solved a strange build problem for myself that is somehow related to VXL, CMake
and my particular environment. I don't know if there is any particular
change that should be made to VXL or CMake, but this took me so long to track
down I thought I should briefly report it.
over the past week or two CMake started producing makefiles that use
the "-shared -nostdlib" options instead of "-Wl,-G" to link objects into a
shared library (*.so). With this change all of VXL still builds for me,
but just about all executables produced in the VXL tree stop with a
Bus Error immediately after starting. Everything build fine, but nothing
Solaris 2.7. I saw this problem on both gcc-3.0.3 and gcc-3.0.2. I
isolated the problem (to some extent) by first backing off the compiler version,
which I changed recently, then backing off the VXL source tree about a month,
and then backing off the CMake source tree about a month (a desperate guess that
I really didn't think would have any effect, but it did).
these lines to my CMakeCache...
