Build from source pointing to installed libs (e.g. pcre)

hi,

i’m trying to build from source on an ubuntu system which has libpcre3
installed:

[email protected]:~/Downloads/nginx-1.3.14$ dpkg -l | grep pcre
ii libpcre3:i386 1:8.30-5ubuntu1 i386 Perl 5 Compatible Regular
Expression
Library - runtime files

but i can’t for the life of me get the configure script to resolve to
this,
libpcre.so.3 is in /lib/i386-linux-gnu, so i’ve tried:

–with-ld-opt="-L/lib/i386-linux-gnu"

but still get:


checking for PCRE library … not found
checking for PCRE library in /usr/local/ … not found
checking for PCRE library in /usr/include/pcre/ … not found
checking for PCRE library in /usr/pkg/ … not found
checking for PCRE library in /opt/local/ … not found

./configure: error: the HTTP rewrite module requires the PCRE library.
You can either disable the module by using --without-http_rewrite_module
option, or install the PCRE library into the system, or build the PCRE
library
statically from the source with nginx by using --with-pcre=
option.

any guidance appreciated!

building stuff from source require installation of development
(-dev/-devel) packages of its dependencies in ubuntu, rhel, and some
other distros.

(read: try installing libpcre3-dev)

installing the related ‘dev’ packages was the ticket:

  • libpcre3-dev
  • libssl-dev
  • zlib1g-dev

then acquiring source and static linking can be avoided…

thanks @edho!
