Subject [jira] [Commented] (THRIFT-4412) thrift cmake does not use absolute library path, linking system libraries
Date Fri, 08 Dec 2017 13:55:00 GMT


James E. King, III commented on THRIFT-4412:

CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH only controls the cmake find_ routines.  I don't think it is supposed to
be used to add a link library directory to the linker's search path.  There may be a cmake
option you can set for the FindBoost module that will force it to use full paths instead.
 I'm not convinced this is a thrift project issue (yet).

> I build thrift using cmake on Linux. It works generally very good on many platforms (I've
tested Linux, Windows and MacOSX extensively). But one issue is plaguing me. I have my own
custom boost libraries, libevent and others. I set {{CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH}} to their install
directory. This generally also works well, and cmake finds the libraries. However in the final
Makefile, the linker command uses {{-lxxx}} for library {{xxx}} instead of the usual cmake
absolute path {{/a/b/c/}}. This is a problem because {{ld}} suddenly prefers the
system libraries over my custom builds. This in turn breaks the build for me.
> I do not have this problem with any other cmake builds. And I tried various workarounds
to force cmake to use the absolute path, but failed. Did somebody maybe add this on purpose?
