I'm seeing something strange. When linking Boost.Python, the command line is:
"g++" -g ..... -L"/usr/lib/python2.3/config"
however, there's no -lpython2.3 there, and the following output:
Dynamic segment at offset 0xba240 contains 24 entries:
Tag Type Name/Value
0x00000001 (NEEDED) Shared library: [libstdc++.so.5]
0x00000001 (NEEDED) Shared library: [libm.so.6]
0x00000001 (NEEDED) Shared library: [libgcc_s.so.1]
0x00000001 (NEEDED) Shared library: [libc.so.6]
0x0000000e (SONAME) Library soname:
say Boost.Python does not link to Python. This looks OK, because when
extension is loaded, symbols in Boost.Python will be resolved against
interpreter binary and the -L option in the command line is accidental.
1. Is my understanding correct?
2. Is linking Boost.Python agaist Python bad for some reason? Does it matter?
The only case where it matter is if one dynamically loads Boost.Python with
the RTLD_NOW flag and before loading Python interpreter -- which does not
seem very realistic.
