Subject [jira] Updated: (COUCHDB-562) link couchjs with bound libmozjs
Date Mon, 31 Jan 2011 22:43:30 GMT


Randall Leeds updated COUCHDB-562:

    Attachment: 0002-prevent-excessive-linking-of-mozjs-COUCHDB-1033.patch


0001: This version of the patch uses pkg-config, when available, to determine how to link
couchjs to spidermonkey. It makes to attempt to solve LD_LIBRARY_PATH and rpath issues, since
distributions (*cough* debian) tend to have strong beliefs about how to do these things. It
should be up to the distribution shipping xulrunner-devel to ensure that appropriate rpath
options are specified in the pkg-config files for mozilla-js such that they will not break
with minor version upgrades or to patch couchjs to set the LB_LIBRARY_PATH intelligently at
runtime. I think this is the best we can do upstream.

0002: While I was hear, I discovered, reported, and subsequently incorporated COUCHDB-1033
- prevent excessive linking of mozjs. It only happened when --with-js-lib configure option.
Now it doesn't.

If you review this and commit it to trunk before end of day I'll consider it my birthday present.

> If you build the couchdb from the source with a prefix set and --with-js-[lib|include]
option the resulting couchjs programm in <prefix>/lib/couchdb/bin/couchjs does not know
where to find the specified which was specified in with-js-lib. This causes that
quite all test will fail. 
> To fix this the rpath has to setup during the compile. I don't had a look where to do
> but a small shell wrapper fix it also
