Bug in tests/link.test

From: Garrett Wollman
Subject: Bug in tests/link.test

I'm looking at 1.3.4, but the same bug exists at the head of the CVS

link.test erroneously assumes that the library name it is testing for
is the very last text in "$linkresult".  Because libtool writes a
newline after the library name, "$linkresult" actually ends in a
space.  (POSIX requires that newlines in shell command interpolation
be replaced by spaces.)  Fix:

--- link.test.orig      Tue Mar 12 19:53:42 2002
+++ link.test   Tue Mar 12 19:54:17 2002
@@ -16,7 +16,7 @@
 echo "$linkresult"
 case "$linkresult" in
-*../lib/libnlsut.a) ;;
+*../lib/libnlsut.a*) ;;
   echo "$progname: ../lib/libnlsut.a was not used as expected in linking"
   exit 1

I'm not sure on which platform the original test would have worked;
both bash and ash failed the old test in the way that I describe.
