Bug #838

Regression: Visibility support disabled on Linux, when it should be enabled

Estimated time:


On my trusted Debian system, the usual make config; ./configure --disable-shared reports


checking whether to enable dependency tracking... yes
checking whether to enable symbol visibility support...
checking whether to use the lens database for Nikon lens names... yes

-- Exiv2 0.23 feature configuration summary
-- Build a shared library......... NO
-- Use symbol visibility support.. NO

Visibility support is disabled, when it should - and used to be - on.

config.log is attached, it looks like the test for visibility support has no result (used to be 'yes', see e.g., gsoc2012 branch, which still works fine).

Fix submitted: SVN:2859.

Apologies for this. I had a typo in the spelling of visibility which turned it off on all platforms, when I only intended cygwin and mingw.

I've fixed the typos, however I'm not convinced that I have this right. If it's not fixed, can you revert to your original code in SVN:2685 I only submitted SVN:2776 for my convenience.
