IRIX: GDAL uses a too big command line for linking when using included libTIFF/GeoTIFF

Description (last modified by Jukka Rahkonen)

On IRIX (N32) at the last stage of compilation process, the linker (ld32) fails
due to a too long command line. I've used included libTIFF and included
libGeoTIFF.

You'll find attached the output of the linker, my config.log and the
port/cpl_config.h file.

Patch available. Will supply it after I ran full testing on it.

At the moment I'm getting lots of warnings when I link mapserver (linked against
system's libtiff) against it. I'm not sure if mapserver works with it, because
of the issue we discussed recently with mapserver+libgd on the mapserver-dev
mailing list.

Ich attached a patch to #652 that also fixes this IRIX problem. With the
mapserver linked against GDAL I was unable to get raster images working. I got
some 'xyz' previously defined here and there messages, I don't know if this is a
sign of the same bug.

Is compiling on IRIX a real problem nowadays of can we close this ticket?

We officially support no platform, and on those zero-supported platforms, IRIX is less than not supported ;-) More seriously if people want to run on IRIX, having a decent compiler (GCC) is probably a pre-requisite.
