As far as I can investigate the situation configure script tries to
build following source to find regex library:
| /* Override any GCC internal prototype to avoid an error.
| Use char because int might match the return type of a GCC
| builtin and then its argument prototype would still apply. */
| #ifdef __cplusplus
| extern "C"
| char regfree ();
| main ()
| return regfree ();
| return 0;
There is 3 attempts to build it with or without various libraries:
1) cc -o conftest.exe -g -O2 conftest.c -lws2_32 >&5
C:\temp\temp\ccKv1vKc.o: In function `main':
d:\MyProgram\kokoko\openldap-2.4.33/conftest.c:69: undefined reference
2) cc -o conftest.exe -g -O2 conftest.c -lregex -lws2_32 >&5
D:\Dev\mingw\bin/ld.exe: cannot find -lregex
3) cc -o conftest.exe -g -O2 conftest.c -lgnuregex -lws2_32 >&5
D:\Dev\mingw\bin/ld.exe: cannot find -lgnuregex
But PCRE posix wrappers lives in libpcreposix.a. Is there any way to
use pcre libraries (libpcreposix.a + libpcre.a) for openldap build?
Should such behavior of configuration script be consifdered as bug?
