Subject Re: config/2372: If libcrypt is installed, it will be used even if compiling for libc5 (fwd)
Date Mon, 08 Jun 1998 06:12:02 GMT
Hmm.  The other thing we could do is try with their settings to compile
something that has a reference to crypt() in without -lcrypt; if it works,
cool, if not try adding -lcrypt and seeing if it works.
