Hi all,
it seems that the setup in
lines 1065-1083 in m4/libtool.m4
(cf. below) do not work for macOS Big Sur because they changed the major development version
of the macOS. When I am linking my programs, I need
-Wl,-undefined, -Wl,-dynamic_lookup
but I end up with
-Wl,-flat_namespace -Wl,-suppress
When I run my own configure with
MACOSX_DEPLOYMOMENT_TARGET='10.16' everything works again.
I provided a potential patch below, with two changes, the first assumes
the MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET that libtool seems to default to,
namely 10.0, where now we have to take care of the fact that macOS
changed from darwin19.x -> darwin20.1
The second change accounts for a correct setting if someone sets
Probably someone else has already reported that issue.
