Subject: How to force the AIX build to output libffi.a instead of
Date: Tue, 8 Dec 2020 08:09:49 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

We are attempting to upgrade libffi from 3.2.1 to 3.3. In all our past
installs we have been able to control the output name by modifying
configure to set shrext_cmds=.a under the aix[4-9]* specs:

  version_type=linux # correct to gnu/linux during the next big refactor

This setting no longer seems to succeed in controlling the output name.
