RE: File and Libtool...

        I have discovered why the configure script fails. The grep version on my system was 'GNU grep 2.3' and for some unknown (quite confusing) reasons, this grep version would fail with a patern such as:

        'ELF [0-9][0-9]*-bits (shared object | dynamic library)'

because of the syntax (A | B) that's apparently unsupported.

As a result a lot of detection fails, and particularly the detection concerning shared library (detecting Gnu Ld, libtool detecting shared lib...etc..)

The solution I used: upgrade to 'GNU grep 2.4' and everything's fine (I do feel better now...;)

PS: This problem doesn't really concern libtool itself, if someone could forward it to the proper gnome list (or send me an address)...

So, what is the output /usr/bin/file produces?

Understood.  This is kind-of fixed in the CVS version of libtool.  (It
no longer uses file on GNU/Linux/x86)
