Dynamic loader unsatisfied code symbol trouble

Hi,

I have some trouble with library calls from RRDtool.
Actually the rrdtool lib is called from the Munin performance grapher.
I built RRDtool and all its prerequisite libs
(which were zlib, libpng, libart, freetype2)
from the sources on HP-UX 11.11 with HP ANSI cc.
Somehow there seem to be dangling unsatisfied symbols.

$ /opt/munin/lib/munin-update --host gomera --service df
/usr/lib/pa20_64/dld.sl: Unsatisfied code symbol 'rrd_clear_error' in load module '/opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.8.8/PA-RISC2.0-LP64/auto/RRDs/RRDs.sl'.

In the RRDs.sl there seem to be quite a few
undefined symbols

$ nm -u /opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.8.8/PA-RISC2.0-LP64/auto/RRDs/RRDs.sl|wc -w
57

and especially at least 18 RRD specific

$ nm -u /opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.8.8/PA-RISC2.0-LP64/auto/RRDs/RRDs.sl|grep -ci rrd
18

However, I trust this could be fixed with chatr

$ chatr /opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.8.8/PA-RISC2.0-LP64/auto/RRDs/RRDs.sl
/opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.8.8/PA-RISC2.0-LP64/auto/RRDs/RRDs.sl:
64-bit ELF shared library
shared library dynamic path search:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH enabled first
SHLIB_PATH enabled second
embedded path enabled third -lrrd
shared library list:
libm.2
shared library mapped private disabled
shared vtable support disabled
explicit unloading enabled
linkage table protection disabled
segments:
index type address flags size

6 data 8000000100000000 ---m-- D (default)

kernel assisted branch prediction enabled

My librrd built resides here


$ chatr /opt/rrdtool/lib/librrd.sl
/opt/rrdtool/lib/librrd.sl:

static branch prediction disabled
kernel assisted branch prediction enabled
lazy swap allocation for dynamic segments disabled
nulptr references disabled


But even when I set LD_LIBRARY_PATH accordingly
the symbols still remain undefined

$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/rrdtool/lib nm -u /opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.8.8/PA-RISC2.0-LP64/auto/RRDs/RRDs.sl
18


I read in the linker's manpage that one can
influence the binding behaviour through
e.g. "-B immediate -B nonfatal"
(but haven't used it in the Makefiles),
and even chatr's manpage suggests such an example.
But where should such be applied?
Obviously not on the offending shared lib itself.

I know too little (or better nothing)
about the working of the dynamic linker.
So I don't know how to support it in finding the missing symbol definitions.
In dld.sl's manpage an LD_PRELOAD env var is
mentioned.
Would this be of any help?

Rgds.
