I just discovered that I cannot prelink a dynamic library produced by bbv1.
The system I tried this on was RHEL 3. The error message I got was:
prelink: ... section file offsets not monotonically increasing
After a lot of head scratching, I decided to disable the use of objcopy in
gcc-tools.jam, et voila, now prelink works.
This leaves me wondering why objcopy is used at all. I found some reference
on this ML to a linker performance problem that this should fix, but I
wasn't successful in digging up more info.
Is objcopy still needed? I don't seem to get any noticable speed benefit
when it's used. Is there some way to disable the use of objcopy, besides
creating a new tools file?
