I am compiling lapack 3.0+updates on a Slackware linux box running kernel 188.8.131.52. When I do a 'g77 -v', I get:
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-slackware-linux/3.3.4/specs
Configured with: ../gcc-3.3.4/configure --prefix=/usr --enable-shared --enable-threads=posix --enable-__cxa_atexit --disable-checking --with-gnu-ld --verbose --target=i486-slackware-linux --host=i486-slackware-linux
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.3.4
The problem I have is that I had expected the compile process to leave me with a share-able lib file liblapack.so or something like that. What I end up with are three files, blas_LINUX.a, lapack_LINUX.a and tmglib_LINUX.a. Can someone here explain to me what I am missing? Is there a configuration setting I missed? Some other step I need to complete?
