[Freeswitch-dev] Compiling error - libsndfile.so

The core issue here is the autotools detection in libsndfile checks for
the headers, and then for the libraries, but the ifdef in the code only
considers if the header files are available.  It appears that autoconf
was able to find the headers, but not the libraries (the output of
configure would confirm this) and this is why it is failing on his box.
I confirmed that this is also still the case in the 1.0.17 release of
libsndfile, although the site does say that this new version does
contain some bugfixes, so we should probably update to it.

Ok I'll try this one more time.


BEGIN ---------------------------------------------------------

Quite simple,


When our build process gets to the module building stage, each module

has it's own Makefile with targets to build it's own depends.

it downloads the tarball with wget and configures it to the same 

target prefix as all of the others.  The lines you pasted reflect

that the directories in the install prefix and the cwd at build time
contain the word "freeswitch" and does not imply much more than that.

snippit of our mod_sndfile's Makefile

        MAKE=$(MAKE) $(BASE)/build/buildlib.sh $(BASE) install
libsndfile-1.0.16.tar.gz --prefix=$(PREFIX) --disable-sqlite


Like I said we only host the exact tarball on our server, checksum it if
you wish:



Feel free to see for yourself if you still do not believe me.




Your library is a welcome addition as a module to our software and 

we have had little trouble with it, thank you.  

If you would reccommend we use the newer version let me know:

END ---------------------------------------------------------


Stuart, Since this is a mailing list I am going to talk to some other

people to save time on mutiple emails, excuse me a minute:


Roman, Here is the downside to your suggestion, this guy is unhappy just
because he *thinks* we keep his code in our tree.

Reply to him and say


We *do* use a pristine copy of thier tarball we just host it 

on our server to save you the bandwidth of people constantly downloading

we do not ship it with our source code so please do not make that

Reply from libsndfile: 

Well then someone needs to explain this:

	> "/usr/local/freeswitch/include"
	> /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 'sndfile.h' 
	> '/usr/local/freeswitch/include/sndfile.h'
	> make[5]: Leaving directory
	> make[4]: Leaving directory
	> make[3]: Leaving directory
