link.sh   [plain text]


#! /bin/sh
#
# link.sh -- try linking Vim with different sets of libraries, finding the
# minimal set for fastest startup.  The problem is that configure adds a few
# libraries when they exist, but this doesn't mean they are needed for Vim.

# Warning: This fails miserably if the linker doesn't return an error code!
#
# Otherwise this script is fail-safe, falling back to the original full link
# command if anything fails.

# If auto/link.sed already exists, use it.  We assume a previous run of
# link.sh has found the correct set of libraries.

# If linking works with the full link command, try removing some libraries,
# that are known not to be needed on at least one system.
# Remove auto/pathdef.c if there is a new link command and compile it again.
# There is a loop to remove libraries that appear several times.
#
# Notes:
# - Can't remove Xext; It links fine but will give an error when running gvim
#   with Motif.
# - Don't remove the last -lm: On HP-UX Vim links OK but crashes when the GTK
#   GUI is started, because the "floor" symbol could not be resolved.
