Subject: No LibX11 Libtool Archive Installed
Date: Sun, 27 Mar 2011 22:16:40 -0400
Hello,

The latest GTK+-2.24.3 failed to build on my system because of the
following error:

/bin/grep: /usr/lib64/libX11.la: No such file or directory
/bin/sed: can't read /usr/lib64/libX11.la: No such file or directory
libtool: link: `/usr/lib64/libX11.la' is not a valid libtool archive

The libX11.la that is missing should be in the x11-libs/libX11 package.
But why is libX11.la missing?

I can emerge libX11 using USE="static-libs" or USE="-static-libs"
but libX11.la is not produced in either case.

The emerge log when building libX11 always shows the following:

Removing unnecessary ... x11-libs/libX11-1.4.2/image/usr/lib64/libX11-xcb.la
Removing unnecessary ... x11-libs/libX11-1.4.2/image/usr/lib64/libX11.la

So the .la files are being produced but are being removed afterwards.

Does anyone else have a missing /usr/lib64/libX11.la file?

Frank Peters
