./configure: Spaces in LD_LIBRARY_PATH should be : (colons) -> fixed after July 18 2019

Reported by: Lars Nordenström Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 6.0.8
Keywords: configure Qt LD_LIBRARY_PATH Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Linux

Description

I have a separate locally build Qt, so when I configure I say

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=.../qt/pkgconfig LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.../qt/lib ./configure ...

On line 1525 of ./configure

LIBQT5="-L$LIBDIR5 $LIBQT5"

LIBQT5 is set to a value vith spaces in in (since LIBQT5 already has a value from pkgconfig in the line before).

LIBQT5 is then processed by strip_L and passed to test_execute_path. strip_L does not remove the embedded space.

The value is then used for LD_LIBRARY_PATH which now has a space as separator, not a colon.

Execution fails, causing configure to fail to recognize my local Qt installation.

My quick fix was (line 1529):

test_execute_path "`strip_L "$LIBQT5"|sed 's/ /:/g'`" nofatal ....

Source file is VirtualBox-6.0.8.tar.bz2

Looks reasonable. What about the following patch based on your fix? And can I credit you in the change log if the patch works for you?

  • Summary changed from ./configure: Spaces in LD_LIBRARY_PATH should be : (colons) to ./configure: Spaces in LD_LIBRARY_PATH should be : (colons) -> fixed after July 18 2019

No response, so I committed the change after checking that it does not break our own builds. It should be visible as r79836 in a few minutes.
