This is a bug report for perl from schmorp@schmorp.de,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.12.3.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please describe your issue here]

ExtUtils::MakeMaker removes valid libraries from LIBS, e.g.:

   LIBS => ["-lpthread -ldb"]

results in:

   Note (probably harmless): No library found for -ldb

Even though the library is installed in the configured compiler search path.

This seems to happen due to multiarch support, i.e. gcc(ld) looks into
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu, but perl does not because it doesn't know about
the real library path.

The suggested fix would be to use the compiler to try to link against
the library to see if it's there (as opposed to yet another layer of
comaptibility hacking :))

[Please do not change anything below this line]
