  • Building libs for uClinux (eg. libxml2)

    I am trying to figure out how to build a library on the Xport Pro and thought I could start with libxml2, which his included in the Linux SDK and can be selected using menuconfig (Kconfig).
    When I attempt to build initially, I get a linker error (see below for a full output listing):
    "./.libs/ file not recognized: File format not recognized".

    From what I have seen in other posts, this means the library build as a shared library instead of a static one. For example, the net-snmp stuff passes in "--enable-shared=no" to the configure script.
    Provided this is correct, how do I get this to work in my setup? The automake build environment is very confusing to me..... From what I have seen, most libraries are configured using the configure script. Eg, If I am not mistaken, the user\net-snmp folder has a makefile which calls configure to generate the actual make files (in the build folder).

    For Expat a makefile which was originally produced by automake was modified and provides the building rules. Interestingly this file contains "DISABLE_SHARED_LIBS = 1" which causes the -fPIC (presumably "position independent code" to NOT be passed into the compiler).

    For libxml2 there is no (final) makefile present yet but it is generated by automake using a standard template (from /linux/tools/ I am now trying to see if I can modify this makefile to generate a static lib....but this turns out to be quite a tricky operation....

    Any help is hugely appreciated!
