netsnmp: improve linking avoiding useless -lz listing in shared build
In commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=13722d58f77d0e9fea9eefc50bf083d19f835433 Patch "0003-configure-Invert-AC_CHECK_LIB-EVP_md5-.-without-lz-w.patch" was intended to fix AC_CHECK_FUNCS() failure on openssl functions. This was due to missing -lz during static linking. But the patch is wrong and results in explicitly linking against -lz in both shared and static build. This makes no sense, since shared linking has transitive dependency so it doesn't need to list -lz after -lssl, -lssl is enough. Differently static linking needs -lz to be listed after -lssl. So the real cause of previous build failure: http://autobuild.buildroot.net/results/881/881139fb049738b16609d39ad5a49bd77ff6b4aa/ is that when AC_CHECK_FUNCS(), $LIBS variable is overwritten with $LIBCRYPTO without taking into accout previous $LIBS content(i.e. where -lz is present). This results in AC_CHEC_FUNCS() to fail while trying to statically link without listing -lz. Then: - Remove current "0003-configure-Invert-AC_CHECK_LIB-EVP_md5-.-without-lz-w.patch" - Add patch "0003-configure-fix-AC_CHECK_FUNCS-EVP_sha224-EVP_sha384-..patch" where add $LIBS content to tail of new $LIBS variable like this: LIBS="$LIBCRYPTO $LIBS" NOTE: $LIBS is at the end to ensure static linking to work correctly. - Add patch 0004-configure-fix-AC_CHECK_FUNCS-TLS_method-TLSv1_method.patch where add $LIBS content to tail of new $LIBS variable like this: LIBS="-lssl $LIBCRYPTO $LIBS" NOTE: $LIBS is at the end to ensure static linking to work correctly. This way AC_CHECK_FUNCS(), when static linking, try to link with -lz too appending it at the end of linking library list. And after every AC_CHECK_FUNCS(), previously saved $LIBS variable gets back to its original value(i.e. containing -lz if present) resulting in having or not -lz appended to library list according to static or shared build.
