Recently I was trying to build nginx 1.10.0 from source and add nginx-x-rid-header custom module (https://github.com/newobj/nginx-x-rid-header) using rpmbuild. Obviously I had to edit provided nginx.spec file. First attempt was to add both --add-module=../git/nginx-x-rid-header and --with-ld-opt=-lossp-uuid to configure command, but unfortunately compilation was failing due to missing --with-ld-opt=-lossp-uuid in obj/Makefile while I was using provided nginx.spec.

Here's part of diff, which I had to add to specfile. It will add missing ld-opt parameter to obj/Makefile after ./configure finishes.

I think it must be something with moving common configure args to macro (according to Changelog - in version 1.9.12, so earlier versions might be affected to). Basicly I can't add any extra parameter using --extra-ld-opt.

  • Component changed from other to nginx-package

Looks like the problem you are seeing is because --with-ld-opt added in spec file for perl overrides the one you've added. This doesn't looks like a bug - rather, you've edited the spec file incorrectly.

Let our package maintainers to take a look if it is possible to easily improve things and make editing spec file simplier. As far as I understand, --with-ld-opt="-Wl,-E" added for perl should not be needed at all now, as it's anyway added by nginx for dynamic modules support since nginx 1.9.11. Removing it should resolve the problem.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Correct, it's not needed to pass the option these days. I've removed it from the spec files now, and passing the extra arguments should now be possible.
