Package: libfirebird2-classic
Version: 1.5.1-3
Severity: important

When I try to use a libfbclient.so.1.5.1 shared library, an error about
unresolved symbols occurs. The symbols are pthread_* belonging to
libpthread.so.0 shared library. When I set it in LD_PRELOAD, everything
is OK. This is because the libpthread.so.0 dependency isn't in
libfbclient.so's dynamic block (NEEDED items). This is because when
linking libfbclient, a -lpthread option should be passed to gcc but it
isn't (for libfbclient). So there should be a switch "-pthread" in
CFLAGS in builds/posix/Makefile.in.libfbclient.

Now I see it's already fixed in firebird's CVS:

"Use GNU autoconf macros to determine switches required to generate
threaded binaries properly"
