Hey Richard, sorry i didn’t see your patch. as i wrote in the beginning, this is one of my first patches i committed and i might have done something wrong. In this case i haven’t had a look at the bug list first. sorry for that.
i don’t want to say your patch is not working, since i didn’t try it yet, but i’ll give it a try tomorrow and tell you if it fixed the problem. right now it looks like a nice solution to me. and it does fix the problem at it’s root source! but as is said, i’ll give it a try tomorrow and write back again. kind regards christian > On May 9, 2016, at 9:55 PM, Richard PALO <rich...@netbsd.org> wrote: > > Le 10/05/16 02:43, Christian a écrit : >> i’ve had a look again at libtool.m4 and don’t really get why RM is set >> wrong. obviously the _LT_CONFIG macro literally requires >> _LT_FILEUTILS_DEFAULT, which should set RM to ‘rm -f’.
