Re: (ITS#4982) link libldap_r explicitly with the threading libraries

I think the above was meant for ITS #4981?

This issue, ITS#4982, is that no threading flags (not -pthread, not
-lpthread, not anything) are passed into the final link line of libldap_r,
as near as I can tell.  It's possible that I'm reading the makefile wrong
and this has been fixed in some other way since the Debian patch had been
applied, but libraries/libldap_r/Makefile.in contains:


and build/lib-shared.mk has:

$(LIBRARY): version.lo
        $(LTLINK_LIB) -o $@ $(OBJS) version.lo $(LINK_LIBS)

including only LINK_LIBS, and not the regular LIBS variable (which is what
includes LTHREAD_LIBS via XXXLIBS).  It could be that I'm missing some
contribution to LTLINK_LIB handled by the threading macros, though.
