Configure check for PICFLAGS fails
Last modified: 2006-04-26 14:15:42 UTC
There is a small bug in a chek of PICFLAGS in configure. It's not taken into account that value of a variable could have several words, space separated. So, the following message is produced during the run of configure:
checking whether to use pam_smbpass... yes
test: x-fPIC: unexpected operator
checking for library containing crypt... -lcrypt
The fix is easy - just take variavle in quotes. Patch is attached. Also, it's possible to use:
if test -z $PICFLAGS ; then
construction instead. Maybe, it's better option.

Fixed - thanks! There was another unescaped usage of $PICFLAGS in the configure instructions for smbwrapper.
