Description
In sage-env
, we meanwhile add (more precisely, append) ${SAGE_LOCAL}/include
to CPATH
, and ${SAGE_LOCAL}/lib
to LIBRARY_PATH
.
Besides that this is non-portable, or rather a GCC feature, it is not equivalent to adding / prepending -I${SAGE_LOCAL}/include
to CPPFLAGS
/CFLAGS
/CXXFLAGS
and -L${SAGE_LOCAL}/lib
to LDFLAGS
.
First of all, search paths / folders specified on the command line precede all others, and second, those specified through CPATH
, LIBRARY_PATH
etc. are not necessarily searched before system folders.
This currently leads to problems with e.g. readline and R (which doesn't support configuring with --with-readline=<prefix>
, but just =yes
or =no
), where adding Sage's directories was dropped from spkg-install
.
To test this, try for example
$ mkdir -pv /tmp/LOOK_HERE $ env LIBRARY_PATH=/tmp/LOOK_HERE $CC -print-search-dirs | egrep '^libraries|LOOK_HERE' # (and/or) $ env LIBRARY_PATH=/tmp/LOOK_HERE $CC -v -x c /dev/null -o /dev/null 2>&1 | egrep '^LIBRARY_PATH|LOOK_HERE'
where $CC
is the compiler / GCC of your choice (e.g. just gcc
).

Not using LIBRARY_PATH any more
Isn't LIBRARY_PATH for runtime whereas LD_LIBRARY_PATH is for linking?
