Ticket #2371 (closed defect: fixed)
GDAL plugins path is not coherently managed in the building system: please avoid embedded paths.
|Reported by:||frankie||Owned by:||warmerdam|
It would be better introducing an --autoload=/custom/path for the plugins directory instead of embedding a fixed path as in the GDAL/OGR cores (currently /lib/gdalplugins). The GDAL_DRIVER_PATH/OGR_DRIVER_PATH environment variables can be retained as well, but apparenly thery are not documented out of the source code (if I'm not missing something).
This is the same approach used in the grass configuration script in frmts/grass and it would allow packager to customize without patching sources. Patching is required in order to have multiple paths for different cohexisting libraries.
