    Simple makefile question, shared libraries

    I link to a bunch of static and shared libraries. The static ones are easy:

    Code:
    -L $(HOME)/lib -L $(LIBDIRS) $(TRANSACT_LIBS) $(MPI_LIBS)
    Pretty straight forward. TRANSACT_LIBS corresponds to a bucnh of static libraries (-lnuma -lutil etc etc etc)

    However, for MPI_LIBS, these are .so files, and I have to put the full path. When I try to do -L dir something.so something2.so .... it says it can't find the .so files.

    How do I specify a directory to search for the .so files? I have the appropriate directory appended to my LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable...

    There's a foreach function in make that you can use. I don't recall the syntax off hand; you'll have to look it up.
    It is too clear and so it is hard to see.
    A dunce once searched for fire with a lighted lantern.
    Had he known what fire was,
    He could have cooked his rice much sooner.
