           Summary: shadow hardcodes libmisc.la path, possible others too.
                    Correct this before compile time (kdebase otherwise
                    fails)

        Resolution:
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Book
        AssignedTo: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: gerard at linuxfromscratch.org


Current CVS instructions for shadow include this:

cd /lib &&
mv libmisc.*a libshadow*.a /usr/lib

However, when I was installing kdebase, kcheckpass complained that it=20
can't find libmisc.la in /lib. I moved libmisc.la back to /lib and it=20
worked. So it seems the location of the .la files are hardcoded=20
somewhere (either in shadow or in kde); perhaps it would be better to=20
adjust the install instructions for shadow to just move the .a files?
