#2508: Autofs - $(EXTDIR) and Dependencies
 Reporter:  randy at linuxfromscratch.org  |       Owner:  blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
     Type:  defect                      |      Status:  new                           
 Priority:  normal                      |   Milestone:  6.3                           
Component:  BOOK                        |     Version:  SVN                           
 Severity:  normal                      |    Keywords:                                
 Noted in the Autofs instructions is the command:

 ln -sf  ../init.d/autofs $(EXTDIR)/rc.d/rcsysinit.d/S52autofs

 I cannot figure out what $(EXTDIR) is. If I'm just having a dumb
 attack, please disregard this part of the ticket.


 OpenLDAP and Cyrus-SASL should be listed as dependencies for this
 package. It will look for them and build .so modules if they are
 found. It will also look for libXML2 for use with both of them but
 only to see if the version needs a workaround (which it doesn't).
 Therefore, I don't think libXML2 needs to be listed.
