we are distributing Mira in Debian and got a report from our Ubuntu friends
that Mira 3.4.0 needs to be patched in order to be linked with ‘--as-needed’.
This patch can be avoided if you use autoconf 2.68 or superior in your next
release. Can you consider that upgrade ?
See below for more technical discussion.
Have a nice day,
