Subject [Bug 62640] libtool invocations should use --tag=CC
Date Thu, 30 Aug 2018 14:09:19 GMT

--- Comment #3 from Rainer Jung <rainer.jung@kippdata.de> ---
As far as I remember from having similar troubls long ago, the libtool script
runs into the "unable to infer tagged configuration" error, when you compile
with compiler or CC which is not a leading substring of what is set as "CC" (or
"LTCC"?) in the libtool script itself.

So in some sense libtool, when created, records compiler info and refuses to
compile if you change the compiler later in an incompatible way (adding flags
at the end of CC would be compatible).

What I do not know, if custom CC will overwrite libtool builtin CC when you add
the --tag flag.

To get the piture clear, we would need to know, what the definition of CC and
LTCC is in the various libtool scripts involved (platform one, APR one), what
CC was used to compile APR and what CC should be used to compile the artefact
that fails compilation.
