Category: 51. Configure and Build Tools
Group: current: 8.4.11
Submitted By: Paul Corner (paul_c)

Summary: -soname missing from GNU builds
Affects current 8.4.11 release and cvs HEAD.
After packaging tcl8.4 and tk8.4 for an experimental Debian
based distro, the systems abort with a message about not
finding LIBTCL 8.4 & LIBTK 8.4 - This can be tracked to the
linker not inserting soname.
Borrowing SHLIB_LD_FLAGS from tcl8.4-8.4.9 and hacking
unix/tcl.m4 and unix/Makefile.in, I managed to fix the
problem for i386 builds.. The diff would need cleaning up
before submission and would probably break other unix
builds (assuming one is required).

I'd be prepared to see an option adding to our configure
script to allow people to set such things. I've no idea what
the default value should be though, particularly as many
apps could be relinked adequately against multiple versions
of the Tcl library (e.g. 8.3 and 8.5) as we maintain a very
high degree of compatability most of the time.
