When linking a library libA with a library libB using libtool, if libB.la
exists, libtool will add all libraries libB.la refers to (dependency_libs
field) to the linker command line and store them in the dependency_libs
field of libA.la. So everything that subsequently links with libA will also
link to these extra libraries. This causes too much overlinking.
This commit modifies Mk/Uses/libtool.mk so it empties the dependency_libs
field in .la libraries during staging. However, because .la libraries have
very limited use when dependency_libs is empty it makes sense to completely
remove them during staging.
So with this commit USES=libtool is modified to remove .la libraries and a
new form (USES=libtool:keepla) is introduced in case they need to be kept
(dependency_libs is still emptied).
(Only the first 15 lines of the commit message are shown above )
- Remove part of a patch that wasn't entirely correct and let the port
use the WCHAR_T iconv extension instead.
- Add USES=libtool and let libtoolize copy the necessary files instead of
symlinking them such that they can be patched.
- Add a configure check for libusb_handle_events_completed.
New port comms/hidapi.
HIDAPI is a platform independent library that allows applications to
work with USB HID-Class devices. While it can be used to communicate
with standard HID devices like keyboards, mice, and joysticks, it is
most useful when used with custom (Vendor-Defined) HID devices.
