Subject: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH v5] build: remove redundant libpcap link
Date: Fri,  9 Apr 2021 14:25:51 +0200
Message-ID: <20210409122551.265939-1-thomas@monjalon.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210409083927.8345-1-gabriel.ganne@6wind.com>

From: Gabriel Ganne <gabriel.ganne@6wind.com>

The pcap PMD and the librte_port both declare their dependency to libpcap
with a line "ext_deps += pcap_dep".
Then meson automatically adds this dependency to the pkg-config file
in the "Requires.private" section for static builds.

The additional update of dpdk_extra_ldflags was adding the dependency
in the "Libs.private" section of the pkg-config, that is unnecessary.

Fixes: efd5d1a8d8dd ("drivers/net: build some vdev PMDs with meson")
Fixes: 268fa581b1ff ("port: fix pcap support with meson")

I have a doubt whether this option is really always useless.
In the case of an old pcap (<1.9) without pkg-config support,
and with the minimum meson supported (0.47.1),
are we sure the generated pkg-config file will include -lpcap?
