Description Steve Langasek 2009-03-01 15:11:15 UTC
The GNU ld version check in configure.in contains two bugs:

- it tries to discard all version output preceding the version number using .*, which is greedy and throws away the major version number
- it has a 'test' syntax error by omitting spaces around the '='.

This causes samba to fail to use the symbol version scripts when creating shared libraries with binutils 2.19.1.

Patch to follow.
