Description Petr Pisar 2018-09-06 14:56:33 UTC
With gd-devel-2.2.5-6.fc30.x86_64, perl-GD-2.69-1.fc30 stopped building:

gcc  -lpthread -shared -Wl,-z,relro -Wl,-z,now -specs=/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-hardened-ld -L/usr/local/lib -fstack-protector-strong  GD.o  -o blib/arch/auto/GD/  \
   -L/usr/lib -L/usr/lib64 -L/usr/lib64 -L/usr/lib64 -lm -lz -lpng16 -lz -lfreetype -lfontconfig -lfreetype -ljpeg -limagequant -lXpm -lX11 -L/usr/lib -ltiff -lwebp -lgd -lperl   \
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -limagequant

This is caused by latest gd commit:

commit 1c371f67ec3da70b46eee4a1b3aeaf3847f61038 (HEAD -> master, origin/master, origin/f29
, origin/HEAD)
Author: Marek Skalický <mskalick>

    Use libimagequant library (RHBZ#1468338)

that added Build-time dependency on libimagequant-devel but forgot to add run-time dependency to gd-devel package. The "-limagequant" linker flag comes from:

$ gdlib-config --ldflags --libs 
gdlib-config: warning: this script is deprecated; please use the pkg-config file instead.

-lgd -lm -lz -lpng16 -lz -lfreetype -lfontconfig -lfreetype -ljpeg -limagequant -fopenmp -lXpm -lX11 -L/usr/lib -ltiff -lwebp

Also the output differs from pk-config:

$ pkg-config --libs gdlib

Either add the run-time dependency on fix gdlib-config.

Comment 1 Marek Skalický 2018-09-10 09:25:58 UTC
Thanks for reporting this, requirement on libimagequant-devel was missing.

Please note:
"gdlib-config: warning: this script is deprecated
please use the pkg-config file instead."

pkg-config is correct and rpm dependency on libimagequant-devel is added now.
