21# Debian and Red Hat, and perhaps other vendors, provide both runtime and
22# development packages for some libraries. The runtime packages contain shared
23# libraries with version information in their names (e.g., libgdbm.so.1.7.3);
24# the development packages supplement this with versionless shared libraries
25# (e.g., libgdbm.so).
26#
27# If you want to link against such a library, you must install the development
28# version of the package.
29#
30# These packages use a -dev naming convention in both Debian and Red Hat:
31# libgdbmg1 (non-development version of GNU libc 2-linked GDBM library)
32# libgdbmg1-dev (development version of GNU libc 2-linked GDBM library)
33# So make sure that for any libraries you wish to link Perl with under
34# Debian or Red Hat you have the -dev packages installed.
35#
36# Some operating systems (e.g., Solaris 2.6) will link to a versioned shared
37# library implicitly. For example, on Solaris, `ld foo.o -lgdbm' will find an
38# appropriate version of libgdbm, if one is available; Linux, however, doesn't
39# do the implicit mapping.
