10.31.1. Installation of Acl

Apply a sed to install the documentation with a versioned directory:

sed -i -e 's|/@pkg_name@|&-@pkg_version@|' include/builddefs.in

Apply a sed to fix a few tests:

sed -i "s:| sed.*::g" test/{sbits-restore,cp,misc}.test

Prepare Acl for compilation:

CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" \
./configure \
    --prefix=/usr \
    --libdir=/lib64 \

Compile the package:


The Acl tests need a filesystem which supports access controls after Coreutils has been built with the Acl libraries. Return to this section after Coreutils has been installed. Test the results:

make tests

Install the package:

make install install-dev install-lib

Recreate the symlink in /usr/lib64 and remove the shared link from /lib64:

ln -sfv ../../lib64/$(readlink /lib64/libacl.so) /usr/lib64/libacl.so
rm -v /lib64/libacl.so

Set the proper permissions on the shared library:

chmod 755 -v /lib64/libacl.so.1.1.0
