Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2] build: skip detecting libpcap via pcap-config
Date: Fri,  9 Oct 2020 15:19:14 +0100
Message-ID: <20201009141914.205284-1-bruce.richardson@intel.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20201008170536.124111-1-bruce.richardson@intel.com>

When compiling for a slightly different architecture, e.g. 32-bit on 64-bit
systems using CFLAGS rather than a cross-file, the pcap-config utility can
often return parameters that are unusable for the build in question, i.e.
providing the native 64-bit library paths rather than checking for 32-bit

Since many distros now include a version of libpcap with a
pkg-config file, and for those that don't find-library should work ok as a
fallback, we can explicitly just use pkg-config in the dependency search,
causing meson to skip trying to use pcap-config.
