for the info yesterday Sam. I finally figured out what IFL stands for as well!
