Subject: Re: stray references

I've seen this before but I ignored it at the time.

From what I can see with:
find /usr/ |xargs grep -n -e "/butterfly-build"
the /usr/lib/*.la GCC files reference the build directory with -L's, but not 
with -I's. Maybe some ./configure scripts are using the .la files to find 
extra include directories, but this happens with non-combined builds too, so 
this issue should be happening in LFS too.

quantum ( is running LFS-SVN-20060527, and 
has "dependency_libs=' -L/sources/binutils-build/libiberty/pic -liberty'"
in her .la files. I'm running LFS-SVN-20070514, with modifications which I can 
no longer recall but I did use a combined build (butterfly) tree, and 
my "dependency_libs=" lines are empty. So I have no idea what's going on 

Other than that, I'm not sure what could be the cause of the -I's. If they are 
hard coded in gcc/g++'s program then the grep should have matched it, and it
