Joe Van Andel:
|I grabbed the latest CVS version of distutils, as of 3/15/2000.
|I'm building C Python extensions under Solaris and Linux. Under Solaris,
|I need to specify the '-R' options. 'rpath' is documented to do this,
|but doesn't have any affect.
|In ccompiler.py, I notice the _fix_link_args() routine manipulates
|libraries and library_dirs, but doesn't use rpath.
|I suspect _fix_link_args() is part of what needs to be fixed.
Just wanted to pitch in that we need this for IRIX and FreeBSD as well:
- Solaris - -R
- IRIX - -rpath
- FreeBSD - -rpath
