RE: Library issue on AIX 5.2

heres what ive done in the past...  havent don this on the newer openldap libs on aix...

create export file:
nm -B <static lib>|sed -n -e 's/^.*[     ]\([BCDT]\)[    ][      ]*\(\)\([_A-Za-z][_A-Za-z0-9]*\)$/\1 \2\3 \3/p' | sed 's/.* //' | sort | uniq > <output exp file name>.exp
nm -B liblber.a|sed -n -e 's/^.*[     ]\([BCDT]\)[    ][      ]*\(\)\([_A-Za-z][_A-Za-z0-9]*\)$/\1 \2\3 \3/p' | sed 's/.* //' | sort | uniq > ../liblber.exp

ar -x <static lib>

create library:
cc -bM:SRE -o <out> *.o -L<library search path> -lc <other libs> -bE:../<exp file name>.exp -bnoentry -bnoquiet
cc -bM:SRE -o libldap.a *.o -L/usr/local/lib -lc -llber -lssl -lcrypto -bE:../libldap.exp -bnoentry -bnoquiet

the formating of the spaces matters!!  i also used the ibm c compiler, and this was done for 32 bit builds...
i think ive used ibm's ld for this as well (creating the lib), its been a while...

please note that i used this on aix 4.3.3 and 5.1.  havent tried this on 5.2, so things may have changed enough that this wont produce anything useful.

Could you tell me how to create the shared lib by hand ? I need the
shared lib for NSS_LDAP.

Thanks a million.

if you check the archives, youll see that libtool doesnt work well on
aix.  another poster also mentioned this.  i create the shared libs by
hand (if i need them shared)...

The --disable-dynamic flag does not work. It still did not link in the

But I do find the answer. 

I am now using GNU ld, ar, and gcc in the search path. It fixed the
library issue on ldapsearch binary but it does not create shared
libraries. It said I am using GNU ld 2.9.1 or lower, but actually I am
using 2.14. I may need to change the configure script to fix this issue.
The "--without-gnu-ld" and "--with-gnu-ld=no" do not fix this issue. It
stills say my ld is below 2.9.1 !!

there is a flag that disables dynamic linking for the configure script. 
For some reason libtool is generally broken for AIX.
