Bug #121121, was updated on 2000-Nov-02 08:33
Here is a current snapshot of the bug.
Bug Group: Platform-specific
Summary: Dynamic loading on Solaris does not work
Details: Dynamic loading of shared libraries (Python/dynload_shlib) does not work under Solaris. This is due to a bug in the autoconf script. The patch at ftp://ftp.thewrittenword.com/outgoing/pub/python-2.0-solaris-dynload.patch fixes it.
The problem is that AC_CHECK_LIB(dl, dlopen) will never define HAVE_DLOPEN (AC_CHECK_FUNCS(dlopen) does that) which in turn will never define $ac_cv_func_dlopen. Anyway, using internal autoconf macros is icky. Redo the autoconf test because it will cache the results.
