bzip2 32-bit is not tested in multilib

Reported by: ken Owned by: ken
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: BOOK Version: CLFS Standard 1.0.0
Keywords: Cc:


At some point we changed to 'make libbz2.a' instead of 'make' for the 32-bit libraries because it creates all we need. The text still says "Recompile the package using a non-shared library and test it." which has confused at least one builder, because the tests are not run. The Makefile says

all: libbz2.a bzip2 bzip2recover test

The test target depends on the static bzip2.

Although I like running tests, I'm ambivalent about the bzip2 tests, because as it is shipped they only test the static code. It seems to be there are three choices:

  1. Change the text to omit "and test it".
  1. revert to make CC=... CXX=... without a target, so that all the targets are compiled and executed (this wastes marginal time compiling bzip2recover).
  1. If people want to test, add a mention of "make CC=... CXX=... test"
