mpfr dynamic library

Reported by: vincent-opdarw@… Owned by: leimy@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:


As of version 2.2.0, we support the build of an MPFR dynamic library (thanks to libtool) with:

configure --enable-shared

The dynamic library shouldn't be libmpfr.2.2.0.dylib (matching the package version), but libmpfr.1.0.0.dylib (as this denotes an interface version -- see the libtool documentation).

Unfortunately the tarball was built under Debian, which had a buggy autoconf (the autoconf package was fixed just after the MPFR release), and --enable-shared doesn't seem to have any effect under darwin. Running "autoreconf" is a solution for those who have the corresponding tools. Otherwise I don't know if there's one better than the current patch in the mpfr port (but $(VERSION) should be changed by 1.0.0).
