>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: native
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha

> The configure script generated by hadoop-common/hadoop-common-project/hadoop-common/src/main/native/configure.ac
uses the AC_COMPUTE_NEEDED_DSO m4 macro to generate a small probe program in C which it then
compiles and links, and then scans the resultant binary to find the names of certain libraries:
currently this is used for Zlib and Snappy.
> I was unable to compile with -Pnative on my Ubuntu Linux install because configure could
not find libz and libsnappy. This turned out to be because the linker is removing the dependencies
on libz and libsnappy at link-time because the libraries in question are not used in the simple
probe code generated by the AC_COMPUTE_NEEDED_DSO m4 macro.
> So my fix is modify the AC_COMPUTE_NEEDED_DSO to take another parameter that copies the
given argument's text into the C program. Then, in the call to AC_COMPUTE_NEEDED_DSO, we can
use this additional parameter, to include, in the generated C code, an actual library function
call for each library. This prevents the linker from removing the linkage to the desired libraries.
