Nevermind...


I've started from the beginning 5x times. I've tried both a Debian and Slackware host, both of which worked in the past. I've tried the 232 and 233 package. Finally, I've tried both 8.0 systemd & the current SVN, without any optimizations.

Each time, the Systemd package gets to some point late in the build and crashes during a link, citing either a missing libblkid, or undefined references in a related header file.
Code:
/usr/bin/ld.gold: error: cannot find -lblkid
src/shared/.libs/libsystemd_shared_la-dissect-image.o:dissect-image.c:function dissect_image: error: undefined reference to 'blkid_new_probe'
src/shared/.libs/libsystemd_shared_la-dissect-image.o:dissect-image.c:function dissect_image: error: undefined reference to 'blkid_probe_set_device'
src/shared/.libs/libsystemd_shared_la-dissect-image.o:dissect-image.c:function dissect_image: error: undefined reference to 'blkid_probe_enable_partitions'
src/shared/.libs/libsystemd_shared_la-dissect-image.o:dissect-image.c:function dissect_image: error: undefined reference to 'blkid_probe_set_partitions_flags'
..
..
In the build instructions, there's a sed related to libblkid and parts of the config.cache are obviously pointed at solving the problem, but they don't seem to fix it in every circumstance.

I'm going to try building a minimal util-linux first, then rebuilding it at the end of the chapter to fix this. But, I'm not sure why the modifications in the instructions don't solve the root problem.

Hi Luridis

It looks like it just isn't finding blkid_* in libblkid (and other components), you could append the library reference on your build line and see if that works. If you're directly referencing an .o file in libblkid in your build, it might be blocking the linker from looking in other components.
Have you changed your build line since the last time this worked?

It worked in the SVN just before 8.0 was released. Keep thinking I missed something, but given the number of tries I've made that seems unlikely. Still, I could just be running on automatic and missing something small.

I wouldn't even need to do it if I had kept my original VM snapshot. But, alas, I did not and my mistake was revealed when I realized I had forgotten that GTK3 wants introspection to even build. Given that I was late into building the media libraries it would have taken hours just to go back and figure out which packages need the --enable-introspection in the configure. So, I just decided to start over.

Nevermind, it was all me and being dumb as hell. In my haste I became convinced the issue was with configure. I checked and double checked and triple checked it. But, even though I've been building these for 10 years, the smallest detail can escape you. I missed the make directive. There are none in BLFS for this package, probably why my eyes slipped over it without noticing. So, I got a little too autopilot during the build.
